An exclusive one-off event to celebrate York Georgian festival

Multi-award winning guide Mad Alice will join our gin expert to present a dark history of Georgian York, alongside a gin tasting based around the amazing stories of the gin craze. With plenty of gin tasting along the way.

We are lucky to be holding this in the Terry's Board Room which overlooks St Helen's Square at the top of Impossible Bar. The building used to belong to Terry's of York and the room is a beautiful hidden gem.

The evening includes

- A generous York Gin & Tonic on arrival
- Georgian dark history with Mad Alice
- Tasters of 2 more historic York Gins - and the astonishing tale of the gin craze and how it shaped much of Georgian England.
- A second York Gin cocktail to finish.

- Option to include an exclusive Mad Alice Bloody Orange gin miniature for £5 (Usual price £7)
