York Gin Company

About us

Romans and Vikings, medieval walls, an extraordinary gothic Minster, the world famous Shambles, Richard III, Guy Fawkes and Dick Turpin, railways, chocolate and horse racing.
The ancient city seems to have it all, yet until now, it’s been missing a magic ingredient - a gin of its own.
Over the past two years, five York friends worked to put this right, developing a plan hatched in that most appropriate of places, and home of so many great ideas, the pub.

All five got together and formed the York Gin Company - an entirely self-funded start-up. So now, York Gin is hand-made in the York Gin Company’s distillery in the city - the very first gin from York. They use traditional
methods to make their classic dry gin in their beautiful copper still named Ebor, after the Roman name for York, Eboracum.

York Gin is exceptionally smooth, meaning it can be sipped neat over ice as well as being ideal for classic G&Ts and cocktails. Traditionally gin makers retain a lot of secrecy about the exact botanicals. But York Gin are happy to tell share that their dry gin includes black pepper, cardamom and grains of paradise, as well as a combination of classic botanicals including angelica and orris root. Plus, of course, filtered Yorkshire water.

York Gin celebrates the city’s long history and association with cats on its label - with a hand-drawn picture of the walls and a black cat. The iconic font is a revival of 17th Century ‘Fell Fonts’ - widely used in print at the time of the 18th Century Gin Craze. There’s a nod to York’s medieval past in the label, yet a bottle of York Gin also feels perfectly contemporary with its strong square, weighty design.
You can buy York Gin in three different bottles to take home, or try York Gin in many of York’s wonderful pubs, bars, restaurants and hotels.
