Slingsby Rhubarb Gin
Slingsby’s London Dry Gin was launched in 2015 by the Spirit of Harrogate. The company started producing award-winning gins and vodka, and now offer a whole range of spirits, as well as having their own flagship store and gin experience in Harrogate!
Since William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water, people have visited the picturesque Yorkshire town. Inspired by this story, founders Marcus Black and Mike Carthy embarked on an adventure and Slingsby Gin has captured the ‘Spirit of Harrogate’.
To create their amazing gin, the team made sure the recipe was perfect! They had 18 different variants of the gin and 15 months of development!
The Rhubarb is grown in Wakefield, the heart of the Yorkshire ‘Rhubarb Triangle’ and transported straight to us in order to preserve freshness. The rhubarb is blended with water being mixed with spirit to pull the maximum flavour as possible. It is then transferred to the Spirit of Harrogate rhubarb still, where it is used to create the rhubarb distillate that is added to the gin.
Taste: Initial sweetness of rhubarb and raspberry followed by the bitter tang of the pink grapefruit citrus base. A tart rhubarb finish rounds of the drink leaving and unforgettable flavour on the palate.
Recommended serve: Best enjoyed over ice with premium tonic water, and garnished with fresh raspberries.
70cl / 40% Vol.
Delivery may take 5-7 working days.
