Masons of Yorkshire Distillery

Operated by: Masons of Yorkshire

With its traditional distillation method, the right balance of juniper, citrus elements and secret botanicals the team at Masons have finally created a distinctly unique gin they are proud to call Masons of Yorkshire Gin.

Having a real passion for gin Karl & Cathy Mason launched Masons Yorkshire Gin on World Gin Day 2013. 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.

It’s very much a working distillery, housing three 250 litre copper alembic stills which currently distil 5 days per week and are usually surrounded by continual activity since bottling and labelling is also done on-site.

At their state-of-the-art distillery in the heart of Yorkshire, you can discover the magic and marvellousness behind Yorkshire’s favourite gin. Learn the art of distilling, develop your senses with guided tastings of their range or join them for a sophisticated cocktail evening where you will learn the coveted art of mixology.

Visits are welcome and you can chat to the team who will happily let you sample gin, affectionately known as Steve & Leftie with our newest still provisionally called Katy (mainly because the distillery team weren’t sure how to pronounce the maker of the still, Kothe!).

Opening times – Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm / Saturday 9am to 3pm

Karl Mason, Masons of Yorkshire

No stranger to a crisis: Masons of Yorkshire draws strength from distillery fire experience to face Covid-19 challenge The Covid-19 outbreak and subsequent lockdown restrictions have challenged every distiller, with on-trade sales shutting down overnight and deliveries presenting logistical challenges.
