Gin Blending

Celebrate Le Manoir’s 40th anniversary by creating your own highly refined bespoke gin. In this exclusive activity, the experts at Cambridge Distillery lead you on a journey through the aromatic gin-crafting process.

You’re in the best hands: Cambridge Distillery is world-renowned for its innovative philosophy, winning countless international awards for every gin it releases. Their most extraordinary product is Watenshi Gin, created from “the angel’s share”, the fraction of distilled spirit that escapes into the ether. Will Lowe, the distillery’s founder, unearthed a way to capture this heavenly spirit to create the most exclusive gin in the world, of which only 36 bottles are available each year. A tasting of this fresh, pure, crystal-clear gin is included at an indulgent four-course dinner that finishes your fascinating day in sublime style.

Includes: Tea and coffee on arrival, garden tour and gin blending, champagne and canapés, four-course dinner with gin tasting, accompanying wines, tea, coffee and petits fours.
