David Thompson

David holds an HND in Agricultural Merchanting for Nottingham University.

With extensive experience in agricultural sales and crop science, and in particular malting barley crop husbandry, David has 15 years in marketing before applying a career's worth of knowledge to setting up and running Yorkshire's first single malt whisky distillery.

Together with Tom Mellor, they are making Yorkshire’s first single malt whisky, from field to bottle. All underpinned by an ethos that is brought to life in all aspects of their business, from the stills to their approach to whisky in the first place, and the kind of talent they look to employ.
