Gin lovers can enjoy an all-Yorkshire G & T for the first time with the launch of a new range of premium Yorkshire Tonics produced by award-winning Raisthorpe Manor.
The Yorkshire Tonics are the latest innovation from Raisthorpe as it prepares to celebrate its 10th anniversary this year.
The five new tonics are being produced at Raisthorpe’s farm on the Yorkshire Wolds by blending local water with a range of citrus and fruity botanicals including strawberry and pomegranate, pink grapefruit, citrus apple and elderflower and a premium tonic.
All five tonics are hand crafted to perfectly complement Raisthorpe’s extensive range of botanical gins and vodkas as well as its traditional dry gin and can also be enjoyed chilled on their own over ice as an alternative non-alcoholic drink.
Raisthorpe’s sales and operations director Oliver Medforth said: “The popularity of gin continues to grow – it’s all about flavourful botanicals and provenance. The modern G & T is a cocktail of flavours and our new tonics elevate the natural qualities of the gin without overpowering them.
“The aromatic tonics have been carefully developed to enhance the flavours of spirts, for example, the strawberry and pomegranate will be an ideal top up to our rhubarb gin, while the premium tonic is a perfect accompaniment to our full range of gins and vodkas, as well as other premium Yorkshire gins and vodkas. After all, tonic makes up two thirds of the drink and pairing the right tonic with your gin is just as important as your choice of gin.”
Raisthorpe’s Yorkshire tonics come in 200 ml bottles proudly emblazoned with the White Rose of Yorkshire and RRP is £1.50 each. The tonics are available from delis, farm shops and independent retailers or online from www.raisthorpemanor.com.
