Book Now

With the sun shining down on the elegant setting of our newly refurbished Wellingtonia Room, settle down for a summer afternoon learning about gin with Whitley Neill, with samples of their award-winning gins to try throughout the afternoon.

Begin with a welcome Gin & Tonic while learning about the history of gin and the brewery. Whitley Neill is an award-winning distiller and family who have been crafting spirits since 1762. Their gins are made from a 100% grain spirit that is steeped with botanicals prior to being distilled in a beautiful antique copper pot still called ‘Constance’ who is over 100 years old. Only the purest water is used and each of the nine botanicals is carefully selected to ensure that they are of the highest quality.

The team will then share their expertise and instruct you in the sampling of seven different Whitley Neill gins. You will then choose your favourite variety to be mixed as a full measure, to be enjoyed with a variety of delicious canapes.

Pepper salt beef with piccalilli on rye

Asian duck spring roll dipping sauce

Asian spiced feta marinated tomato (v)

Potato scone with cream cheese colcannon (v)
