About the York Gin distillery

The York Gin Distillery is the only distillery within York’s city limits.

Located in two buildings on the Acaster Estate, our York distillery is just a couple of miles past the Archbishop of York’s Palace in Bishopthope – a 15-minute drive from the city centre.

Run on 100% green electricity, this micro distillery makes York Gin’s range of six gins in batches of just 300 litres.

The gin is distilled in our beautiful alembic copper still, Ebor. All stills need a name by law. This name is a shortened version of Eboracum, the Roman name for York.

All the bottling, labelling and packing is also carried out at the York Gin distillery.



The distillery is run on sustainable principles, so the 100% green energy that powers it is even more efficient because the still uses electricity rather than gas.

Gas-powered stills take longer to warm up, and therefore use more power than the York Gin still.

We charge our emission-free electric van at the distillery too.

All our products and packaging are 100% plastic free.

And we recycle 100% of our cardboard, glass and plastic waste.

2021 will see us make significant strides in our aim to become even more sustainable.

Visits, tastings and tours

Visits, tastings and tours are currently suspended because of Covid.

Once things are back to normal, we will be happy to welcome individual customers or small groups to come on informal visits.

We will also have more organised tastings and tours during the summer. But for now, we are erring on the side of caution.
