A West Sussex Gin Journey

Trace the creation of a perfect G&T with Blackdown Gin and The Spread Eagle

The Spread Eagle Hotel and nearby Blackdown Artisan Spirits have come together to raise a glass to the British craft of gin making with a tour of the distillery and a unique insight into the gin-making process.

There will be plenty of time to taste the Sussex Dry Gin that the distillery produces and guests will learn to identify the unique Silver Birch sap - from the 40 acres of Silver Birch-rich woodland that surrounds the distillery - that makes this gin so distinct, and take home a gin-blending kit to put new-found knowledge to use

Full of the joys of gin, guests will be whisked back to the hotel for a gin cocktail at The Spread Eagle's Gin Bar. With more than 60 different gins - some more unusual than others - and 12 different tonics on offer, you can create your own gin cocktail, topped with a home-grown garnish from the hotel's garden.

What's included?

  • Overnight accommodation with full English breakfast
  • A delicious three course dinner
  • A personally selected gin cocktail
  • Gin tasting tour at Blackdown Distillery
  • A gin blending kit to take home
  • Return transport to Blackdown Distillery
  • Full use of the spa facilities & swimming pool
