WHITCHURCH SILK MILL & BOMBAY SAPPHIRE GIN DISTILLERY, HAMPSHIRE
Thursday 25 April 2019

A visit and tours of Whitchurch Silk Mill and Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery.

Whitchurch Silk Mill is the oldest silk mill in the UK still operating in it's original building. This gem of industrial heritage is in beautiful rural Hampshire It is a Georgian water mill that still weaves silk using 19th century machinery It has produced costumes for Cate Blanchett and Nicole Kidman and hats for the film Titanic and the TV show Larkrise to Candleford.

Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery is located in a Mill at Laverstoke, which has been in existence since at least 903 AD and official records show that Laverstoke Mill was a corn mill in the Doomsday Book. In 1719 it was leased to a French Huguenot called Henry Portal who converted it to make the finest quality hand-made paper. In 1724 he gained a contract to supply bank note paper to the Bank of England which continued until 1963.

Then in 2010 Bombay Sapphire took over the Mill and developed it into today's distillery. Our tour ends with a visit to the spectacular Botanical Glasshouses and upon departure we will be able to enjoy a free cocktail. (Alcoholic or non-alcoholic)
