Harrogate Tipple

Distillery in North Yorkshire

Could there be any more natural setting for a gin and tonic than in a country village watched over by a castle? This craft distillery in Ripley has usurped the old stables to build a tiny operation making gin using botanicals grown in the castle gardens, and rum with local bees’ honey. Tours (£12) and tastings last about half an hour, finishing in the shop.
