Burley couple create winning Yorkshire rhubarb tipple

A couple from Burley in Wharfedale got the chance to indulge their love of Yorkshire’s famous rhubarb when they won our ‘Design a Cocktail’ competition.


Linda and Colin Gornall scooped first prize with their winning recipe for a Yorkshire Rhubarb Express - a heady mix of Yorkshire rhubarb gin, rhubarb syrup, lemon juice, rhubarb bitters and prosecco. Their prize was a visit to The Ticket Office where the couple created their winning tipple.

“The inspiration for the cocktail came from my love of rhubarb”, said Linda.

“Making the cocktail was great fun but there’s a lot more to it than I realised. The team at The Ticket Office are real masters and they make mixing cocktails look easy. I think I’m better at drinking cocktails than I am at making them!”, she added.

Congratulations Colin and Linda- you were worthy winners! We loved how your recipe showcased the delicate and tangy flavour of Yorkshire rhubarb.

Full Steam Ahead

After months of meticulous planning, weeks of heavy duty cocktail development and a smattering of sleepless nights, we cast aside the builder’s screens and flung open The Ticket Office doors on Friday 1 December 2017.

If you managed to join us on our opening night, thanks for helping to make the occasion so special. We hope you had fun and that we impressed you!

To the many local businesses, friends, family and other special folks who came along during our launch week, it was great to see you! We hope we delivered a First Class experience.

If you‘ve already succumbed to the heady pleasure that is a Rhubarb Triangle’ - the cocktail I’ve created to raise funds for Ilkley Candlelighters - we say a huge “Chin Chin Daarhling”. Thanks so much for supporting this important cause.

Over the coming months I’ll be using this page to bring you our news and share some of my favourite cocktail recipes – get in touch if you want your tipple of choice to feature here in future!

For now, come and pay us a visit and let us know what you think. We’re unapologetically chuffed with the place and we hope you’ll love it.
