Reasons for trip

We both love Bombay Sapphire gin so decided to book a guided tour rather than the “self discovery” tour. We were taken around most areas of the distillery and told all about the history of Bombay gins.There was plenty of opportunity to ask questions and you were allowed to take photos.

We particularly enjoyed the interactive session whereby you had the chance to sniff all the different botanical ingredients such as juniper berries, cassis bark, liquorice & coriander, to name but a few. You had to mark your favourites on a card & the results were used to determine which cocktail would suit you best. You then were offered a cocktail based on your selection which was included in the entry price. We also liked seeing all the different shape & design of the bottle which has changed over the years.

Although there were many areas accessible for people with mobility issues and a lift instead of using the stairs there was a lot of standing still whilst the guide explained each part of the distillery process etc, which may not suit everyone.

The setting was lovely and the included cocktail was a bonus. A non alcoholic cocktail was also offered and if you chose that option you got to take a miniature bottle of Bombay Sapphire & a bottle of tonic home which was a nice touch!

Sadly we didn’t have enough time to explore all the outside areas surrounding the distillery plus it was threatening to rain but there were many places you could walk around as it is situated in a countryside environment.
