Step inside the world of Slingsby | Slingsby Gin

by Northern Life

SlingsbyOne of the newest additions to the North’s ever-growing food and drink scene is the Harrogate born Slingsby Artisan Gin – a small batch produced, ultrapremium, London Dry Gin.

Slingsby Gin was launched last autumn drawing itsinspiration from William Slingsby, who, in 1571, discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from the Tewit Well in Harrogate. Slingsby did things differently, thought differently and had a vision that others considered to be extraordinary or even, a little odd.

Chosen with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate in mind, Slingsby Gin’s key ingredients include Yorkshire rhubarb and Green and Jasmine Tea from Taylors of Harrogate. Twelve of Slingsby’s 24 botanicals, including Sweet Cicely, Primrose and Thyme; have been grown in Harrogate’s own Rudding Park Hotel’s kitchen garden and the spring water is sourced from the spa town’s world famous aquifer.

Bottled in a hand-finished bespoke blue glass bottle inspired by a 19th century chemist shop bottle found in a Harrogate antique shop, Slingsby have sought to provide each and every customer with the Spirit of Harrogate in a bottle.

A trip to Harrogate will see you stumble upon the Spirit of Harrogate, the home of Slingsby Gin, located on Montpellier Parade.

The aptly named Spirit of Harrogate is a must for all gin lovers. Visitors can book a private Slingsby Gin Experience, which includes canapés and speciallydeveloped Slingsby signature cocktails, created by Spirit of Harrogate’s handpicked team.

Marcus Black, Co-founder & Managing Director, explained: “For hundreds of years, people have visited our picturesque Yorkshire spa town to restore the body, mind and soul.

“Our home, the Spirit of Harrogate, certainly reflects this, and we invite everybody to come and learn about the fascinating world of Slingsby Gin. If aprivate session isn’t for you, visitors can pop into our shop to simply relax, socialise and sample our range of flavoured gins and over 30 tonics, and of course treat themselves to a bottle of Slingsby Gin.”
