Queues for petrol, politicians exchanging insults, grey skies and rain. It’s the perfect recipe for making Brits miserable. What’s needed is a stiff drink and somewhere to escape all the madness! The good news is we know of a solution, and it’s the brilliantly timed 6 O’clock Gin Package at De Vere Tortworth Court.
We have a saying in the UK, “When it rains, it pours”, and one look outside the office windows shows just how true it is. If you read the headlines in the UK press, you’ll see thousands of British motorists fighting for an inch as they try to grab what they believe are the last remnants of fuel in the built-up urban areas where they live.
Yet, in other parts of the country, life goes on as usual. In my opinion, people need somewhere to go (providing they have fuel), to escape the madness, clear their heads and if they’re so inclined, have a drink to help calm those frayed nerves.
Fortunately, there is a solution at hand, and it’s one that won’t break the bank. It comes courtesy of De Vere Tortworth Court who’s partnered with local distillery 6 O’clock Gin to offer gin connoisseurs the ultimate staycation with their exclusive gin package for two.
What you get with the 6 O’clock Gin package
De Vere Tortworth Court’s 6 O’clock Gin package for two includes a stay in a superior room, a lavish three-course dinner in the 1853 Restaurant and a delicious breakfast the following morning.
On arrival, guests will find generous measures of 6 O’clock Gin in their room. These can be taken to the bar, where the mixologists will serve up a refreshing G&T or gin cocktail. The package also includes an afternoon tour of the 6 O’clock Gin Distillery, located a short drive from the hotel. At the distillery, gin lovers will get a behind the scenes opportunity where they can learn the techniques and secrets that go into the production of their artisan gins and liqueurs, and of course, sample a tipple or two.
6 O’clock gin has a superb range of smooth artisan gins, which have been handcrafted in small batches. The gins have been made using well-honed traditional skills and use on the best natural ingredients. If you are wondering why they are called 6 O’clock gin, the name was inspired by the long-held family tradition of a G&T at 6 O’clock, something that still takes place today at the distillery located on the outskirts of Bristol.
