York Cocoa Gin A unique distillation of York Dry Gin with the finest cocoa beans from the York Cocoa Works. £39.95 Awarded bronze at the World Gin Awards 2019 - combines in a unique distillation York Dry Gin with the finest cocoa beans from the York Cocoa Works. The result is a subtle but unmistakable nose of the most divine chocolate elements soaring above the gin’s more traditional botanicals. The heart or centre of the cocoa bean is used in York Cocoa Gin. This is the part of the bean that is used to make chocolate. The single source bean in this York Cocoa Gin is either the Gran Nativo Blanco from Peru or the Arauquita from Colombia. York Cocoa Gin is a clear gin because it's distilled rather than steeped.
