Award-winning Harrogate gin brand Slingsby has been named ‘Britain’s favourite Rhubarb Gin.’

Slingsby Gin triumphed over competitors following an independent blind consumer tasting of four of the leading brands.

The taste test, which analysed the gins based on aroma and taste, put Slingsby top over other gin brands such as Warner’s, Harrogate Tipple and That Boutique-y Gin Company.

Slingsby’s popular Rhubarb Gin which has won twenty-two awards, including wins at the Gin Masters, London Spirits Competition, Bartender Brand Awards and San Fransico World Spirits Competition.

Marcus Black, Co-Founder of Slingsby Gin said:

“The taste test results really speak for themselves, and they finally confirm what we have always thought – that our Rhubarb Gin really is the best in the country!

“Rhubarb gin is hugely popular with British drinkers, and therefore the competition is stiff, but we really pride ourselves on the combination of fruity rhubarb from right here in Yorkshire with a tangy citrus undertone which ensures the drink isn’t too sweet, which many rhubarb gins on the market can be.

“We can’t wait for even more people to try our Rhubarb Gin this summer and experience it for themselves!”

Slingsby’s Rhubarb Gin first started as one of the brand’s development gins in its Spirit of Harrogate store and experience.

And after proving hugely popular with customers from the outset, is now one of their best-selling flavoured gins.

Slingsby creates its famous Rhubarb Gin using its London Dry Gin as a base, which is crafted using locally sourced fruits and botanicals, and masterfully infuses it with the finest Yorkshire rhubarb sourced from the famous ‘Rhubarb Triangle’.
