The 'Solo' range will be an Official Supplier of the 2019 UCI Road World Championships running from September 21-29. Spectators can sample the range of refreshing tipples from the tournament's multiple bar venues throughout the week, and from the Spirit of Harrogate experience store on Montpellier Parade. Solo will also be available to purchase in store after the races too.

Solo has been made using award-winning Slingsby Gin and includes Slingsby London Dry with Indian Tonic Water - a signature classic made with locally sourced botanicals.

Co-Founder of Spirit of Harrogate, Mike Carthy, said: “We’re delighted to be launching our first ready to serve drinks brand and thrilled that Solo will be the Official Supplier for such a prestigious sporting event. We can’t wait to welcome the thousands of attendees and world’s best cyclists to our hometown.

"I’ll certainly be there cheering on the sports men and women who are competing as they race through the heart of Harrogate - with a Solo in hand of course. Solo is something we’ve worked incredibly hard on and we can’t wait for visitors to trial our unique flavours during the event.”
