Watercress Line

Hampshire’s first Gin Train sells out in 10 minutes

Sponsored by Fever-Tree and in partnership with Winchester Distillery and Pulpo Negro, the Watercress Line is hosting a first-time unique experience on Saturday 5 May, where gin lovers can enjoy cocktails created with the Distillery’s famous Twisted Nose Gin, appropriately made with locally grown watercress. The excitement doesn’t stop there, as guests can also enjoy an array of tantalising authentic Spanish tapas followed by a mouth-watering main course from Hampshire's legendary Pulpo Negro, all experienced onboard a nostalgic steam train.

With the popularity of gin, we expected the event to be popular, but we are blown away by the speed that people snapped up tickets.
Guests will board the steam locomotive Gin Train and enjoy an evening of fun, chatter, laughter, gin and food. At the end of the evening, guests will be able to purchase a selection of gin from Winchester Distillery, and return home with their keepsake glass.
Tickets, at a cost of £75 per person, include three cocktails, a two-course meal and two return journeys to Alton from Alresford.
