Yorkshire distillery aiming to raise £500k to fund new site

A Yorkshire-based distillery is launching a community project with the aim of raising £500,000 towards the cost of its new eco-build distillery.

Whitby Distillery says that its new community project, the Founders Club, is an “essential part” of its new project.

Through this project, the Whitby Gin producer is aiming to raise £500,000 towards its new £1.5 million distillery.

“Whilst some of the build cost of the distillery will come from more traditional sources, we are looking to create a Whitby Distillery community, who will share in our whole exciting journey,” said Luke Pentith, co-founder of Whitby Distillery.

“We hope this community will play a crucial role in helping our dream to become a reality, whilst enjoying a whole range of benefits which will appeal to gin drinkers across the country, including shaping the taste of our future gins.

“Our aim is to raise £500,000, which would enable us to complete the distillery and the visitor centre in good time next year.

“We have already floated the idea of a Founders Club to our friends and supporters and it has been received really well. Now it’s time to launch it to a wider audience in the UK.

“Club members will become part of Whitby’s story, helping to bring new business to the area and creating jobs for local people and putting spirit back.

“New ideas and adventures have always been launched along this rugged coast and this is an amazing opportunity to be part of one of them.”

Work is slated to begin on the new site in January.
