York Gin Rhubarb celebrates this quintessentially English flavour - delightfully sweet and fruity tanginess. This is a truly excellent rhubarb gin!
Fresh Yorkshire rhubarb combines beautifully with seven classic botanicals including juniper, grains of paradise and angelica to create complexity, depth and balance. The natural sugar syrup added after distillation provides just the right level of sweetness.
We've taken as our inspiration Yorkshire's famous Rhubarb Triangle, an area of seven square miles in West Yorkshire (only a few miles from our ancient city) where forced rhubarb is picked by candlelight to protect the delicate stems. Deprived of sunlight, it develops an extra sweetness of taste and a deeper pink hue.
This rhubarb gin is a superb example of this popular category of gin. It makes a delightful G&T with either elderflower tonic or premium light tonic. Add fresh raspberries, an orange slice or even fresh rhubarb for your garnish. Ginger ale or ginger beer also make ideal mixers, creating a classic combination of flavours.
