Opening of York’s main hotel York Gin Garden

A POPULAR York hotel is launching a gin garden this summer.

The main York, near York Station, has teamed up with York Gin to transform the hotel’s canteen terrace into the York Gin Garden from 25 June to 2 September.

Open seven days a week, guests can soak up the summer sun or, on cooler evenings, warm up under freestanding heaters, while blankets will also be available.

Managing Director Tracy Harrison said: “Being able to partner with York Gin is a great way to promote and support a much-loved local gin business. Having the opportunity to serve award-winning gins to our customers is extremely exciting, we are delighted to have York Gin on board and look forward to introducing the York Gin Garden.

“We are therefore absolutely delighted to present our world-renowned gins in the hotel’s fabulous new gin garden this summer.

“The York Gin Garden will be the perfect place to sit back, relax and enjoy a delicious York Gin or York G&T cocktail.”
