YORK Gin has plans to expand and open a shop at York Railway Station.

The award-winning York company wants to move into the former West Cornwall Pasty Shop in the station concourse.

York Gin bosses have applied to the City of York Council for an alcohol licence for the site.

The company already has a retail premises in Pavement, York.

The Press understands that if approved, York Gin will take on the lease for the shop at York station.

Pete McNichol, co-founder and commercial director of York Gin said: “We hadn’t really thought about a shop in the station before but it’s fantastic that LNER are trying to give the station a local feel, and encouraging independent companies like York Gin to establish themselves in the station.

"It would really give the station a truly ‘York’ feel. We look forward to hopefully receiving a positive decision on our application in the coming weeks.”

The company applied to City of York Council for the premises licence on April 1.

People can make comments in writing on the application before April 30 by contacting: City of York Council Licensing Services, Hazel Court, EcoDepot, James Street, York, YO10 3DS.
