Ladies Delight, Gin and Shopping Tour

Blue lightning, white satin, mothers ruin… however you refer to it there is no doubt that gin is the tipple of choice for many of us. This tour takes us to rural Hampshire and the former paper mill Laverstoke Mill, home of the Bombay Sapphire gin Distillery. Here we will see the care, skill and artistry behind every drop of gin produced. At each distillery you visit, there will be a guided tour from an expert and there will be a chance to sample the product. We also take a trip to Bicester Shopping Village, packed full of famous brands, we’ll be sure to bag a bargain.

COVID UPDATE : Current maximum group numbers at Bombay Sapphire Distillery are 24 passengers.

Day 2

Bombay Sapphire Distillery and return home

After hearty breakfast, explore the Bombay Sapphire Distillery with a guided tour where we learn about the history of gin, Laverstoke Mill, and Bombay Sapphire. We will discover the flavours of the botanicals and their sustainable provenance which make their gin so unique. Across the sprawling Victorian architecture, discover the vapour fusion distillation process in the Dakin Still House, wander through the Botanical Dry Room, and experiment with the aromas of the ten exotic botanicals used to make Bombay Sapphire.  Laverstoke Mill’s centrepiece is two magnificent intertwining glasshouses; A dazzling feat of architecture, the houses are constructed from over 700 individual panes of glass – no two are the same. No visit to a Distillery would be complete without a complimentary tipple in the Mill Bar.

COVID UPDATE : Current maximum group numbers at Bombay Sapphire Distillery are 24 passengers.

Please note the Bombay Sapphire Distillery does not open to groups over the weekend.
