British Glass member Allied Glass have crafted the bottle for Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky.
Based in the coastal village of Hunmanby in North Yorkshire, whisky distillery Spirit of Yorkshire have launched Filey Bay, inspired by the bay of the same name which is in view of the distillery.
The tall and elegant bottle has been made out of extra white flint glass and is designed to reflect the premium value of the spirit with heavy embossing of the sea and a silhouette of a gannet.
Smooth sections of the bottle made the design challenging to manufacture due to the different cooling behaviours in the separate areas.
Co-Founder of Spirit of Yorkshire David Thompson said:
“Filey Bay is unique. Not only is it Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, but we are one of only a handful of whisky makers in the UK that have a full field to bottle process.
“Our production allows us to create two different spirit styles, using a pot and column still configuration to create a flavour profile that is unlike any other malt whisky.
“Even our bottle is bespoke, bringing together our land and coast, and our mascot, the gannet. Every bottle of Filey Bay represents the passion and dedication of everyone involved.
“You only get to release the county’s first whisky once and we’re thrilled to now share it with customers old and new.”
Nolan Kane, Allied’s New Business Development Manager, said:
“This beautiful new bottle was crafted by a group of creative people all working towards the same goal of perfection.
“The bespoke bottle is therefore a wonderful expression of the Filey Bay brand’s dedication to quality.”
