It’s unlike any other gin tour!  It follows the stories of the city’s most notorious and lesser-known outlaws including Guy Fawkes, Dick Turpin and ‘The Yorkshire Witch’, Mary Bateman.  The tour includes 3 different single York Gin & tonics, including the Navy Strength (57%ABV) York Gin Outlaw – our tribute to the city’s villains.  The tour is in the centre of York, starting outside the beautiful and historic York Gin shop on Pavement.”
