The Ginchester Fête

About

Welcome to Ginchester! Nestled in the heart of Hampshire lies the quaint village of Ginchester, the ancient capital of Gin. Now in its fourth year, the annual Ginchester Fête is the region's quirkiest celebration of the juniper spirit. It takes place on World Gin Day in the breathtaking setting of the Great Hall Winchester, a medieval banquet hall used by Kings and Queens of yore.

Sip your G&T under King Arthur's Round Table. This is a unique event aimed at real gin lovers. It's a chance to celebrate all that is great about the region’s food and drink scene – naturally with a focus on all things gin! We will be showcasing a veritable menagerie of local gins from Bombay Sapphire (made down the road!), Gorilla Spirits, Winchester Distillery, Smith & Weston and more.

There are three sessions available:
12-2.30pm
3-5.30pm
6-8.30pm

A Unique Event: This is not your run-of-the-mill gin event. Yes, we’ll be sampling some fantastic gins but the Ginchester Fête is also a great opportunity to have some fun as we enter into the spirit of a quintessential English summer fête.
