A real treat for chocolate fans, York Gin Chocolate & Orange is made in the city where the Terry's Chocolate Orange was invented and made for decades.
The finest cocoa nibs (dried, roasted and crushed cocoa beans) and fresh oranges combine perfectly with York Gin's classic combination of nine original botanicals.
The result is a beautifully balanced, unsweetened, dry gin with rich and luxurious chocolate and zesty orange notes.
Winner of a Gold medal at the New York International Spirits Competition 2021.
Serve neat over ice, in a G&T with an orange garnish, or in a cocktail - the Sunday Telegraph says it's 'exquisite' in an Espresso Martini.

'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.' - 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
'When you take your first sip, you pick up a rich chocolate flavour. Perfect. Then, a zesty orange taste slides over that. Whole oranges are added to the mix of botanicals, and that flows through nicely in the taste and the aroma. But, although this richness and zesty combo are there, it's far from over-powering. Almost as if one taste calms the other one down, and vice-versa ... Delicious.' - On: Yorkshire Magazine
