Stratford upon Avon Topiary Gin Festival, Sun July 7

Shakespeare Distillery and Billesley Manor Hotel team up for this glorious annual gin-fest celebrating the best regional tipples on Sun July 7. Make mine a double, ta.

If you’re an artisan gin fan, this line-up is the one for you – so be sure to grab yourself a ticket!

Bask in the sunshine in the gorgeous 100-year-old Topiary garden of Billesely Manor Hotel in Stratford upon Avon and enjoy a relaxed afternoon sampling gin from six local regional UK distilleries.

Now onto the important part – the drinks…The six distilleries will include:

  • 2018 Muddy Award-winning Shakespeare Distillery (Stratford upon Avon)
  • Puddingstone Distillery, home of Campfire Gin (Tring, Herts),
  • Wood Brothers (Oxon),
  • Sovereign Spirits (Mansfield, Notts)
  • British Polo Gin (Bishop’s Norton, Glos)
  • & Locksley Distilling Co (Sheffield) –  all supported by Fever Tree.

These will be served alongside a selection of chef’s scrummy locally sourced food and fantastic live music throughout the afternoon with the return of last year’s talented Andrew James – winner of the Cotswold Musician Award – plus, female singer and acoustic duo, Three’s a Crowd, and popular local acoustic trio Wired.

Located in the heart of the UK’s best gin distilleries, it’s the perfect chilled Sunday afternoon and feel free to bring your own picnic blanket and parasols!

Tickets for ages 18+: £20 (plus booking fee) include a souvenir branded gin glass, Gin Menu detailing all flavours & cocktails available, plus a welcome Gin & Tonic supplied by Shakespeare Distillery. Distilleries will operate on a token system to make all drink payments quick and easy. Tokens are £2.50 each with two tokens paying for a measure of gin, garnish, and premium tonic; while three tokens will get you either a double-measure Gin & Tonic, or a fabulous cocktail,  eventbrite
