Drinks all round! Fairfax Distillery to sponsor the Festival's Cocktail Bar

Big name sponsors are still coming thick & fast to support Wetherby Beer Festival, and we're absolutely delighted to welcome Colton's very own Fairfax Distillery as our official Cocktail Bar sponsors!

A new addition to the Festival's drinks offering, the Fairfax Distillery Cocktail Bar will offer a range of delicious cocktails using Fairfax's exclusive wide range of carefully crafted gins, rums and vodkas.

Run by award-winning Kelly and Ashley McCarthy, Fairfax Distillery is a home grown business that is going from strength to strength from their base at Ye Old Sun Inn in Colton, near York. Sought after chef Ashley has also made a name for himself with his chocolate work and sculptures, appearing on many TV programmes over the last few years. Kelly also has an entrepreneurial spirit - literally - and ventured into the art of Spirit Distilling, developing the ‘Fairfax Distillery’ brand in 2020. They decided to bring all the arms of the business together under one big umbrella and use the Sun Inn as the HQ for Fairfax Distillers and Chocolatiers.

You can find out more at Shop - Fairfax Distillery, as well as the mouth-watering range of chocolate goodies and gift sets, perfect for the fast approaching Mother's Day or Easter.
