About
Home of Slingsby Gin, you are welcome to sample and purchase our products. Our knowledgeable, friendly team will be happy to assist and answer any questions you may have. We also have a few gins, not yet launched, ready for you to taste. We also run gin experiences including our Spirit of Gin session where you will discover the fascinating history of gin, right back through the original styles of gin, to how gin has developed today. Includes 4 Gin and Tonics, plus samples. Our newly launched Master Distiller experience includes sampling different flavour profiles and choosing your favourite. We then provide you with a base receipe, which you may adapt, to create your very own bespoke bottle of gin to take home. The session finishes with G&Ts and information on how to create your perfect serve. Open sessions run Thursday - Sunday and private bookings available. We look forward to welcoming you to the Spirit of Harrogate soon.

This is something a little bit different and for that reason it is a very good thing.

Things to like: Intimate setting, generous drinks, complimentary nibbles, interesting talk from the team about the origins of gin and the distillation process.

Things that could be better: There is a LOT of listening so if you are going with a group of friends for a social occasion you might leave feeling you have not had much chance to catch up with each other, I think a better balance might be 50% listening time, rather than the 80% or so it currently seems. Also, some interactive visual aids / AV stuff might just help to break it up a little.

Overall, it is a good experience that could be made great with a few minor tweaks

Alex’s amazing knowledge and enthusiasm was above and beyond what we expected, ably assisted by George.
We were very surprised that we could try as many gins as we liked, all made expertly by the team with fever tree mixers.
The room was upstairs and very pleasantly appointed with perhaps a dozen people - just right.
Alex told us the history of gin and described the different fins that Slingsby produced.
We went for the 3.30 experience and left at about5.45 giving us the right amount of time to get a few more “refreshments” around town before our precooked meal at 8.00.
We were back the next morning to get. A few bottles for ourselves and as Christmas presents.
A very good way to spend a Saturday afternoon.

Had the best time last night at the Slingsby Spirit of Gin experience in Harrogate. The gins were amazing and the information given was really interesting. Our host was George and he made the night brilliant by being so funny and was such a lovely guy. Thanks George - we really enjoyed it and made some brilliant memories in Harrogate.
Highly recommend this gin tasting experience.

Fabulous two hours. Learnt so much more about gin than just mixing with Tonic. Created our own different gins which are totally unique to my wife and I.
Great presentation, great service , would highly recommend.

Had a fantastic afternoon at the gin experience. Josh was so informative about the history of gin. Meanwhile Ben filled up your glasses in a way that you didn't really notice you had a different drink. Very enjoyable, everyone was involved. Best way to spend an afternoon.

Had a lovely evening at the Master Distiller experience with a group of friends. Great hosting, making it interesting and fun. We learned loads about gin, drank a fair amount of it, and came away with our own bottle. Couldn’t be better!

Fantastic girls afternoon out to celebrate a special birthday. Alex and George are the perfect hosts with just the right amount of professionalism but sufficiently relaxed so that anyone could enjoy this!

Good fun, held everyone's attention and most importantly, they are very generous with their measures!!

Nothing is too much trouble - would highly recommend!

We had an amazing experience at the spirit of gin! Loved the information and the layout with breaks to have drinks, the added snacks were a great bonus! Was lovely to be able to choose the mixers to add to the gins, with lovely selection of gins to choose from. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

We came to your master distillery gin making having already previously attended your gin tasting experience twice over the past few years.
It more than fulfilled our expectations!! ..... We had booked for four of us and essentially had a private session as no others were booked on it! Felt very exclusive, but relaxed and welcoming atmosphere. Alex (who was the presenter at our first gin experience back in 2018) was nothing short of fantastic.... Superb knowledge of gin and gave us great advise and pointers to select the botanicals and flavours suited to all our own individual gin flavour preferences. His unique, quirky character and humor added to the overall experience and the bar assistant was very attentive and ensured we had a constant supply of our favourite Slingsby gins as we made our own (she even knew who wanted which gin by the end and didn't even need to ask!)
Suffice to say, a brilliant overall experience and definitely worth the cost.... We only hope the gins we made will be as nice as our Slingsby favourites !!!

Thanks so much for creating such a great experience and afternoon out!
