Gintopia Est. 2016

Our Story

We are three Yorkshire lasses (actually two and one honorary) wanting to spread the joy of premium gins to the world, well Yorkshire to start with.

We begin 20 years ago, in the butler’s pantry with Helen who was introduced to gin by her dear friend Robin Lancelot Little who only drank pink gin (and still does)! He did however allow Helen to mix hers with tonic, and that’s where the love affair (with gin) began.  However back then we all had a limited choice of distillers of gin but that was about to change.


Helen along with the rest of the world was joining the gin revolution, which seemed to be revelling in exotic tonics and garnishes - so much to taste., drink and choose from.  However the festival and show circuit just hadn't caught up!  Feeling very disappointed, at the poor choice (if any) of gin and tonics when visiting outdoor events and festivals, Helen along with her friends Carol and Angela decided to do something pro-active and looked at the idea of building their very own gin box. 


Carol has a distinct love for gin, and the chance to own her own mobile gin bar was too good to pass up. What a fabulous opportunity to join two friends in an exciting new venture to bring the joy of a decent G&T to the crowds. Just tasting and sourcing is her favourite part, she is happiest at home with her two Labradors and her craft studio, a G&T in hand, she's comfortable in the background dealing with all the organisational requirements.


Angela loves the world of gin, it’s a hard job but someone has to do it, she has sipped shaken and mixed her way through many a gin to ensure we have the best gins on our menu.  She loves people, places and events and making people happy (it’s an Italian thing!). She loves food and drink and loves this perfect excuse to pretend this is work, when in fact it’s having huge amounts of fun with friends and gin lovers


We source the best gins, tonics and garnishes from Yorkshire and beyond.

Visiting GinTopia is the perfect opportunity to take a rest from the throng, pop your feet up, and savour the ambience with a lovingly prepared G&T.

We’re guaranteed to enhance your event, and challenge the norm, with a zest of originality and a dash of Yorkshire hospitality - just what your guests expect.
