York Gin Jorvik Spring

Heather and lavender from the Yorkshire moors combine with liquorice from Pontefract cakes and ginger from Yorkshire Parkin and the white rose of Yorkshire to produce a medley of flavours from 'God's Own Country'. Add a citrus finish and you have a beautifully balanced and complex gin that says 'Spring is in the air in York'.
