Bombay Sapphire Distillery
Bombay Sapphire’s heritage begins in 1761 when Thomas Dakin purchased a site in Warrington, England, with the intention of distilling gin. In 1831, the Dakin family purchased a site and adapted it to separate the exotic botanicals from the neutral grain spirit, capturing the flavours of the botanicals in the vapour – an artisanal distillation process now known as Vapour Infusion, and still faithfully used by Bombay Sapphire today.
Book a tour and a distillery host will guide you around the distillery where you can find out more about the history and how their gin is made, or try one of their Gin masterclasses. Only 40 minutes drive from the hotel.
Greyfriars Vineyard and winery is located on the sunny south-facing chalk slopes of the Hog’s Back at Puttenham, and just a 15-minute drive from the hotel. The original vineyard was planted in 1989 and since 2010 they have expanded the area under the vine to almost 50 acres on three sites focusing on producing stunning English Sparkling Wine.
Why not book one of their Tours or Tasting events via their website or visit one of the many free open days that they hold during the growing season. They have a shop on site where you can purchase their award-winning sparkling wine. They also offer limited releases of both still and sparkling wines through the cellar door that cannot be purchased anywhere else!
