A Collaboration with Shakespeare Distillery | Gin and Rum Festival

We are thrilled to co-host this event with our friends at Shakespeare Distillery.

Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or new to the world of gin and rum, this festival is the ideal setting to expand your palate and discover new favourites.

What to Expect | Gin and Rum Festival

Upon arrival, each guest will receive a welcome drink of either a Shakespeare Distillery Gin & Tonic or a Rum & Mixer, setting the tone for the afternoon.

Your ticket also includes a souvenir-branded Shakespeare Distillery glass and a detailed menu showcasing all the drinks available throughout the event. This way, you can plan your day, ensuring you don’t miss out on any events you’re eager to attend.

As you explore the festival, you'll find each distillery's stand brimming with fabulous drinks and cocktails available for purchase.

 If you find a particular spirit that takes your fancy, you can buy a bottle to take home with you and make it easier to enjoy your new favourite gin or rum long after the festival ends.

Food and Music | Gin and Rum Festival

A festival isn't complete without delicious food and great music; the Stratford Gin and Rum Festival is no exception. 

Our chef has crafted a selection of locally sourced foods that perfectly complement the array of spirits on offer. Enjoy these culinary delights as you wander through the garden or settle down for a picnic with your friends and family.
