Hooting Owl x York RLFC

York RLFC are delighted to welcome Hooting Owl Distillery as a Club Partner for the 2024 season.

The gin distillery joins the Club on a one year contract.

The Hooting Owl logo will be proudly displayed on the sleeves of the York RLFC warm-up shirts and the business will feature as a Host Partner for the Club's exclusive members only society - White Rose Club.

Hooting Owl is a local artisan distillery that produces around 1,000 bottles and makes over 137 gins, eight rums, two vodkas, bourbons and brandy.

On the new partnership, Hooting Owl Founder, Dom M'benga, said:

"We are over the moon to be supporting York RLFC, we are joining at a time when our business is starting to blossom and grow and are very excited about the Clubs plans for the future and its growth.

"Hooting Owl Distillery is currently based at Barmby Moor House in the East Riding of Yorkshire.

"As part of our growth plans, we are moving into the City of York and hope to become a must visit venue in the city with our new Distillery, Speakeasy Bar and Function Room. "We feel that to be a part of the makeup of the City and community we must partner with one of the cities sports clubs, when we looked at our options we felt that York RLFC have a vision for the future, one that is already bearing fruit.

"It is inclusive and forward thinking, yet also keeping its traditions and the history alive, we feel that we have the same ethos."

York RLFC Chairman, Clint Goodchild, added:

"We are so excited to be partnering with such a community driven business.

"Hooting owl is as proud to be Yorkshire as York RLFC and I can't wait to have their brilliant range of spirits available on match days for all to enjoy."


"This is a partnership born through likeminded ethics and a passion for excellence. I look forward to a bright future ahead as both our brands continue to grow and expand."
