Filey Bay Second Release, which is the next step of the Hunmanby based distillery's journey to its flagship single malt, is said to deliver notes of citrus, vanilla ice cream, caramel, biscuit and honey.

Commenting on the launch, Joe Clark, Spirit of Yorkshire's Whisky Director, said: "It was great to spend the time in the warehouse and discover how well our spirit is maturing. It means that we've been able to launch our Second Release a little earlier than planned, which was fortunate as our First Release has sold quicker than expected!”

He went onto say: “Filey Bay Second Release is a true evolution of our First Release. The 'inputs' are very similar, leading to a house style that is light and fruity - this is something that we've worked hard and purposefully to create. The difference comes from that extra maturation time. There's a little more depth to this Second Release and for me that not only makes it a delicious whisky, but it's also an incredibly exciting indicator as to what's to come in the warehouse." 

Limited to 6,000 bottles, Filey Bay Second Release, is now available directly from the distillery and specialist retailers, for a RRP of £55.00.
