If you’ve been to Alexander’s recently, you may have noticed that the various flavours of Harrogate Tipple gin have had pride of place as Gin of the Week. If you indulged in a tipple, we hope you enjoyed it- let us know, we’d love to hear what you thought.

We love supporting local gin brands and feature them throughout our drinks menu, so we’re delighted that Harrogate Tipple are coming on board as the featured gin at our Gin & Jazz evenings. Give them a try; two of their unique gins will be making an appearance on our ‘Gin Flight’ tasting board, available for £10.

It doesn’t stop there; tonic water titans, Fever-Tree, have also joined the party, so get ready to try  some exceptional gin and tonic creations.

Our Gin & Jazz events as always are free entry, but for a special treat at Tuesday 6 November’s Gin & Jazz night, for just £15 you can take part in a special Gin Tasting Experience run by our friends from Harrogate Tipple. Included in the ticket price is a full-sized Premium Gin & Tonic and one Blueberry and one Gooseberry Gin taster- all perfectly paired with Fever-Tree Tonic Water and garnishes. Plus a free taster of Harrogate Tipple Rum!

There’s no need to book, simply let us know on arrival that you’d like to take part.

The next Gin & Jazz event is on Tuesday 2 October from 7pm, so grab your sense of adventure and try some exciting local and international gins whilst listening to the smooth vocals of our resident boogie-woogie piano man, Tom Seals and his musical guests.

Blueberry Harrogate Gin

This sweet gin features handpicked blueberries distilled with delicate botanicals including lavender, finished with Harrogate Spring Water.

Cornflower petals help give this gin its beautifully unique and subtle blue hue.


Feel refreshed by adding Fever-Tree classic tonic water, lime and fresh mint or for a sweeter tooth, try adding sugar syrup and a sprig of thyme instead.

Gooseberry Harrogate Gin

A beautifully balanced gin of exceptional quality with sweet and floral notes. Traditional Yorkshire gooseberries are handpicked from Harrogate Tipple’s very own gooseberry bushes and distilled with delicate botanicals including lavender and finished exclusively with Harrogate Spring Water.

Garden sorrol roots give this gin its wonderful character and unique green hue.


Add Fever-Tree elderflower tonic water and a peeled pear garnish for a fresh, floral taste or if you’re not the biggest fan of tonic, try a tangy Fever-Tree ginger ale with lime.

Premium Harrogate Gin

Fresh botanicals from Harlow Carr (the Royal Horticultural Society’s Garden, Harrogate) infused with lavender, pink grapefruit and Harrogate Spring Water- creating the perfect premium gin.


Add Fever-Tree light tonic water with sweet pink grapefruit and pink peppercorns or if you’re pining for summer, Fever-Tree mediterranean with peeled cucumber will take you there in spirit!
