Sales of Raisthorpe's Yorkshire Tonics has exceeded expectations since being launched a year ago. Its Pink Grapefruit Yorkshire Tonic was awarded two Gold Stars at this year's Great Taste Awards.

The Yorkshire Tonics box set is embossed with beautiful Yorkshire scenery and features 200ml bottles of Skinny Premium, Citrus, Strawberry & Pomegranate and Apple & Elderflower tonics, priced £9.99.
Customer demand for larger bottles has seen Raisthorpe recently add a 500ml version to its original 200ml bottles which include its Pink Grapefruit and a Premium tonic.
