The Kipperman is coming to Filey Distillery as part of May’s Filey Literature Festival. Over the weekend of 13/14 May fishing historian Mike Smylie will smoke kippers on his mobile kipper house.
It is the first time kippers have been smoked on the site for a century. Mike will be giving a talk at 2pm on Sunday 14 May and will be selling kippers. There will also be an exhibition of the herring industry within the distillery building.
The talk is a free event and there will be a pop-up bar operated by the site’s current occupiers, Filey Distillery. The story appeared in the Yorkshire Post this week.
