A DISTILLERY is celebrating after winning a converted accolade for its Yorkshire Tonic.

Raisthorpe Distillery, in Wharram, near Malton, has won a Great British Food Award for its Pink Grapefruit Tonic in the fruit juice and mixers category.

The Great British Food Awards highlights the finest artisan food and drink from across the UK, with celebrity judges, including The Hairy Bikers, Michel Roux Jr and Raymond Blanc.
