Since 1571, when William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of natural spring water from the Tewit Well in Harrogate, discerning individuals have sought out the picturesque Yorkshire town to restore body, mind and soul by relaxing, indulging and socialising. Here’s how Slingsby does Christmas…

Let it Sloe

30ml home-made Slingsby Navy Strength sloe gin
Tbsp Damson jam
20ml sweet red vermouth
10ml white grapefruit juice
To make the homemade Navy Strength Sloe Gin. Add one bottle of Slingsby Navy Strength Gin to a sterilized glass container. Prepare 1kg of Sloe berries: Using a folk prick each sloe berry 2 – 3 times, this will allow the gin to infuse. Add the sloes to the gin and seal tightly. Store in a cool dark place for minimum of 3 weeks. The longer the gin is left the better the sloe berries will infuse. Serve in a rocks glass.
