About this Event

The award winning Bloody Tour of York has joined forces with the award winning York Gin, the only gin distilled in the historical city of York, to create a fascinating tour around York.

Mad Alice will take you to three* different unique venues for a sit down with a York Gin and tonic. Learn about the fascinating history of the drink and why York Gin has won global awards for its unique taste and flavour. On the way to each venue, Mad Alice will regale you with tales of York's sordid past and the characters which inspired York Gin's most potent gin, OUTLAW. At 57% abv, it's more than a little naughty...

On the tour, you will be served a total of 3 York Gins from the following list;

York Gin Original, York Gin Roman Fruit, York Gin Grey Lady, York Gin Old Tom and the extraordinary York Gin OUTLAW.

With numerous different pubs around York, each with their own fascinating story, The Bloody York Gin Tour is a great way to explore York and learn about the nation's favourite tipple.

At the end of the tour if you have enjoyed the gins, you will be given a 10% discount card to use at the shop to buy any of the gins and other York Gin merchandise.

York Gin OUTLAW is the show stopper and is guaranteed on every tour. The other flavours are subject to availability and venue.

*Saturday tours will consist of ONE venue where 3 different York Gins will be served. As there is less walking between venues, tours may be shorted than the 2 hour allotted timeframe.

Great! Mad Alice has the answers! Please contact 07584 855443 or email info@thebloodytourofyork.co.uk you can also visit www.thebloodytourofyork.co.uk for more information.

Can anyone attend this event?

It is for strictly over 18's. ID may be required on the day for those lucky enough to have a youthful appearance.

What do I need to bring?

Please bring confirmation of your booking from Eventbrite. Mobile confirmations are accepted. Good walking shoes and a jacket in cooler weather. Sense of humour. Ooo and a brolly..this is Yorkshire afterall!

Where are the venues we will be going to?

The tour has partnered with several popular venues across the city centre. The tour route will be dictated by the number of people in the group as some venues are only small and others are only open on certain days. For the Saturday tours, we have 2 special venues that will host all 3 York Gins. The first Saturday tour of the month will be at the Black Swan, Peaseholme Green, one of the oldest pubs in York. The second Saturday tour of the month will be hosted by Mr. P's Curious Tavern, Petergate, run by the Michelin Star Chef Andrew Pern who created the recipe for the award winning York Gin Old Tom.

Will we be going to the York Gin distillery?

Sadly not. It is a fair bit outside the city centre. It is situated at Acaster Malbis and they will welcome visitors to have a look anytime.

I don't drink gin. Can I request another drink?

Well my friend, I'm afraid this is the wrong tour for you! We are all about gin and as we are talking about York Gin in particular, it cannot be substituted for another brand. You may buy additional drinks at each venue.

I'm not a big tonic fan. Can I substitute it for lemonade or soda water?

Blasphemy! That's OK, its not for everyone. Just let Mad Alice know when you book the tour.

Any food on the tour?

Food is not included with the tour but at some venues food is available to buy. The tour will finish at a venue where you can finish the night with a meal. If you wish to book dinner reservations please let Mad Alice know when purchasing your Bloody York Gin Tour Ticket.

How long it the tour?

It will be a total of 2 hours, though may carry on longer if Mad Alice herself is drinking! There is a schedule to the tour as the venues need to know when to expect us so we will try to keep to time. Saturday tours will be 90 minutes as we will only be at one venue.

How to I get there?

WE DO NOT RECOMMEND YOU DRIVE. All tours will begin at the York Gin Shop located on Pavement (opposite the Shambles) right in the centre of town. It is a 10 minute walk from York Minster. Taxis will be able to drop you at the door. The nearest bus stops are Piccadilly, Merchantgate and Stonebow. If you require a taxi at the end of the tour, let Mad Alice know.

Could I have a refund if I can't make it?

A full refund will be given upto 24 hours after the initial booking. A 50% refund will be given if it is prior to 48 hours to the start of the tour. Due to liaising with different bars and advance payment of gins, refunds cannot be granted without 48 hours notice.

I'm running late on the day. What do I do?

Please contact Mad Alice on 07584 855443 who will inform you of the venues to go to. If there is no answer Mad Alice may be on a tour, please visit inside the York Gin Shop who will be able to advise you on where to go.

What happens if the tour gets cancelled?

A minimum of 4 people is required for this tour to run or it may be cancelled. If the tour is cancelled, 24 hours notice will be given and a full refund will be offered to all guests.

Do you accept private bookings on other days?

Absolutely. Private bookings are available for parties of 6+ upto 40. Please email Mad Alice directly at info@thebloodytourofyork.co.uk . The Bloody York Gin Tour cannot operate after 6pm Thursday Friday Saturday, as Mad Alice is busy with The Bloody Tour of York.

Anything else I should know?

We have a strict policy to abide by. IT IS AGAINST THE LAW TO SERVE ANYONE WHO IS INTOXICATED. We therefore recommend that you DO NOT drink prior to the tour. We want you to enjoy yourselves but responsibly. Anyone who is unfit due to alcohol or other substances will be asked to leave the tour with funds and gins forfeited. Mad Alice has a responsibility to other guests on the tour and any verbal or physical aggression is not tolerated.
