Yorkshire Whisky Distillery Wins Best Drink Producer Award

Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky distillery has won a regional competition.

Hunmanby’s Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery won the Drink Producer of the Year Award at the Yorkshire Life Food and Drink Awards 2023 which were announced in this month’s magazine. Spirit of Yorkshire’s Marketing Director, Jenni Ashwood is delighted with the result, adding:

“We’re Yorkshire’s first whisky distillery and are leading the way for others to follow. This award helps to put our distillery, and Yorkshire whisky, on the world whisky map."

Northern Monk Brewery and Yorkshire Wolds Apple Juice Co were highly commended for the same award.

Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery is home to Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, Filey Bay and is one of only a handful of distilleries worldwide that grows barley for whisky production.
