Spirit of Harrogate

Drinks in Harrogate

Craft gin is the raison d'être of this quaint shop, which local gin brand Slingsby runs as a bottle shop by day and as a convivial setting for gin-tasting sessions by night. On alternate Friday evenings and Saturday afternoons it holds a 'Spirit of Gin' experience, which includes a talk on the history of gin, tasters and nibbles for £40; book ahead.

During normal opening hours it's also possible to pop in and taste samples of experimental gins such as elderberry gin and lemon gin cream – all very small batch, and visitors are encouraged to provide feedback to help with product development.
