Private visit and tasting at the Cooper King Distillery.

June 15, 2019 @ 4:00 pm - 6:00 pm


We are pleased to be able to offer our members the opportunity to visit Cooper King distillery in Sutton on the Forest near York.

On arrival, you will be offered a taster gin & tonic, followed by an introduction to the distillery and the adventurous story behind it. This lasts approx. 15 minutes. We then go through into the production area where we look at both gin and whisky production. Guests get to learn about the botanicals used, the different distillation processes for each spirit, and get to try/nose some of the unique botanicals used in Cooper King’s gin. This lasts anywhere between 30 – 45 mins depending on the number of questions asked!

We then retire to the tasting room where everyone gets to sample our gin (and Whisky if preferred), ask questions and purchase additional drinks from the bar (everything drunk up to this point is at no cost), or buy bottles and gift sets to take home.

The full visit last approximately 1.5 – 2 hours, but the bar will stay open longer if members wish to stay on afterwards.


The visit will take place on Saturday 15th June and start at 4.00pm. The cost is £15 for members and £17.50 for guest. This is likely to prove to be a popular visit and numbers are restricted to 25 so, if you are interested, please book early.

Please arrive at Cooper King Distillery, The Old Stable, Stillington Road, Sutton-on-the-Forest, York, YO61 1EH by 4pm latest.
