Gin Festival 2020 at The Black Bull, York

Last year’s Gin Festival was an absolutely fantastic event and we’re already busy planning our next event working with suppliers on some new and exciting gins for you to try at The Black Bull, York.

In the meantime, don’t forget that with our G&T Guarantee we promise that not only will we deliver your selected G&T with plenty of ice and a fresh fruit garnish, perfectly first-time but, if you don’t get the ideal serve, we’ll pour you a replacement drink for FREE – and that’s a promise!


And, to properly kickstart our gin festival in 2020, we’d also like to introduce a brand-new gin for you to enjoy! 

Introducing Gordon’s Orange Gin. It’s the perfect citrus-infused follow-up to to last year’s hugely popular Gordon’s Pink Gin, featuring deliciously fruity tones and it’s the perfect hark back to the 1950s when this flavour was originally distilled — and, we’re super-proud to let you know that Sizzling Pubs will also be the first place where you can try this refreshingly fruity spirit.


What makes the perfect G&T?

To make the perfect G&T, it’s all about the order of creation — this is crucial.

We make sure that the glass as cold as possible, before adding plenty of ice (3/4 full, always) and pour out any excess water before adding the gin. 

Next, we top up your drink with the ideal mixer, such as a Slimline Britvic tonic. 

Last (and by no means least), we add the garnish which matches the gin you’ve chosen, and there you have it a perfect G&T to enjoy throughout the summer — check out our extensive Gin menu to see which garnish matches your drink!
