Expert reviews

York Gin Old Tom

'Arguably one of the best gins in the world regardless of genre - York Old Tom is a must try, must taste, must have offering. It's an unmissable gin in a sea of gin. It's so good there's not enough superlatives to do it justice. White Alba rose along with bronze fennel, star anise, angelica and pink peppercorns complete a complex syrup that really comes through to taste. An absolute stunner in a Martinez.'
- Spirits Kiosk

'One of the best Old Tom's out there. You can tell chefs have been involved in weaving the flavours together. The fennel adds a light touch of spice, while the added sweetness makes all of the flavours linger beautifully on the finish.'
- Olivier Ward, Editor, Spirits Beacon

'A delightfully elegant and complex nose of juniper, spice, and flower blossom. On the palate, juniper is at the fore, before a exceptionally well-integrated liquorice sweetness that lingers on the finish and leaves you wanting another sip.'
- International Wine & Spirit Competition

York Gin London Dry

'Juniper dominates in this smooth spirit — supported with aromatic green cardamon and warming cinnamon — and testers felt it would make an excellent dry martini.'
- Good Housekeeping

'This is a most satisfying dry gin – an excellent sipping gin, easy drinking on ice it also makes a great gin and tonic.'
- London Gin Club

'The kind of classic gin you can rely on for a satisfyingly crisp G&T. Dry, juniper led profile balanced by floral notes and warm cardamom. There's a gentle citrus edge complemented by spiciness of coriander on the finish. A lovely classic gin. Pair it with Indian tonic and a lemon peel.'
- Spirits Kiosk

'Bold but beautiful.'
- International Wine & Spirit Competition

‘A classically styled London Dry gin with attractive floral tones, nutty angelica, subdued citrus and light spice.’
Difford’s Guide

- Great Taste Awards

‘This gin will play perfectly when creating a new cocktail menu.’
- Gin Magazine

York Gin Outlaw Navy Strength

'Fiery and bold, the Outlaw really carries its intensity through in the glass. Pair it with grapefruit and thyme in a dual garnish that helps elevate the gin's savoury notes best in a G&T.' - Spirits Kiosk

‘Struck us with its smoothness. Almost creamy, the gin has a particularly rounded feel.’
- The Independent

'This would make a lovely choice for autumnal or winter drinks.’
- Gin Magazine

'Bold, aromatic spice notes throughout: good initial flavours, before a long finish. Good mixing potential.’
- International Wine & Spirit Competition

York Gin Chocolate & Orange

'This new release may be inspired by the Terry’s Chocolate Orange, which was made in York for many years, but it’s surprisingly subtle and deliciously dry, the chocolate and juicy orange notes just emerging on the finish. Clever stuff, and sensational in an espresso martini.’
- Susy Atkins, Sunday Telegraph

'Cocoa nibs and fresh oranges make up this one, and you're right – it will make a superb Espresso Martini.’
- Master of Malt

York Gin Roman Fruit

‘An example of a brand who have got it spot on and delivered it to stunning effect. This is a must have for any gin collection!’
- The Gin Shelf

'It might be deep red in colour but tastes like gin first and foremost. The infusion has added layers to the underlying gin and given it huge complexity, but the juniper is clear. It's dry as a bone too - making it a perfect to use with tonic.’
- Olivier Ward, Editor, Spirits Beacon

'The aroma is fruity and floral with a sweet fruity taste to match. This is another contemporary gin that will please those who like their gin juniper-lite. I served it with a Mediterranean tonic, lemon zest twist and fresh raspberry.’
- For The Love of Gin

York Gin Rhubarb

Only launched in spring 2023 so we don't yet have any reviews. It has immediately become a best-seller in our shop and online.

York Gin Mediterranean Lemon

'York Gin can always be relied on for charactful and flavoursome gins with a traditional core, and this gin stays true to form. It's a dry, crisp and refreshing gin with lovely prominence of Mediterranean lemons alongside classic botanicals, without being sweet or overpoweringly lemony.'
Tasting Notes: Light, balanced and zesty, with earthy juniper.
Serving Suggestion / Garnish: With Tonic Water and a garnish of Lemon, or in a French 75 or White Lady.
- The Gin Guide

'A gin with flavours and aromas of rosemary, lemon and herbs on nose and palate with a smooth balanced finish.'
- London Spirits Competition
