July's Fruity Gin of the Month
Summer gooseberry season seems a good time to review one of our favourite fruit gins. Plus, we have some fantastic gooseberry gin cocktail recipes and a great offer available.
Slingsby Gooseberry Gin is crafted using the world-famous Harrogate aquifer water, pure single grain spirit, and locally sourced botanicals synonymous with the restorative nature of the town.
Yorkshire gooseberries add a great summer flavour to the excellent Slingsby London Dry Gin. The citrus notes of the Gin are complemented by the fruity sweetness of the gooseberries.
We love to serve this premium gin with Mediterranean tonic and some apple slices, for an elegant summer G&T.
