Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery Filey Bay "STR Finish" English Single Malt Whisky
48% ABV, 700 ml, Batch 2, made in England
"Filey Bay STR Finish spent years maturing in Bourbon casks before being transferred for ‘finishing’ in shaved, toasted and re-charred (STR) red wine Barriques, which came from sunny Rioja vineyards in Spain, then bottled at 48% alc.
As with all our whiskies, Filey Bay STR Finish is made with 100% homegrown barley, grown and distilled from field to bottle, here on the Yorkshire Coast of England."
"At the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery, we’re making world class whisky on the Yorkshire Coast of England.
We believe in doing things properly and we’re obsessed with every step of the growing and distilling process, from field to bottle.
We define each part of the whisky creation process ourselves. We choose the variety of barley based on quality. We farm it sustainably, leading the way with our progressive farming techniques. We use 100% homegrown Yorkshire barley in our whisky. We distil by hand and nose. And we source our casks from the very best cooperages around the world.
Mentored by renowned whisky expert, the late Dr. Jim Swan, our instinctive approach is to make a whisky that doesn’t just replicate Scotch. Instead we take the best of tradition and apply new thinking to create truly unique whiskies."
