They used to prescribe the waters of Harrogate on the National Health Service and in Victorian times, upmarket visitors were advised to visit the spa town for at least six weeks to fully benefit from its restorative qualities. This genteel North Yorkshire retreat is probably better known for Bettys than booze, but just around the corner from the historic tearooms is a new phenomenon which combines the Harrogate waters with an alcoholic drink currently enjoying a modern renaissance – gin. Here you will find a place that doesn’t so much pay tribute to this spirit made from juniper berries as toast it to the heavens. Step off the sloping street and into a beautiful former townhouse converted into an apothecary, where you can learn about the unique history of gin, and taste some of the 100 gins and 50 tonics in store. The Slingsby Spirit of Harrogate Gin Experiences are fast becoming a must-do for locals and tourists alike. Dublin has its Guinness Brewery tour and Edinburgh its Scotch whisky tastings, now Harrogate’s Gin Experiences are on the map too. Behind the venture are entrepreneurs Marcus Black and Mike Carthy, who run £30m drinks company ICB, but wanted to create a premium artisan brand. They spent a year developing their idea before launching Slingsby Gin in September 2015 - named after William Slingsby who discovered the first spa water well in Harrogate in 1571.

The tipple provides up front juniper with more delicate aromas of elderflower bubbling through. Deliciously smooth and round on the palate, warm cassia are notes soothed with dandelion.
