Yorkshire gins put “zing” into summer

Oliver Medforth

Yorkshire Wolds based Raisthorpe Manor is launching three new fruity gins to celebrate summer.

The three small batch flavoured gins – Bubble Gum, Lemon Drizzle, and Orange – are all made with Raisthorpe’s finest 40% proof gin.

Quirky and retro, Bubble Gum Gin builds on the success of nostalgic flavours such as Raisthorpe’s popular Sweet Violet Gin Liqueur.

A combination of fruit flavours including strawberry, cherry and cinnamon flavours evoke memories of the childhood sweet favourite.

With all the luscious citrus flavour of a lemon cake, Raisthorpe’s Lemon Drizzle Gin is zesty and naturally sweet while its new Orange Gin is made with a twist of aromatic orange peel to provide real zing.

All three gins can be served over ice, either neat or mixed with premium tonic waters, lemonade, or for an extra special drink, a sparkling wine or prosecco.

Raisthorpe’s sales and operations director Oliver Medforth said: “We pride ourselves on a close relationship with our customers and we noticed a real trend for nostalgic flavours. Our favourite is the new Bubble Gum Gin which recalls the flavours of childhood confectionery and is proving popular with consumers.”

The gins are the latest addition to Raisthorpe’s range of award-winning gin, vodka and whisky and follow the company’s success at this year’s Great Taste Awards.

Raisthorpe won six coveted gold stars for its Rose and Sloe Gins, its Raspberry Gin Liqueur and Pink Grapefruit Yorkshire Tonic at the awards.

Raisthorpe products are made using only the finest (locally sourced where possible) ingredients and have won 12 Great Taste Awards in total. Two of its liqueurs are currently stocked in the cocktail bars of Harvey Nichols nationwide.

Available in 50 cl bottles, the new summer gins retail for £22  a bottle and are available from independent retailers throughout the country as well as via Raisthorpe’s website.
