In 1571 William Slingsby discovered the unique properties of the natural spring water from Harrogate’s Tewit Well. His discovery brought visitors from all around to the wonderfully picturesque spa town. They came to ‘take the waters’ which were thought to have medicinal properties. To this day, people from across the globe still visit Harrogate to restore body, mind and soul by relaxing, indulging and socialising. If it had not been for Slingsby’s discovery, Harrogate would not be what it is today.
Inspired by this story, founders Marcus Black and Mike Carthy embarked on an adventure. They wanted to create a product that would celebrate this heritage and bring to life the essence and restorative nature of Harrogate. In 2014, the Spirit of Harrogate was born.
