Exploring Yorkshire’s Finest Distillery Tours

Take a look at some of our finest distillery tours in Yorkshire and what they have to offer, each with its own unique story, flavours and experiences.


Cooper King Distillery

Nestled on the outskirts of York, Cooper King Distillery stands as a beacon of sustainability and innovation. Founded by Chris and Abby, their journey began in Australia, where they were inspired by the craft whisky distillers of Tasmania. This inspiration led them back to the UK, where they established Cooper King Distillery with a focus on flavour, authenticity, and sustainability.

Here you can witness Europe’s only Tasmanian copper pot whisky still, a testament to their commitment to craft. Powered by 100% renewable energy, they proudly hold the title of England’s first carbon-negative gin producers. The distillery tour is followed by complimentary tasters in the cosy tasting room and shop.

Whitby Distillery

Whitby Distillery

Whitby Distillery’s story is one of connection to the land. Founded by Jessica and Luke, who traded their desk jobs for a life steeped in nature, the distillery’s award-winning gin is a tribute to the North Yorkshire coastline. With botanicals like heather from the North York Moors, sugar kelp, and local honey, every drop of Whitby Gin is a testament to the region’s unique flavours.

During their one-hour tour, you’ll not only gain insight into the distillery’s beginnings but also their botanical masterclass, the iconic copper still, and experience a tasting journey through their exceptional spirits. Designated drivers won’t be left out either, as they receive a Whitby Gin mini bottle to enjoy at home.
