Gin Tastings in York
The hour-long tastings are held every Friday and Saturday evening in the beautiful York Gin shop opposite the famous Shambles.
Enjoy two full G&Ts, taste the full range, get top tasting tips and learn about gin's incredible history. As well as gin tastings in the city of York, there are other wonderful gin experiences to try. They really are some of the best things to do in York for gin lovers.
Hen & stag parties and other larger groupsWhile the tastings are fun, they are also educational and are not designed for boisterous groups.
If you're looking for a more informal activity for you and your friends, we can definitely arrange this.

Gin Tastings in the York Gin Shop
Every Friday & Saturday at 6.30pm - £30 per person
Our gin tastings are hosted in our beautiful city centre shop opposite the famous Shambles from 6:30pm every Friday and Saturday.
You'll enjoy a full G&T on arrival (our gold award-winning London Dry and Fever-Tree Light tonic).
This is followed by generous tasters of each of our other five gins, as our experts take you through each in turn.
You'll pick up tasting tips, learn about the history of gin and discover gin's myths and legends.
At the end, you’ll choose your favourite gin for another full G&T to round off the evening.
The session lasts around an hour.

The whole evening was enjoyable and relaxed and we would highly recommend it.
I would recommend to anyone not only the gin but the tasting experience too. York Gin have some very loyal customers in us now.
We had a tasting after closing time as part of my fathers 70th trip to York. Great fun and very informative.
