Spirit of Harrogate Ltd

Slingsby Gin is the brainchild of Mike Carthy and Marcus Black, two individuals who like to think and operate differently to their peers. Bringing the history of the famous Spa town of Harrogate was essential to the development of this gin.

Mike Carthy, a qualified chemist, had worked in the drinks industry for over three decades before co-founding Spirit of Harrogate.

Marcus Black is still a relative newcomer to the gin industry, having worked in mergers and acquisitions for 15 years before backing a partial management buyout of InterContinental Brands and joining the firm as Commercial Director.

The duo created Slingsby in order to pursue a different direction, though one that complemented their on-going work with ICB.

Slingsby Old Tom Gin

Slingsby’s own interpretation of an old style of gin popular in the 18th century, when strict licensing made it difficult to make and sell gin. The image of a tomcat hung outside a door indicated that this was an illegal distillery. Slingsby’s classic London Dry Gin base remains, however the addition of Yorkshire liquorice creates a sweeter more mellowed gin.
