The Gin – Slingsby – Blackberry Gin
Beginning in North Yorkshire, in the town of Harrogate, Slingsby Gin was founded by Marcus Black and Mike Carthy who both embarked on this adventure together, it took over 15 months and 18 different variants of Gin blends before finding the perfect recipe.
The inspiration for the name ‘Slingsby’ came from the real William Slingsby who in 1571 discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from Harrogate’s Tewit Well. His discovery brought thousands of visitors to ‘take the waters’ which were thought to have medicinal properties and to this day, people from all over the world visit the spa town to restore their body, mind and soul.
Slingsby Gin’s mission is to capture the ‘Spirit of Harrogate’ and deliver it in a bottle for you to enjoy from anywhere in the world.
