The UK’s Biggest Gin & Rum Festival Is Coming To York This Summer

As we creep slowly back to normality, we can see summer fun peeking its head on the horizon – and it seems to be in the form of rum and gin. York is playing host to the largest gin and rum festival this summer – and we are sure that it will be the event of the year. Sitting on the sofa with a beer will be a thing of the past, you will be able to enjoy a whole host of spirits from experts in their field.

The event will take place over two days, and is exactly what summer is made for, getting out the house for the weekend and into the glorious sunshine, sunglasses on, skin red from lack of sunscreen and a lovely glass of gin or rum in hand. Mmmm.

Tickets cost just £16.62 and include two free 50ml miniature spirit bottles worth £10 to take home with you. Guests will also receive a Gin & Rum Festival Copa glass worth £5, and a stainless-steel straw and glass bag to use on the day.
