Watercress Line

The Juniper Express Rides Again

The popularity of the first Watercress Line Gin Train resulted in tickets being sold out within two minutes for its return to the railway last Friday (29.06.2018). And boy did it exceed all expectations.

The Watercress Line, in partnership with Winchester Distillery and Pulpo Negro, gave guests on newly-named ‘Juniper Express’ a truly unique adventure, steaming through the rolling Hampshire countryside, sipping gin cocktails and enjoying a delicious two course meal, all experienced onboard a historic steam train.

Visitors enjoyed three delicious gin cocktails crafted with local botanicals and Fever-Tree mixers. The drinks were accompanied by authentic Spanish tapas and followed by a mouth-watering main course from Alresford's much loved Pulpo Negro restaurant.

Tickets were priced at £75 per person and included a branded keepsake glass for guests to take home, three cocktails from Winchester Distillery, a two course meal from Pulpo Negro and two return journeys from Alresford to Alton by steam.
