Masons Gin Yorkshire craft gin at mmm…

mmm… and glug… is hosting a free Masons Gin tasting on Friday, 11 May (from 4pm to 7pm) so customers can taste their award-winning Yorkshire-distilled gins.

Masons wanted to create a taste that wasn’t just your run of the mill, off the shelf, generic gin.

Masons Gin dry Yorkshire gin logoRecipe after recipe was rejected in the search for a gin they felt deserved to be called Masons Yorkshire Gin.

Distilled in Masons’ copper alembic stills “Steve’ & “Leftie” in 200 litre batches, each 70cl bottle bears its own handwritten batch and bottle number.

With its traditional slow distillation method, pure Yorkshire water and just the right balance of juniper, citrus elements and secret botanical ratio they created a distinctly unique gin  – the first gin distilled in Yorkshire.

What we will be tasting at mmm… and glug… this Friday

  • Mason’s Yorkshire Tea Gin – 20cl and 70cl bottles
  • Lavender Gin – 20cl and 70cl bottles
  • The original Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin – 20cl and 70cl bottles
  • Limited edition peppered pear gin – 70cl bottle.
