Award-winning Haworth Gin pops up at Leeds White Rose Shopping Centre
Gin lovers rejoice!
The Haworth Steam Brewery has opened a special Christmas pop-up shop at Debenhams in the White Rose Centre.
The shop, featuring all of HSB’s award-winning gins and tonics, is open every day - including Sundays - until Christmas Day.
It is being run by Kelly Gascoigne, daughter of Andy Gascoigne, HSB’s founder and ex- Yorkshire Rugby League star.
Kelly said: “I was at a promotional event for our gins in London and was approached by a Debenhams’ representative who loved our stall. She suggested we set up something similar in the White Rose centre - and here we are.
“This is a wonderful opportunity for us to showcase our very special gins, tonics and mixers. The footfall is pretty impressive – and the store will get busier and busier as Christmas
Awards for the gins and tonics, stimulated by the town’s global literary and creative heritage and inspired by the wild moors, have poured in.
In the recent prestigious Taste Awards, Haworth Gins and Gascoigne’s Tonics and Mixers were major winners.
The coveted two stars were awarded to Gascoigne’s Red GooseberryTonic and Gascoigne’s Sour Bramley Apple Mixer; while the one stars were given to Gascoigne’s Blackcurrant and Liquorice Mixer; Gascoigne’s Orange and Grapefruit Tonic; Gascoigne’s Pomegranate Tonic; and Miss Mollie’s Liquorice Blackjack Gin.
Kelly added: “We are very proud, not just of these awards, but also of our colourful branding, which has already sparked a good deal of interest at our pop up. There’s are a real Christmas atmosphere here at Debenhams now and we are absolutely delighted to be part of it.
"Customers are talking about how gin is a crucial part of the festive season - and we couldn’t agree more. Do come and see us any time before Christmas – and have a free glass of gin on us."
