The distillery has been built on Ellers Farm, located at Stamford Bridge near York, with water being sourced from the ground beneath it.

Ellers Farm is also planting twenty acres of orchard on the farm to supply apples for the vodka's fute production and which will further offset carbon emissions.

A visitor's centre will also be constructed on site. Once completed, the distillery will host tours-welcoming people from near and far.

The unique production process means that the vodka is tasted every 20 minutes as it evolves from British apples, balanced with a touch of potato spirit until it develops into a crisp, clean, and exceptionally smooth vodka at 40% ABV.

Dutch Barn is made under the supervision of Master Distiller Jamie Baggot who said:“The process of making Dutch Barn has been such a great challenge, as I had to ensure that it tastes great, yet keeps the production as sustainable as possible.
