Our Story

The Beginning

Masons Yorkshire Gin was created by Karl and Cathy Mason, gin enthusiasts with no prior knowledge of the industry who set out to produce a drink that stood out from the crowd, a unique gin with more character and more taste.

The first Masons gin was launched on International Gin Day 2013, and since then Masons Yorkshire Gin has grown phenomenally.

The Process

The essence of our gin and how we produce it is still the same as when we started out. All our gin is distilled in copper alembic stills (known as Steve and Leftie) in 200 litre batches.

We use a traditional slow distillation method, pure Yorkshire water and just the right balance of botanicals to create a distinctive gin that we are proud to call our own.

The Gin

Masons first launched with our Original Gin in 2013.

In 2015, we expanded the core range to bring in a Lavender and Tea edition (using Yorkshire Tea of course!).

Further Special Editions have been added since to complement the range, including Distilled Sloe and Steve's Apple. Most recently, our Peppered Pear Special Edition was launched at the 2017 Harrogate Christmas Market.
