This is one of the few spirits festivals where you will get to meet and talk to the leading distillers in our region (and beyond) about their products; Gin, Vodka, Rum, Whiskey etc. Not only sample and buy but have a relaxed drink in a spectacular 13th Century stunning church built like a Cathedral.

Full programme of talks, tastings, demonstrations and workshops.

Exhibitors will include Burleighs Gin, Two Birds Spirits and Old Vodka, who will be showcasing a range of alcoholic spirits including vodka, gin and whisky, as well as other local produce such as alcoholic chocolates and coffees.
