Once upon a time...Slingsby Gin
Long ago, the Dutch King William brought a magical elixir from Holland to the city of London. This elixir was called gin and it soon became the City’s most popular spirit.

And that’s the gin part of this story.

Here’s the tonic. In a far away place called Yorkshire, a young explorer by the name of William Slingsby was on a quest of discovery. He roamed the moors and dales until he arrived at a strange little town called Harrogate. Here Slingsby found the Tewit Well and soon realised that this was no ordinary well.

Once Upon A Time…Phillip Stoner The Jeweller
In an era when Duran Duran were top of the charts and perms were considered a good idea, a young boy named Jonathan watched as his parents created a fine jewellery business in the heart of Yorkshire.

Enamoured by this magical world where gold was woven into chain, diamonds were chosen to adorn beautiful rings and Michael Jackson’s stylist popped in with a request for bespoke silver buttons, jewellery soon became Jonathan’s passion.

Fast forward 26 years and the young boy’s hard work paid off. After training as a goldsmith, becoming the youngest qualified diamond grader in the UK at 17 and shadowing his parents in-store, Jonathan and the business both flourished and he became the proud owner of Phillip Stoner The Jeweller in 2008.
