Lorraine and Aimee Forshaw own and run two bars in Skipton - VSQ Gin and More and Sound Bar, and whilst they are both very different indeed, there's no harm in a little research trip to check them both out is there?

Located on Victoria Square, seconds from Skipton high street, VSQ Gin and More has over 200 types of gin and comes with bartenders brimming with recommendations. Whilst there's no shortage of beer, wine, rum and everything in between, it's the modern-day gin craze that has made this venue a frequent pit stop for people Skipton.
