Christmas at York Gin
Our special Christmas Gin is inspired by the festive favourite, the Terry’s Chocolate Orange, invented and made for decades in York.
York Gin Chocolate & Orange really is ‘Christmas in a glass’.
Our gift sets of three and six miniature gins are ideal presents – perfect for enjoying over the holidays or on the long nights of January. And we have lots of Secret Santa ideas and stocking fillers.
If you can’t make it to the shop this Christmas, our online Christmas gin gift guide is now open.

History in the Tasting
The inspiration for our gins comes from York’s 2,000-year history, and English gin’s hundreds of years of traditions. We use traditional methods to make our gins. The botanicals (herbs and spices) we use have been available since the 18th Century ‘Gin Craze’.
We celebrate the city’s Roman past with York Gin Roman Fruit, using fruits and flowers associated with Ancient Rome. York Gin Outlaw is inspired by the city’s historic villains, including Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin and ‘Yorkshire Witch’, Mary Bateman. Meanwhile, York Gin Old Tom is a celebration of the Victorian style of gin, and York Gin Grey Lady is a homage to our city’s many ghosts.
York’s centuries of chocolate making inspire York Gin Chocolate & Orange. The Terry’s Chocolate Orange was invented in York in 1932 and made in the company’s chocolate factory until 2005. The York Gin distillery is only two miles from the old factory.
