Whittaker’s Distillery launch first Single Malt Whisky

Whittaker’s Distillery have announced the launch date of their much anticipated First Release English Single Malt Whisky

Available on Yorkshire Day, 1st August 2024, with pre orders being taken now, the new spirit will be the first ever Yorkshire Dales Whisky.

Created by Toby and Jane Whittaker and their team, who also own and run the award-winning Whittaker’s Gin brand, the new release has been five years in the making and has been carefully crafted to create the ultimate whisky, with true authenticity and provenance. 

Owner Toby said: “I personally like the idea of getting involved in something that’s in its infancy, just as we did with the gin.  English whisky is very much a growing market and Jane and I feel very privileged to be involved right from the beginning.

“We’ve worked hard to ensure that this is a true Yorkshire product with real provenance and quality at its heart and are incredibly proud of the result. Yorkshire is the best place for growing superb quality barley and we have enlisted the help of our family who farm at Ferrensby to grow our barley, which is then malted at Fawcett’s in Castleford, and produced and matured at our family home Harewell House Farm in in the Dales”.  

Pre orders for the First Release Cask Strength Double Bourbon Cask-Aged English Single Malt Whisky are available now at whittakerswhisky.com.
