York Gin Outlaw - 50cl - 57% ABV
From York Gin:
"York has the reputation as a beautiful historic - but sometimes rebellious - city. And the often gory stories of bad behaviour by its very own outlaws is behind this "bad rep".
Guy Fawkes tried to blow up Parliament in 1605 - and his effigy is burned every 5th November for his troubles. He managed to throw himself off the scaffold and break his neck just before he was hanged, drawn and quartered. A resourceful product of St Peter’s School, York to the end (as a mark of respect to their old boy, the school refuses to burn a Guy on Plot Night. Childhood friend of Fawkes, John Wright, also attended St Peter’s and went on to enjoy a career as a Gunpowder Plotter. He also came to a sticky end in 1605 (shot dead)."
