Nestled in the heart of Hampshire, lies a quaint and peaceful city with a voracious appetite for gin. This year, for World Gin Day, the most enthusiastic of its citizens will be congregating in a quintessentially English celebration of this juniper spirit.
You'll see a very different side of Winchester at the Ginchester Fête!
With stalls manned by the gin hounds from the Green Man, Toscanaccio, Chococo, Parsonage Farm, Gorilla Spirits Co., Long Barn, Winchester Distillery and Cabinet Rooms, you'll be able to enjoy a couple of hours of gin madness all within the unique setting of the City Mill Winchester.
Who doesn't love a village fête? Especially when it's for grown-ups only and soaked in gin!
We'll have music and games and plenty of gin. You'll be able to meet Winchester Distillery's founder and distiller, Paul Bowler, as well as taste his superlative gin.
