Gin lovers are being given the chance to taste locally distilled spirits as they enjoy live tunes from popular singer Chris Berry in the name of charity.

Following the success of the first G&T (Gin and Therapy) event that raised over £200 for the Yorkshire Air Ambulance in November, a second fundraiser will take place on Friday 2 March.

The theme of this event at the Mile Farm Shop in Pocklington is still G &T, but this time its ‘Gin and Tunes’ with live, acoustic music from Hull born singer, Chris Berry.

Guests will be able to try two gins from Yorkshire distillers including Slingsby, Masons, Sir Robin of Locksley, Whittaker’s, Sloemotion and Raisthorpe.

Each will be accompanied with a tailored garnish and premium Fevertree tonic.

Talking about the event, co-owner of the Mile Farm Shop, Jo Barnes said: “We were very keen to run another event to support the Yorkshire Air Ambulance and when Chris came to interview us with his Yorkshire Post journalist hat on, we got talking about music and fundraising and decided to put onto an evening of gin tasting and live music.

“Chris’s recent solo tour raised almost £1,000 for Yorkshire Air Ambulance so it will be great to work together to give something back to the team who work tirelessly to raise the funds to keep the air ambulances running.”

Tickets for the Gin and Tunes Taster Evening cost £10 and are available from the farm shop or can be reserved over the phone by calling 01759 305420.
