Search is on for best Yorkshire picnic spot to mark launch of York G&T cans on World Gin Day
The search is on for Yorkshire's favourite picnic spot - choose yours and you could win a luxury York Gin & Tonic hamper.
We've partnered with Welcome to Yorkshire to find the county's best places to enjoy a picnic.
We're celebrating the official launch of York Gin & Tonic cans on World Gin Day (Saturday 12 June).
The competition on the Welcome to Yorkshire Facebook page runs from 12 to 30 June. We hope you'll enter!
The first prize is a York Gin & Tonic picnic hamper with eight cans, some tea towels glasses and other treats. Runners up will win a four pack of York Gin G&Ts in a can.
The new 250ml cans include a classic G&T made with York Gin London Dry paired with a bespoke light premium tonic, and a 'Berry Fizz' G&T with natural fruit flavours added. They're both 6.5%ABV.
Winners will be chosen at random during the first week of July.
York Gin co-founder, Emma Godivala said: ‘Yorkshire is the best place in the world for a picnic - fact.
‘We have The Dales, the Yorkshire coast, our fabulous city parks - and there are beautiful areas of unspoiled beauty almost everywhere you turn. So we want to know where you love to have a picnic. Imagine how much better it would taste with a can of York Gin & Tonic!'
The cans are available from yorkgin.com and the York Gin shop as well as wine merchants House of Townend and Field & Fawcett, online at Master of Malt, York’s House of Trembling Madness, Malton’s McMillans, Tate Smith and a rapidly growing number of retailers and wholesalers.
More about York Gin’s G&Ts in a can
York Gin have spent several months developing their classic G&T and ‘Berry Fizz’ G&T.
Both use multiple award-winning York Gin London Dry as their base - the Great Taste Awards 2019 describe York Gin’s original gin as ‘perfect’. It won Gold at the New York International Spirits Competition 2020.
The gin is mixed with a bespoke premium light tonic developed especially for the new 6.5% drinks. The Berry Fizz also has added natural fruit flavours.
This is York Gin’s first foray into the ready to drink market, having already made its reputation making some of the world's best gins.
