York Gin launches rhubarb gin

By popular demand, York Gin has launched a rhubarb gin as the brand celebrates its fifth birthday.

The announcement comes in the midst of Yorkshire’s rhubarb season, coinciding with the anniversary. 

The gin is crafted from seven classic botanicals including juniper berries, grains of paradise and angelica, along with fresh rhubarb. 

Natural sugar syrup is added after distillation to complement the rhubarb’s tanginess.

Co-founder Emma Godivala commented: “So many customers have asked if we’d do a rhubarb gin that finally we’ve caved in to mark York Gin’s fifth birthday. 

“Rhubarb is a quintessential English flavour. And the Yorkshire Rhubarb Triangle is world-famous for its technique of growing forced rhubarb indoors and picking it by candlelight to protect the delicate stems. 

‘We’ve worked incredibly hard to ensure this is a really top class addition to the rhubarb gin category.  We advise you to mix it with a premium light tonic, an elderflower tonic or a ginger ale or ginger beer. Rhubarb and ginger is a classic combination – and York Gin Rhubarb and ginger is a winner.”

The expression is available from York Gin stores, as well as its online shop. It’s priced at £42 for a 70cl bottle.
