Found on the cobbles of York, Evil Eye is a cocktail bar with a difference. As well as being a great little cocktail bar – it holds the record for the most gins sold in one shop. If you know any gin fans make sure you let them know! Found on the famous cobbles of Stonegate, that Johnny Depp is rumoured to have visited.
The Evil Eye gin shop stocks a record-breaking 1,026 gins, which is pretty impressive considering it only converted its shop to sell gin back in 2017. They’re now quite the gin specialists and they have the certificate to prove it in the form of their Guinness World Record.
They sell gin from all over the world including United Kingdom, United States, Germany, Netherlands and Argentina as well as many many more. We can’t name all 1,026 he for many reasons. They acquired thousands of gin bottles before applying to the Guinness World Records.
It is also an amazing bar and restaurant that serves up some delicious food and cocktails. Holding the record for selling the most gins, you’d hope that they have some special gin cocktails on offer and they don’t disappoint.
Their Curd Your Enthusiasm cocktail is made with Haymans Old Tom gin, Cointreau, Limoncello, lemon curd & sugar syrup, which sounds delicious.
As Yorkshire folk, we like the sound of their Rhubarb & Custard Crumble which is made with Edinburgh Rhubarb & Ginger Gin liqueur, advocaat, milk & cream, ginger biscuit.
As well as their gin cocktails they do some of our favourite cocktails – a classic old fashioned, which is made with Jim Bean, bitters, sugar and orange twist, also their Bramble, which is Tanqueray Gin, creme de mure, lemon, sugar syrup.
Make sure you give them a visit, and make your way through some of the amazing cocktails they have on offer whilst enjoying the rays in their sun drenched outdoor terrace with views of the beautiful York Minster this summer.
