Gin Tasting Experiences
The hour-long gin tasting experience after hours in the York Gin shop is fun, fascinating and delicious.
Includes two full G&Ts, tasters of all six York Gins, tips on how to drink like a pro and a history of gin.
From 6 November until 23 December, the tastings transform into the 'Sparkly Christmas Gin Tastings.'
A Christmassy welcome cocktail, the red 'The Fairytale of Old York' (gin, Grenadine and lime juice), comes in a glass that's sugar-rimmed and gilded with edible gold leaf.
It really couldn’t be any more festive!

Christmas at York Gin
Our Christmas Gin is inspired by the festive favourite, the Terry's Chocolate Orange, invented and made for decades in York.
York Gin Chocolate & Orange really is 'Christmas in a glass.' And our other five gins make beautiful gifts, especially in a gift box.
We have elegant gift sets of three and six gins - perfect for a gin lover to enjoy over the holidays or on the dark nights of January!
And we have lots of stocking fillers and Secret Santa ideas too. If you can't make it to the shop, visit our online Christmas gin gift guide
