You’ll LOVE Masons English Lavender Gin!
Masons Yorkshire Gin are extremely proud of their northern heritage. “Yorkshire is a huge part of us. It feeds our determination to create exceptional gin. It’s our warmth and our passion. It’s our home”. We think their bottles look amazing, and their English Lavender Gin is particularly perfect for this time of year!
Karl and Cathy Mason always had an unwavering belief that, when it came to gin, doing things the right way without compromise would lead to the very best outcome. And thus, on World Gin Day in 2013, Yorkshire’s first gin, Masons of Yorkshire, was born.
The Masons range of gins have won some of the most prestigious awards worldwide. History – both near and far played a significant role in the development of Yorkshire’s first gin and the driving force was simply a passion for exceptional tasting gin and doing things properly.
Working with a distilling expert – and friend – Karl and Cathy sought to absorb as much knowledge about distillation as possible before creating their own. Setting this as their benchmark, Masons has quickly expanded its range to include Tea Edition (distilled with Yorkshire Tea, of course), English Lavender, Pear & Pink Peppercorn, Orange & Lime Leaf, Raspberry, and more recently Pink Grapefruit & Cucumber.
Masons was born of quality. Every batch of Masons gin produced has a tasting panel who are responsible for ensuring the quality never waivers (sounds like a great job!).
Masons Gin is made with love and care. They have no gimmicks, no shortcuts, no compromises!
