Our favourite place

Bombay Sapphire Distillery

Our Finance Administrator, Debbie, recommends this day out in for the adults! Take advantage of our Bombay Sapphire hotel package for a hotel night, gins in our lounge, breakfast, and more.

“Discovering the history of Bombay Sapphire and Laverstoke Mill with a host to guide you around the Dakin still house, glasshouses and grounds, is a great experience.”

“The gin cocktail masterclass is a lot of fun. You can attend an interactive mixology session and learn how to create cocktails with a gin expert, and then have a discovery experience and enjoy a drink in the Mill bar after.”

Distance from hotel: only a 21-minute drive.
