Being a Yorkshire based gin retailer with an online presence we always hoped we would be of interest to Yorkshire gin distillers. But in the last few months, we have been (happily) inundated with new gins from our humble region. So we thought we would take a look at a few of the ones we are currently stocking.
What’s more Yorkshire than Rhubarb Gin?
We start with Slingsby, who are based in Harrogate. They are incredibly proud of their Yorkshire roots, using Harrogate natural spring water from the Tewit Well since 1571. The picturesque Yorkshire town is famous as a place to relax, indulge and socialise, and their gin tries to embody this spirit.
The perfectly Yorkshire Rhubarb Gin was originally created as a small one-off product but has become so popular that it is now a permanent feature. It is best served with premium elderflower tonic over ice with raspberries to garnish.
Masons – The home of Yorkshire Gin
Masons Yorkshire Gin was created by husband and wife duo Karl & Cathy Mason. As pure gin enthusiasts without any prior knowledge of the industry, they set out to produce a drink that stood out from the crowd. They achieved this in 2013, launching Masons on International Gin Day. Then, in 2015, to highlight their love of the region, they added to the core range Lavender Gin and a Tea Edition (using Yorkshire Tea of course!).
Divine Yorkshire Gin
Gin Divine is produced in Holmfirth, famous for Last of The Summer Wine – the epitome of Yorkshire life! The base gin is created around a crisp, dry and zesty flavour making it a premium and flavoursome gin. Divine has recently expanded by added a vibrant and all natural Raspberry Gin to the core collection.
If you haven’t tried Gin Divine yet we recommend you do. It is very popular with our customers and is gaining attention and endorsement rapidly through Yorkshire and beyond – only last week Eorl Crabtree called into our shop for a bottle!
Whittaker’s – Distilled by Jezebel!
The Whittaker’s distillery is an old agricultural building on the family farm in Nidderdale. It houses their home-made stills, which are called Jezebel and Jezebel 2 (named after daughters Jessica and Isabella). In their range, they have four excellent Yorkshire Gins; the Original, Pink Particular, Navy Strength (our favourite), and Clearly Sloe.
Jacqson Yorkshire Gin
Another very local gin to us is Jacqson Gin. It is produced by a mother and son duo and features locally grown rhubarb and liquorice combined with other specially selected botanicals. We think the flavour is stunning and unique.
