York Gin tastings are a fascinating, fun and delicious introduction to gin.
You’ll learn lots, laugh lots – and will develop an appreciation for all the gins you drink in the future too.
Learn about York Gin's history, the botanicals, the centuries-old traditional methods we use, and the stories and myths behind each gin. It’s a fascinating story!
Our experts will then teach you how to taste gin like a professional, and talk you through the flavour profiles of every gin in the range. This will transform your enjoyment of gin in the future as you learn the experts’ tips and tricks.
