York Gin London Dry - the original gin from the York Gin Company

York Gin London Dry won two stars at the Great Taste Awards 2019, with judges describing it as 'perfect'. It also won Silver at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019 and Silver at the Spirits Business Gin Masters 2018.

York Gin London Dry has nine botanicals - juniper, coriander, cinnamon, orris root, angelica, cardamom, black pepper, lemon peel and grains of paradise.

All would have been available on the spice route in the 18th century.

York Gin London Dry is all about the perfect balance of flavours - it is perfect in  G&T or neat over ice.

Tasting notes

ABV:         42.5

NOSE:-     Harmonious, warm, hints of floral top notes

PALATE:-   Dry, juniper led, balanced by floral notes and warm cardamom. A gentle citrus edge complemented by spiciness of coriander.

FINISH:-     An earthy dryness of angelica, balanced with peppery tones.

AFTERTASTE:-    A complex and smooth finish, no one tone takes precedent.

Perfect Serve

G&T: We recommend a classic lemon peel and a light, quality tonic, and a good quality solid glass.

Other options are citrus / sour notes - lime or grapefruit or even thyme.

Dry / savoury or sour complement York Gin best. 

Also just a simple block of ice and a few juniper berries or peppercorns.

Expert review

York Gin featured on the prestigious London Gin Club’s summer tasting menu 2018. 

‘This is a most satisfying dry gin – an excellent sipping gin, easy drinking on ice it also makes a great gin and tonic which we garnish with a rhubarb slice.

‘So raise your glass to Rutterkin, the black cat and swaggering gallant who adorns the bottles of York Gin. We most wholeheartedly welcome him onto our shelves and onto our latest tasting menus at the London Gin Club.’

We’re particularly chuffed that the York Gin cat Rutterkin gets a mention. We think you’ll be seeing more of him soon.
