Masons Yorkshire Gin Ltd

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 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.

Despite not having visitor centre facilities the shop door is open Monday to Friday 8am until 5pm and Saturday 9am until 3pm.

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!).

Masons Yorkshire Gin Ltd Brands:

Masons Original Yorkshire Gin

Light fennel upon the nose with fresh, damp grass notes mixed with soft juniper, lime and orange rind, leading to a subtle pepper finish. On the palate, a ripe aniseed start, becoming sweet with fresh, bold citrus flavours including deep orange rind. Plenty of cardamom, green apple and dandelion blend well, leading to a warm, long, mouth-watering finish. Key botanicals – Juniper, Cardamom, Bay leaf, Fennel seed and Szechwan Pepper

Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin – Lavender Edition

Dry lavender notes upon the nose, creating a rather soft and subtle experience, followed by a slight fennel aroma. Soft texture once onto the palate, with a fresh candied lavender sweet flavour dominating. Rather subtle across the senses, with anise creeping in on the dry finish. Made using Yorkshire Lavender from the Wolds, and adding it to the distillation. Key botanicals – Lavender, Juniper, Cardamom, Bay leaf, Fennel seed and Szechwan Pepper

Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin – Tea Edition

Dry notes of Yorkshire tea are present on the nose, with fresh, light hits as the aromas swirl around. Delicate and fresh upon the palate, with a slight citrus sharpness hitting the senses. Plenty of dry Yorkshire tea notes blast through, with fresh aniseed, cardamom and pepper making an appearance upon the long finish before the tea returns. Made using Yorkshire Tea, ripping open teabags and adding the loose tea to the distillation. Key botanicals – Yorkshire Tea, Juniper, Cardamom, Bay leaf, Fennel seed and Szechwan Pepper

Masons Dry Yorkshire Gin – Peppered Pear Edition

G12 Botanically Rich Dry Gin

With bursts of citrus fruit and hinds of fresh, Mediterranean herbs, recipe G12 is the perfect balance between dry and sweet gin. This uniquely refreshing gin offers an aromatic nose of fresh herbs, carefully balanced with subtle notes of juniper. A sharp, citrus start develops on the palate into a long, smooth finish of traditional botanicals and sweet basil.
