Slingsby debuts gin-flavoured cream

Yorkshire-based Spirit of Harrogate has partnered with UK supermarket Morrisons to launch a limited-edition gin-flavoured cream, made with Slingsby Gin.

The Best Extra Thick Slingsby Gin Cream is described as an “indulgent, trendy alternative” to the traditional brandy cream topping. Said to contain “big, bright botanical flavour” from the 24 botanicals in Slingsby Gin, the cream is recommend served with desserts and mince pies. Co-founder and managing director of Spirit of Harrogate, Mike Carthy, said: “We are a proud Yorkshire business that does things differently, thinks differently and has a different vision to others. “Giving a new, festive gin twist to a classic ingredient like cream was something we were very excited about experimenting with and we hope people enjoy it just as much as we do with their friends and families over the Christmas period. The Best Extra Thick Slingsby Gin Cream is available from Morrisons stores nationwide for £2.50 for 250ml. In April this year, Slingsby entered into its “biggest” partnership to date – a sponsorship deal with rugby team the British and Irish Lions.
