York Gin Roman Fruit: An infused gin made with fruits inspired by the Roman era.
A quick word about gin
York Gin is a distilled dry gin - the two things you need to create a dry gin are: alcohol and juniper.
Beyond those two ingredients, it's up to the distiller to choose other botanicals in the process.
Some gins bring out the taste of peppercorn, others the flavour of lemon, cucumber or cardamom.
There are different methods to make gin. York Gin is a London Dry Gin - this is a traditional method which means we add no flavours or botanicals after the distillation process.
The York Gin story
With York Gin, we wanted to create a classic, smooth craft dry gin that doesn’t overpower your tastebuds with a particular botanical flavour, a gin that could have been around for centuries.
We compared and contrasted the gins we created in our copper two-litre alembic column recipe still with over 100 top gins.
After months of experimenting, honing, tasting, discussing and more tasting we perfected our classic recipe that is both smooth and balanced.
Traditionally, gin makers retain some secrecy about the exact ingredients. But we can tell you that our dry gin includes black pepper, cardamom and grains of paradise, as well as a combination of classic botanicals including angelica and orris root.
We love York and we hope you agree the design of our labels and bottles embodies some of the things that make York so special.
