England's Filey Bay whiskies coming to US

English spirits maker the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery is launching its whisky into the US.

Working with distributor ImpEx Beverages, Spirit of Yorkshire will be bringing its Filey Bay Flagship (its first widely available bottling), Filey Bay STR Finish (at a special ABV of 48%), and an exclusive Filey Bay Single Cask bottling to the on- and off-trades in 48 states.

The US will be the brand's sixth export market, with launches already in Italy, Germany and Poland and more markets planned for 2022.

Produced in Hunmanby, North Yorkshire, Filey Bay single malt whisky is made with 100 per cent homegrown barley from the Spirit of Yorkshire Distillery's farm.

David Thompson, co-founder of Spirit of Yorkshire, said: "This is a hugely significant step for us as a brand, as America is a significant market for us and something we've been working towards for a long time. It's a privilege to be working with ImpEx Beverages as our importer."

Sam Filmus, president of ImpEx Beverages, said: "We are extremely excited to launch Filey Bay here in the US. The people and the story behind Spirit of Yorkshire very much align with ImpEx Beverages' philosophies."
