Introducing our latest release: Filey Bay STR Finish.
Distilled in 2016, this ‘field to bottle’ single malt spent years maturing in bourbon casks before transferring to be ‘finished’ in shaved, toasted and re-charred red wine barriques, which came from sunny Rioja vineyards in Spain.
Light and floral, with layers of summer berries and vanilla ice cream, there’s a sweet and oaky spiciness that hints at a fantastic glass of Spanish red wine.
“Filey Bay STR Finish is totally different from anything we’ve released so far. It takes the citrus and caramel flavours from the bourbon casks and weaves them with the red fruits of the Rioja barriques, creating a complex whisky with spice and depth that’s also light and floral.”
Joe Clark, Whisky Director, Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery
Tasting Notes: Light, floral and fruity with notes of summer berries, vanilla ice cream, orange chocolate and toasted oak.
