It's no secret that Winchester is England's Christmas Capital. But did you know that Ginchester is England's Gin Capital? And when the two collide, you get a unique celebration of gin with a distinctive Christmas flavour!
We are thrilled to be bringing you the very first Ginchester Christmas Market in the majestic setting of the Guildhall Winchester.
This is truly a local event for local people and a chance to celebrate all that is great about the region's food and drink scene - naturally with a focus on gin!
But this is not your run-of-the-mill gin event.
As with the Ginchester Fête, we'll be sampling some fantastic gins but this is also a great opportunity to have some fun as we enter into the spirit of a festive Christmas Market.
Join us at one (or both!) of two sessions on Saturday 2 December and...
• Enjoy a complimentary festive gin drink on arrival
• Soak up the Christmas atmosphere...and gin
• Enjoy a G&T or gin cocktail at the Cabinet Rooms Gin Bar sponsored by Winchester Distillery
• Learn more about local gin production with the team from Winchester Distillery
• Meet your favourite local distillers, such as Gorilla Spirits, and stock up for Christmas
• Sample unique and unusal gins from further afield
• Pick up food and drink from local producers for your festive feasts
• Peruse crafts, arts and textiles for extra-special Christmas gifts
