'This new release may be inspired by the Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which was made in York for many years, but it’s surprisingly subtle and deliciously dry, the chocolate and juicy orange notes just emerging on the finish. Clever stuff, and sensational in an espresso martini.'

Brilliant! Excellent customer service after a misdelivery (which wasn't the fault of York Gin) and my dad is delighted with his chocolate orange gin. Highly recommended. Also a really cool bottle.

Have been a big fan of Roman Fruits for some time. When I saw the Chocolate Orange special release I absolutely knew I had to order some.
Last night I ordered two bottles of Chocolate Orange gin and two bottles of Batch Number 1. The order was processed and delivered in less than 24 hours. Not only were they delivered in super quick time but they bagged both as packages of one bottle of each in the York Gin branded jute bags with a couple of bottles of tonic water in each. The perfect present which one set was always intended.
Thank you everyone at York Gin for a wonderful shopping experience. I look forward to being able to offer a taste review of your chocolate orange, unfortunately the Batch Number One is going into my drinks cabinet with my 40 year old single malt and will be opened when I reach my 50th.

They were brilliant in still allowing people to sample the gins in a Covid friendly way - I for one will be making a return in the future once lockdown ends.

Big thank you, only placed the on-line order yesterday and received today...I’ve previously received great customer service in your store, so to get great delivery too is fantastic! Well done.

My favourite York gin was out of stock!! My mum (who wanted to get me it for my bday) was advised to contact the distillery, which she did to find out they had two on the shelf. Not only did they let her have one, they even personally delivered it to her. THANK YOU York gin for epic service and epic gin!!!

Between order and delivery I had 2 emails one confirming my order and one letting me know the ETA of the delivery. Top marks for communication and service.

Even in the midst of a pandemic, York gin managed to send my gift promptly and it arrived in about 4 days with signed for delivery Royal Mail.
My boyfriend has been over the moon with his gift, especially the Old Tom gin that he says is amazing.
Thank you also to the staff who replied in a matter of minutes to any message I sent them over Facebook and were really helpful throughout. 5 star service and gin!
