The inspiration behind the creating of the Yorkshire Dales Distillery spirits has been drawn from the beautiful surroundings,  life experiences, as well as an aspiration to create something that is totally unique.

The spirits are all hand crafted, and small batch distilled. The water used is locally sourced from the nearby River Swale. Our secret mix of botanicals has been inspired by the surrounding landscape and 



Tony & Sarah Brotherton started Yorkshire Dales Distillery in November 2016. Their passion for quality beverages is born from a longstanding family love for and work in the industry.

Tony’s cottage farm living grandparents were the original G&T fans inspiring a passion for home grown quality and the finest natural ingredients; Grandad used to scrimp on the gin for himself if times were hard but he always made sure that Grandma had her share.

Throughout years of moving to meet the needs of the Army we were frequently based in North Yorkshire and are now proud to have put down our roots here and to be creating some exceptional and intriguing spirits and tonic water using a unique and ancient mineral water, from the heart of the Dales, combined with hand selected local botanicals.
