A visit to a silk mill, and the Bombay Sapphire gin distillery
We will explore Whitchurch Silk Mill, a Georgian water mill that still weaves fabrics using Victorian machinery - the oldest mill still weaving silk, in its original building. After lunch, we visit the nearby historic Laverstoke Mill which houses the Bombay Sapphire Distillery. This showcases the care, skill and artistry behind every drop of their gin.
