“We are really excited to be partnering with such amazing brands to create a drink that we think is the perfect nod to Yorkshire. As a brand based in the North, we thought our Super Cubes, which are made from spring water from East Yorkshire, are the perfect base for the drink.”

Nothing beats a brew and Taylors of Harrogate has added its touch to the cocktail. Abigail Sawyer said:
“Here at Taylors, we pride ourselves on producing outstanding tea and coffee, so it’s great to see our Earl Grey being used to concoct a quirky new drink to mark Yorkshire Day.”

Steve Hickey, Sales and Marketing Director at Ellers Farm Distillery, makers of Dutch Barn Orchard Vodka, added:
“The water used to create all our products is sourced directly from the ground beneath it. There is no better way to celebrate Yorkshire than to use locally sourced ingredients and turn them into something that not only tastes exceptional, but is better for the planet, too.”

Completing the cocktail is Pure Yorkshire Honey which is wholly made in… you guessed it – Yorkshire! These quintessential flavours combined make the perfect representation of God’s Own County.
