Join us on this exciting excursion to the Bombay Sapphire Distillery in Hampshire – with free time in the beautiful City of Winchester for lunch beforehand.
After a morning departure by coach from the Essex area, we shall take you to the City of Winchester, which is also the County town of Hampshire.
Popular for its bustling shopping streets, Winchester is most well known for its eleventh century Cathedral and for the Great Hall which for over 700 years has housed the mysterious Round Table.
Winchester's many bars, traditional pubs and restaurants make eating out a pleasure, and there are pretty riverside walks past tranquil water meadows. And for a fabulous view of the city and surrounding area, take a stroll up to St Catherine's Hill.
After free time when lunch can be purchased, we shall transfer you by coach to the Bombay Sapphire Distillery. Here you can discover the artistry and heritage behind Bombay Sapphire at their state-of-the-art distillery, set astride the banks of the River Test. Go behind the scenes and discover how they infuse ten exotic botanicals from around the world into their famous gin.
Explore the Bombay Sapphire Distillery with a distillery host to guide you as you discover the ten exotic botanicals infused into every drop of Bombay Sapphire Gin in the Glasshouses with an insight into Heatherwick Studios’ inspired design. Your host will then help you navigate the Botanical Dry Room, a sensory experience to uncover your flavour preferences. Discover the rare vapour infusion distillation process which makes Bombay Sapphire gin so exquisite, before your host leaves you to enjoy a cocktail from their menu, selected using your flavour preferences. The tour lasts approximately 1½ to two hours.
Important: Laverstoke Mill is a working distillery so we insist that guests wear suitable footwear. Please do not wear open-toed shoes or high heels on the experience.
