New Partnership Raises A Toast To Bootham Crescent

4th February 2021

York City Football Club are delighted to announce a multi-year partnership with York Gin.

Kicking off the partnership, fans can raise a toast to Bootham Crescent with the distillery producing a limited run of ‘Farewell Bootham Crescent’ gin with one bottle printed for each season the club has spent at the ground.

The 70cl bottles go on sale for £39 at 9am on February 5th 2021 on the York Gin website.

Matching the branding and style of the club's 'Farewell Bootham Crescent' merchandise, York Gin have replaced their normal logo with illustrations from the ground's history.

£5 from the sale of each bottle of the London Dry gin will go to brain injury charity, Headway. Old Minsterman Dan Parslow (pictured above) has been a tireless supporter of the charity after his own injury.

From the highs of the second division and a cup win over Arsenal, to the lows of the David Longhurst tragedy, Bootham Crescent played host to some unforgettable moments.

‘Bootham Crescent means so much to York City Football Club,’ said Chris Pegg, the club’s Commercial Manager. ‘The ground has been a huge part of the York community since 1932 and this initiative with York Gin as well as the merchandise we have produced is as much about the families and community who love and support the club as much as it is about Bootham Crescent itself.’

‘The ground will live long and happy in people’s memory and our thanks go to York Gin for taking the time to honour Bootham Crescent as we embark on a very exciting commercial partnership.’

Adam Cook, York Gin’s Sales Manager, said: ‘We’re delighted to be partnering York City – and the bottles look great. Each one really is unique, printed with its own season in Bootham Crescent’s history.'
