VSQ Gin Bar: Skipton


VSQ only opened last month and we were thrilled to find out that Brockmans is their best selling gin.

We met with the head bar tenders, Tom Grummett and Tom Venning, to find out more about VSQ bar, their huge selection of gins and of course, their popular Brockmans cocktail.

Name of bar:

Describe your bar in a few words:

Chic, trendy gin lounge. A home from home for our customers but offering variety and expertise from our bartenders without being too pretentious. A little hidden gem, tucked away from the high street in Skipton we’re a city style lounge-bar in a small market town.

What’s your signature drink:

A Brockmans Martini, it’s the perfect introduction to premium gin to our new customers and a firm favourite with the local booze hounds.

Best thing you’ve ever overheard at the bar:

We are often asked what VSQ means. One customer told us it was just a Very Silly Question.

What do you think will be the next big trend in drinks?

Spiced rum is doing well as we have more options and more variations to show our customers. We just love to play with great spirits and create the best drinks we can. We enjoy spicing our own rum, good drinks are becoming more like food and there is no limit to the creativity of our bartenders and ideas from our customers.

If you could have one last drink before you died, what would you choose?

Tom1 – Vanilla rum old fashioned with a good cigar and an open fire if possible.

Tom 2 – A Godfather. Make it a large one!
