York Gin has a distillery in just outside the City, and the York Gin shop is in the centre of the City of York in a stunning Tudor building at 12 Pavement.
You’ll find all York Gins, other top Yorkshire gins, our gift packs, York Gin branded clothing, kitchenware and accessories on sale in the shop.
We hand-make all our award-winning gins in our small distillery - they are the only gins made in York.
York Gin London Dry
The authentic taste of English gin. Nine botanicals used by English gin makers for over 300 years come together to form a complex and satisfying classic.
Smooth, balanced and perfect in a G&T. Silver winner at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition and two stars at the Great Taste Awards whose judges described it as ‘perfect’.
York Gin Roman Fruit
A juniper-led dry gin with no added sugar, infused with fruits and flora associated with Ancient Rome, with its own Latin motto - ‘Veni, vidi, bibi’- ‘I came, I saw, I drank.’ As well as its Great Taste Awards star, it won a Bronze medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019.
York Gin Outlaw
One of the best gins in the world, York Gin Outlaw is a winner of a Double Gold at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition 2019. This means all the judges in the blind taste test awarded it gold. This Navy Strength 57% gin pushes the boundaries, as did the city's villains, Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin and 'Yorkshire Witch', Mary Bateman. Stronger flavours; higher alcohol - enjoy York Gin Outlaw with tonic, ice … and care.
York Gin Old Tom
York Gin Old Tom is a classic slightly sweetened Victorian-style dry gin. It is our collaboration with one of Yorkshire’s finest restaurants, the Michelin-starred Star Inn, Harome and its chef patron, Andrew Pern. York Gin Old Tom won Best English Old Tom at the World Gin Awards 2020 and a Gold Outstanding at the International Wine & Spirit Competition 2019.
York Gin Grey Lady
York is Europe’s most haunted city and one of our most famous ghosts is the Grey Lady who haunts the city’s Theatre Royal. This is our London Dry gin, distilled with Earl Grey tea and infused with pea flower to create a hauntingly spectral blue-grey hue. It is our homage to the Grey Lady - and all our city’s ghosts.
The inspiration for our gins comes from York’s 2000-year history, and English gin’s hundreds of years of traditions. We have perfected those traditions using botanicals (herbs and spices) available since the 18th century, and the ancient method of using a copper still to make our gins.
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.
We hand-make some of the world’s best gins in our small York distillery. They are the only gins made in the city. We use traditional methods to make our gins in our beautiful copper still. Our range includes York Gin London Dry, York Gin Roman Fruit, York Gin Outlaw, York Gin Old Tom and York Gin Grey Lady.
