Description

Details

In 1571 William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from Harrogate’s Tewit Well. His discovery brought visitors from all around to the wonderfully picturesque spa town. They came to ‘take the waters’ which were thought to have medicinal properties. To this day, people from across the globe still visit Harrogate to restore body, mind and soul by relaxing, indulging and socialising. If it had not been for Slingsby's discovery, Harrogate would not be what it is today.

Inspired by this story, founders Marcus Black and Mike Carthy embarked on an adventure.  They wanted to create a product that would celebrate this heritage and bring to life the essence and restorative nature of Harrogate.  In 2014, the Spirit of Harrogate was born. 

Their very first product, Slingsby London Dry Gin was created in August 2015. 18 different variants of the gin were passionately developed as they went through 15 months of development until they were truly happy with the final product. They are now proud to offer a range of award-winning products to people around the globe and have their very own flagship store and experience in Harrogate. 

Slingsby's 24 botanicals include hand-grown local plants synonymous with the beautiful and restorative nature of Harrogate. These include primrose, sweet cicely, nettle, rhubarb, milk thistle, rosehip and Taylors of Harrogate green and jasmine tea. 12 of these botanicals are sourced from the kitchen garden at Rudding Park hotel in Harrogate.  If you pay them a visit you will see these botanicals marked out on their garden map to show where these are grown. The rhubarb in their Yorkshire Rhurbarb gin is sourced from Oldroyd's farm in Wakefield which is part of the world famous 'Rhubarb triangle'.
