Host & Everything Else

Please Note: Laverstoke Mill is a working distillery so you must wear suitable footwear. Open-toed shoes or high heels are not permitted. 

The Bombay Sapphire Distillery promotes responsible drinking and as such if you want to make the most of your time at Laverstoke Mill we recommend using public transport to get to the distillery. However if you are driving, instead of a complimentary cocktail they can offer a range of alcohol free drinks that you can enjoy instead. 

I plan to catch the Number 76 bus from Basingstoke Station, why not meet me there, I will confirm bus times nearer to the event, We'd need to be on a bus around 1pm, to get there for the start of our session.
