Say hello to Slingsby’s new ad­di­tion

Lancashire Life - - FOOD & DRINK -


Spirit of Har­ro­gate have gone and done it again! They have de­vel­oped a de­li­cious new fla­vor of Gin to add to their grow­ing spir­its range, this time in the form of Goose­berry. Sim­i­larly, to their fa­mous York­shire Rhubarb Gin, the new ad­di­tion be­gan life as a de­vel­op­ment gin which was made avail­able to their cus­tomers to taste in store. Due to its pop­u­lar­ity and pos­i­tive feed­back – the Goose­berry Gin was bot­tled and is now avail­able to buy!

Slingsby Goose­berry Gin is the sec­ond fruit gin the brand has launched and fol­lows in the foot­steps of their hugely pop­u­lar York­shire Rhubarb Gin. Like all their gins, it uses the same botan­i­cal

mix and clas­sic citrus base of the Slingsby London Dry Gin, how­ever the ad­di­tion of fresh York­shire goose­ber­ries brings an un­miss­able tangy sharp­ness tem­pered with a sweet and fruity fin­ish.

The idea to cre­ate a Goose­berry Gin for taste test­ing came from Slingsby’s co-founders Mar­cus Black and Mike Carthy. Slingsby were Of­fi­cial Sup­pli­ers to the Bri­tish & Ir­ish Li­ons for their 2017 tour of New Zealand and Mike and Mar­cus were lucky enough to visit New Zealand to cheer on the team. Whilst they were there, they took a lik­ing to its New Zealand Sauvi­gnon which is renowned for its goose­berry style fin­ish on the pal­let, giv­ing them the in­spi­ra­tion for the next prod­uct.
