York Gin Afternoon Tea

We are delighted to be partnering with our local distillery York Gin!! ‘History in the tasting’ and we couldn’t be happier. 

Enjoy an afternoon tea with a difference in the stunning surroundings of the Leetham’s Restaurant, our own piece of York history.  Redesigned by Mackintosh contemporary, George Walton, the Elmbank hotel is home to one of the finest and most complete Art Nouveau collections in the UK. Here, impressive stained-glass, beautiful murals, and detailed stencils meld with modern and sophisticated facilities to provide a space of style, comfort, and interest

We have 3 York Gins to choose from, take your pick from London Dry, a beautiful, smooth and balanced dry gin, best served with a fever tree light and a curl of lemon, Old Tom, a very slightly sweetened dry gin, with Yorkshire Rose and herbs from the Michelin-starred Star Inn, Harome, best served with a fever tree light and star anise, or Roman Fruit, a full-strength dry gin with no added sugar. Fruits and flowers from Ancient Rome including strawberries and hibiscus give it a deep red hue, best served with a fever tree Mediterranean and strawberries and raspberries.

Then we have a delicious traditional afternoon for you with a delicious twist!! To accompany your selection of freshly cut finger sandwiches and cakes, we have a warm scone and clotted cream served with Pink Grapefruit & York Gin Marmalade! Beautiful, we will let you decide whether its cream on the bottom on or on the top.

And finally a freshly brewed tea of coffee to finish.
