As you know we love a gin here at Parent Apparel. So when the lovely people at Ember Inn’s invited us to visit the Bombay Sapphire Distillery in Hampshire and bring some GINFLUENCER friends and fans with us, we jumped at the chance!
In attendance, along with the Parent Apparel team (Becks and Debs) was the lovely 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.
Ember Inns serve some of their own very gin inspired cocktails, one of our favourites is the Raspberrytonica. Perfect for a summer’s day!

If you fancy visiting book your tour at the beautiful historic Laverstoke Mill in advance they have an array of distillery experiences including self-discovery or hosted like we did experiences as well as cocktail masterclasses. We loved it. Plus it was a hour from London and you can get the Bombay Sapphire shuttle bus from Overton and Micheldever train stations.
