Yorkshire's first whisky distillery hosts first Burns Night Supper since 2020


Yorkshire's first whisky distillery has announced the date of its first Burns supper at the distillery since 2020.


On 27thJanuary,the team at Hunmanby-based Spirit of Yorkshire will celebrate the birthday of Scotland's famous poet, Robbie Burns with a traditional haggis supper that will be accompanied with cask samples and tastings of the distillery's single malt whiskies.


Event organiser, Amy Teasdale is looking forward to hosting a Burns supper with a Yorkshire twist: "Our philosophy here at the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery is all about respecting tradition but doing things our own way, and we apply this philosophy to Burns Night as well as whisky making! Keeping many of the Scottish Burns Night traditions alive but introducing some special North and East Yorkshire elements too, we'll be getting in the festive mood with good food, good company and Filey Bay whisky that is produced from field to bottle here on the Yorkshire coast."


Tickets cost £35 and include a whisky cocktail to start, a two-course supper and five drams of Filey Bay whisky. They are available by calling 01723 891758 or online at


Visitors to Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery can also enjoy guided tours and home-made refreshments fromthe Pot Still Coffee Shop seven days a week, all year round.


Spirit of Yorkshire is a collaboration between farmer and brewer, Tom Mellor from Wold Top Brewery and business partner, David Thompson. The pair have invested significantly to follow their dream of creating a Yorkshire whisky that doesn't simply replicate Scotch. The distillery is a true field to bottle business and boasts some of the most impressive distilling equipment in the country, includingtwo of the largest Forsyth pot stills operating in the UK outside of Scotland.
