Slingsby on the Slopes – An exciting new partnership

Slingsby Gin

 

It is with great pleasure and excitement that Freedom Ski can announce that this winter we have teamed up with multi-award winning Slingsby Gin to bring you ‘Slingsby on the Slopes’.

 

We recently made a team trip to visit the ‘Spirit of Harrogate’ to find out more about this exceptional tipple and to learn from their talented mixologists how to make the perfect ‘Slingsby Signature Serve’.

 

 

Based in Harrogate, Slingsby Gin is made with a pure single grain spirit, world-famous Harrogate spa water and the finest handpicked botanicals, many of which are grown locally in the kitchen garden of the historic Rudding Park Hotel.

Yorkshire is truly leading the charge in this ‘ginaissance’; with a host of hugely successful gin producers hailing from the county and selling more gin than anywhere else outside of London (not all of it to Jess and Ellie, two of our Chalet Hosts this winter, both hailing from Yorkshire!)

In recent years, we’ve witnessed a burgeoning interest amongst our guests for premium and luxury gins – we’ve been told it’s not all about price, or even about the classic ‘ice and a slice’, our discerning guests are seeking out new drinking experiences. They’ve got a keen eye on innovation, love discovering new flavours and search for a gin with an interesting provenance and story. It is for these reasons that we’ve partnered with Slingsby – we truly believe that our guests will love their gin!

 

 

 

 

This winter, we will not only be serving a classic Slingsby London Dry Gin, but we will also be treating our guests to Slingsby’s best-selling Rhubarb Gin, infused with locally grown Yorkshire Rhubarb.

The Freedom Ski team are now all fully trained in the art of ‘the Slingsby Serve’ and we can’t wait to pour you a restorative G+T as you chill out in our stunning luxury ski chalets after a tough day on the mountains.

 

After all, it’s 5 O’clock somewhere!…
