Yorkshire Dales Distillery

Colburn, Yorkshire Dales

Family run craft distillery on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales

The people

Tony and Sarah have a passion for all things craft spirit born of a longstanding family love of the industry. They set up the Yorkshire Dales Distillery in a small village on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, near the home they have lived in for most of Tony's army career.

The distillery, which was founded in April 2016, is a true family business, and Tony and Sarah are proud to offer employment opportunities and training for veterans, ex-offenders, young people and the long term unemployed.

The products

Tony and Sarah have developed four distinctive products: three gins, and one vodka. Their signature spirit, 'Purple Ram' London Dry gin, is quadruple distilled and vapour infused with Yorkshire botanicals. 'Desert Ram' - army strength at 50% ABV! - is enlivened by distinctive flavours from North Africa, while 'Yorkshire Berry' London Dry, the most mellow of the three, is infused with classic Yorkshire berries and heather flowers.

The Yorkshire Dales Distillery is a family run craft distillery on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales, set up by Sarah and Tony. Located just outside Richmond, the distillery takes inspiration from the Dales. It uses Yorkshire botanicals, fresh local honey, and the fantastic mineral water fresh from Swaledale. The team is dedicated to producing excellent hand-crafted small-batch spirits, which embody the essence of Yorkshire.

They develop, distil and bottle at the premesis, taking the process from end-to-end. The spirits are produced using traditional techniques and are created in very small batches - sometimes as few as 50 bottles at a time!

To give back to the community they call home, the couple is committed to hiring and training veterans, ex-offenders, young people and the long-term unemployed.
