I am originally from Kent but escaped “North” in 1992 to go to college in York. Five years later I found myself in Bubwith wanting something more than my mundane office job. My love of food and drink was a great excuse to start up a business and it has grown from there. I do hope you enjoy looking through this site and make a trip to see us.
Here at The Jug we are very passionate about gin. I mean, who isn’t these days?! (Ok a few) but we believe there is a gin out there for everyone, they just haven’t discovered it yet.
That’s where we come in. We stock over 100 gins from the classic London Dry style to the weird and wacky ones where seaweed, or sacred hands are used to infuse amazing flavours into this diverse spirit.
We are always putting ourselves under strain to attend gin festivals and trade shows to discover new gins to market and find interesting distillers who have a passion and something unique about them. What’s not to love about our job!
We have made some fabulous discoveries over the past 4 years and boy has our selection grown. From Rock Rose with Sea Buckthorn to Edinburgh’s Rhubarb & Ginger, to a purple gin that is literally LIQUID Parma Violet to another that changes colour. Stand out gins are Pink Pepper, Manchester Raspberry & Hedgerow.
No gimmicks but pure quality, style and of course taste.
We’d love to welcome you to our world of gin, tucked away in East Yorkshire. Not only do we have a dedicated Yorkshire gin shelf or two, but many things that are gin related. From mugs, to tea towels, bath bombs to lip balm, great bags and key rings.
We can’t wait to see you. Come sit down and enjoy our cafe and let your taste buds enjoy themselves.
