Yorkshire Gin Map - 1st Edition
(First released on 19th October 2017. The new and updated map can be found here)
Welcome to the Yorkshire Gin Map - 1st Edition
The Yorkshire gin scene is thriving, with 15+ companies either selling or soon to start producing the delicious juniper-led spirit. To promote this fine Yorkshire spirit and celebrate International Gin & Tonic Day (19th October) we’ve put together a gin map to help you locate your favourite, and to encourage you to explore what the region has on offer!
Gin making is a fascinating process. The 15 brands shown are using a broad range of techniques, from macerating foraged botanicals with spirit at Sloe Motion, to hot distillation at Rare Bird and Whittakers, through to cold vacuum distillation at JacqSon. Every approach has its advantages, and here at Cooper King Distillery we are the first distillery in Yorkshire to combine both innovative cold vacuum distillation with traditional hot copper-pot distillation, in a process tailored to suit each individual botanical.
The Yorkshire Gin Map will evolve as the scene develops. Since publication we’ve learnt of many other gins, including Divine Gin in Holmfirth and the Steam Brewery in Haworth; we’ll be sure to add these to the next edition of the gin map. If we’ve missed any please get in touch and let us know.
