We walked over to the red brick buildings with our usual positive ‘it’s definitely not going to rain’ attitude and just about made it indoors before the heavens opened. We were given a map of the buildings and then left to our own devices. This felt quite freeing as it meant I could run around and touch as many things as I wanted.
|The little ear piece thingys could tell you more about the distillery if you were so interested.|
|Proof the sun did come out after a while!|
Then it was time for my other favourite part of the tour. The bar! It’s here that you hand the bartender your aroma map and they recommend a cocktail for you for free! I had the Laverstoke, a heavenly mix of:
• Martini Bianco - one whiff of which took me right back to my teen years!
• Elderflower cordial
• Fever-Tree ginger ale (cos duh! middle class)
• Mint sprigs
• Ginger root
• Beefeater gin…… syke! Not really obvs its Bombay you use, loony.
Honestly even if you aren’t a mahoosive gin drinker I’d highly recommend this as it was scrumptious. I liked it so much I had a second one which only cost a fiver. I may have been in Cambridge too long but to me that’s actually quite a good price for a cocktail. If it was a blisteringly lovely day I could easily have spent a few more hours here and fingers crossed will do just that if I go back in the summer months.
Drink responsibly blah blahdiddy blah et cetera.
