The first batch of LEEDS GIN went on sale in March 2016 and is distilled under the watchful eye and skilful handywork of Sara Birkinshaw. Trying to keep things as local as possible, Sara has successfully sourced the finest Yorkshire forced rhubarb from E. Oldroyd’s in Leeds and has freeze-dried it to ensure the same wonderful taste of Leeds Gin can be enjoyed all year round.
Having dedicated many years seeking out her ideal gin in the fantastic gin bars of Palma, London and New York, Sara feels she has truly created a gin that Leeds and indeed, the whole of the region, can be proud of!
Bold and crisp, balanced by subtle notes of cinnamon and orange.
Initially clean, dry juniper joined by an emerging sweetness with a pleasant mellow bitterness that leads on to delicate anise tones and a dessert spice kick.
Mixture of the classical dry, citrus, fresh finish alongside a lingering honeyed sweetness, bolstered by the addition of Yorkshire Forced Rhubarb.
