Herefordshire is one of the UK’s major agricultural county’s for alcohol production – whether it is apples for ciders, barley for beers or potatoes for spirits. Keeping this as the theme for the day, we commence with a visit to the Cathedral City of Hereford, where you can explore the city at leisure.
It is then time for ‘Ginspiration’; Chase is different to other distilleries, producing its spirits from potatoes grown on its own farm. You will discover William Chases’ story with over 20 years of local history, starting as a potato farmer to then producing the brand Tyrell’s crisps before finally diversifying in to the manufacturing of Chase gin & vodka.
The expert guide will talk you through everything from the traditional mashing, fermenting and distilling process, to finishing their bottles by hand.
Step outside the front door into their rolling potato fields & cider apple orchards to see the raw ingredients that go into the making of their spirits.
During the tour you’ll get to enjoy a full-sized GB G&T followed by the Chase Bar to enjoy a tutored tasting of a range of their award winning product & a zesty Pink Grapefruit G&T to finish. Afterwards, you’ll be able to browse the distillery shop & stock up on your favourite Chase Spirits.
