Downton Gin & Music Evening


For our regular ‘First Friday’ meeting on July 7th we are teaming up with Romsey Rugby Club to welcome Hugh Anderson, founder of Downton Distillery, to their lovely new clubhouse to talk us through his love of spirits and their famous Explorer Gin.

Your ticket includes three drinks made with Explorer: Firstly, neat to taste the botanicals in the product; then a classic G&T made to your own recipe; and finishing with a southside cocktail. The full-service bar, run by the team from the Cocky Anchor pub in Romsey, will be open and accepting card payment only.

The Club’s chef, Adrian, will provide snacking charcuterie for all our guests through the gin talk, and then we have the super-talented Austyn Brown and his acoustic guitar seeing us through to close.


Doors open 17:30 for the early birds and Chamber members for ‘First Friday’ drinks, followed by:
Event starts 19:00
Gin talk and tasting with charcuterie from 19:30
Austyn Brown on guitar from 21:30
Bar closes 23:00
