York Gin Shop, Pavement - York's best shop 2023

The shop on Pavement is housed in the 16th Century Sir Thomas Herbert's House.
It was crowned York's best shop in 2023 - the third time it has won the title.
Judges loved the amazing service, the quality of the gins and gifts and the ambience of the shop.
The incredible Tudor building is one of the most photographed of York's many landmarks.
Living up to our motto 'History in the Tasting', it is located opposite York's most famous shopping street, the Medieval Shambles and next door to York's most haunted pub, The Golden Fleece.
The shop is open every day.
