Clivedon and Bombay Sapphire

We had day out for the husband's birthday. First we went to Clivedon. We had a lovely wonder round the gardens, including a trip to the maze and a walk to the Thames!

We then drove on to the Bombay Sapphire distillery which is in Hampshire. It really is in a beautiful spot with the most amazing clear stream running through the mill. We spent about an hour and a half on our self-guided tour with the highlight being the opportunity to smell the various flavours used in  gin production. You received a card with the idea being that when a flavour proved appealing the appropriate number on the card would be punched. Once this exercise was completed the card could then be used to work out our ideal gin cocktail. For the girls and me as as the driver, this was a little pointless but it did tell me which of the two available virgin cocktails I’d like best. It was quite a lot of fun smelling the various flavours, some of which were utterly disgusting.

 After the tour we got a gin cocktail with non-alcoholic options or a take away g and t!
