Masons Yorkshire Gin distillery
9 The Craft Yard
Telephone – 01677 426467
With its traditional distillation method, Harrogate spring water and just the right balance of juniper, citrus elements and secret botanicals (they even have our own juniper bushes now), the team at Masons have finally created a distinctly unique Gin they are proud to call Masons Yorkshire Gin.
Set on the edge of the Yorkshire Dales in the market town of Bedale, Masons Yorkshire Gin were the first to establish a distillery in Yorkshire back in 2014, the year after they launched.
Having a real passion for gin Karl & Cathy Mason launched Masons Yorkshire Gin on World Gin Day 2013, using an external distillery to help them launch the plan was always to start their own distillery as soon as growth/funds allowed, and 7 months after launch the first still was delivered to them.
It’s very much a working distillery, tight on space and housing two 300 litre alembic stills which currently distill 3 days per week and are usually surrounded by continual activity since bottling and labeling is also done on-site.
Despite not having visitor center facilities the door is open Monday to Friday 8.30am until 5pm. Visits are welcome and you can chat to the team who may be distilling or packing on any particular day and they will happily let you sample gin, often straight from the stills, affectionately known as Steve & Leftie”
Opening times – Monday to Friday 8.30am to 5pm
Visitor facilities – minimal, you may even be asked to help out!
