After the sell-out success of its first virtual tasting event, the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery has doubled the capacity for its Autumn tasting event that takes place online next month.

Between 7 and 9pm on Thursday, 15th October, the team at the Hunmanby based distillery will take to the cloud based communications app, Zoom to deliver a tutored tasting featuring a selection of winter warmers from future releases and previously unseen cask samples.

The session will be led by Distillery Co-Founder, David Thompson and Whisky Director, Joe Clark, who will be answering questions about the four samples in the tasting pack as well as giving an insight into the distillery's field to bottle process that includes growing 100% of the barley used in the production of Yorkshire's first single malt whisky. 

Mr. Thompson said: "Our first virtual tasting in July sold out very quickly and we had some positive feedback, so we have increased the virtual capacity for the October event that is suitable for whisky tasting experts and novices alike."

The ‘Winter Warmer' tasting packs cost £30 and are available online from or from the distillery shop.

Spirit of Yorkshire was launched in 2016 and is a collaboration between farmer and brewer, Tom Mellor from Wold Top Brewery and business partner, David Thompson. The distillery uses barley and water sourced from the distillery farm and boasts some of the most impressive distilling equipment in the country, including two of the largest Forsyth pot stills operating in the UK outside of Scotland.
