The Gintern Visits Masons Gin!
Masons Yorkshire Gin launched on International Gin Day in 2013 and has kept on growing ever since. I visited their new distillery and was told it is considerably bigger than their last! It was lovely to see the miniature bottles being filled and sealed, and I was extra excited to learn that they were the ILoveGin box bottles. There certainly is a lot of care and hard work that goes into producing all of these beauties.
Masons have a new still called Kate, and she now is running along with Steve and Leftie (the copper pot stills). I was shown some of their botanicals too, which smelt wonderful! The key botanicals that stand out to me in Masons Original Gin are fresh lime, orange rind, fennel and bay leaf.
A Gintern visit can’t be completed without trying some gin! I was very happy to learn about the Limited Edition gins that Masons sell. Not only did I sample an Apple gin (made from apples out of Assistant Distiller Steve’s orchard), but their Peppered Pear edition is particularly special.
As I was in Yorkshire and love a brew, I also couldn’t leave without trying their famous Tea Edition gin! The familiar and comforting notes of Yorkshire tea is a surprising ingredient, but very tasty. I am particularly excited to conjure up some cocktail recipes with this one…
Thank you so much to Mason’s for giving me the guided tour of their distillery and for the G&T’s!
