York Gin: the who, the what and the why
York Gin is a small independent distiller of some of the world’s finest gins. It is York's only distillery.
The company began as an idea cooked up in one of York’s finest independent pubs, The Swan. A group of friends (and the landlord) decided it was time for the city to have its own gin company.
