GINFLUENCER Tour of Bombay Sapphire

Here at Hustle & Fox we have a love affair with The big smoke, but we also know there is nothing better than jumping on the train and heading out of London, especially when the sun is shining and there is a promise of a Gin cocktail at the other end.

On the 17th May Ember Inns invited a handful of instagram influencers to visit the Bombay Sapphire Distillery in Whitchurch, Hampshire on a 'GINFLUENCER' tour in association with Parent Apparel. In attendance, along with the team (Becks and Debs) from Parent Apparel, was Vicki from Inpolife, Kerri from Life with Ivy Coco, and Gayle from Hustle and Fox.

We were treated not only by the glorious sunny weather but by the stunning botanical glass house and open Gin Distillery, where inside Bombay Gin for the whole world is made - yes that’s right the whole world! 

The tour took us behind the scenes and we discovered  how they infuse ten exotic botanicals from around the world to make the gin, we saw the plants growing, smelt and tasted the herbs and spices and finally saw where...and well as our tour guide said;

 “ the magic happens “ 

We ended the tour followed by a cocktail tasting session in the amazing Empire room with Senior Global Ambassador for Bombay Sapphire, Sam Carter

Bombay Sapphire offer a number of different tours, from a Master class in making Gin Cocktails to a horticultural experience, we can’t recommend it enough. Did I mention there is a Bombay Sapphire bus that pics you up from the nearest train station and it's only an hour from London Waterloo! 

Some of the great cocktails made with Bombay Sapphire you can enjoy when you visit Ember Inns and others you can make at home - recipes are on the Bombay Sapphire website

Thanks so much for a great experience we will be back to visit again - there is a Gin Cocktail with our name on!
