A collaboration between Yorkshire supermarket Morrisons and Yorkshire gin Slingsby is bringing a delicious new gin cream to the shelves in time for Christmas! Mince pie with a hot gin toddy and gin cream anyone?

There's always something new happening at the Spirit of Harrogate shop (as if we needed another reason besides their famous Slingsby Rhubarb Gin to talk about it!) and this festive season is no different. The question is... which option would you like in your stocking?

  • Slingsby Gin Miniatures

Buying for someone who loves the rhubarb, london dry and navy strength equally? Or know it's time to introduce someone new to the world of Slingsby gin? Alternatively, just nbuy them for yourself and hand them on your Christmas tree - they even come with a pre-attached ribbon for exactly this.

  • Award-winning Slingsby Navy Strength Gin

So called from the days of the 18th century when gin was believed to be good for sailors, but was required to be a high alcohol proof so that if it should spill on to the gun powder it could still be lit, not only does this gin have an extra kick to it (57% kick actually) the Slingsby bottle recently won gold in the 2017 Gin Masters.

  • Gin experiences are getting bigger

And no we don't mean the amount gin you'll get in your glass when you do a Spirit of Harrogate Gin Experience, the shop on Montpellier Square in Harrogate is expanding for 2018 making more room for the ever popular gin events. 

Hot mince pies with a drizzle (or lashings) or the brand new gin cream featuring Slingsby from Morrisons supermarket... oh my. I rest my case.
