To celebrate our three upcoming events in Yorkshire, we have decided to take a look at some of the very best gin’s Yorkshire has to offer! In no particular order, here are our top Yorkshire gins that you need to try!
Masons Yorkshire Gin
Distilled on the edge of the dales, this Yorkshire made gin offers a perfect blend of soft juniper and citrus. The gin is smooth with a peppery finish and its perfect serve is with a premium tonic and orange peel to garnish or even try pink grapefruit and black pepper for something a bit different. We are very excited to have them with us at The Gin Fayre in Wetherby, Leyburn and Malton.
Raisthorpe Dry Gin
Using water from underwater streams of the gypsey springs on the Yorkshire Wolds, Raisthorpe is distilled traditionally by master distillers. Known for its 'mystical' taste, this gin blends juniper with secret botanicals to create the ultimate smooth Yorkshire gin with hints of vanilla and spice. According to folklore, those who drink it are blessed with good fortune. Sounds good to us!
Cooper King Distillery Gin
The only gin distillery in Yorkshire to tailor to each individual botanical with its combination of traditional hot copper-pot and innovative cold vacuum distillation. This juniper-led gin will be balanced with carefully chosen botanicals, many of which will be sourced at the founders own site in the Yorkshire dales. The Gin is set to launch in spring 2018 (just around the corner!) and you can find the Cooper King Distillery Gin at The Gin Fayre: Malton in August.
Sloemotion Sloe Gin
Founded in 2002 in North Yorkshire, Sloemotion uses traditional kitchen recipes to formulate its rich, aromatic, and cherry taste. Whether served as a cocktail or as a warm nip on a cold night, this fruity and sweet gin is the perfect yorkshire sloe gin! Catch up with Sloemotion at The Gin Fayre in Wetherby, Leyburn and Malton!
Slingsby Dry Gin
Slingsby Dry Gin is created with locally sourced botanicals, a pure single grain spirit, and Harrogate aquifer water. Named and inspired by William Slingsby who in 1571 discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water in Harrogate’s Tewit Well, like the man it is named after, Slingsby Gin offers something especially unique and yorkshire. With Refreshing bursts of citrus and the sweet smooth taste of green tea scented with jasmine blossom, this is a gin you have to try!
