Network with members of Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow Chambers of Commerce over a gin at the 1881 Distillery & Gin School at Peebles Hydro Hotel.
About this Event
Peebles Hydro Hotel is very excited to offer you the opportunity to network with other chamber members from around Scotland and be one of the first to try Scotland’s newest and largest residential gin school – 1881 at Peebles Hydro.
Enjoy a tour of the 1881 Distillery & Gin School, as well as a selection of afternoon refreshments and a delicious afternoon tea whilst in the company of Chamber members from Perth, Edinburgh and Glasgow.
This is an ideal opportunity to raise your business profile with those from outwith the region, and hopefully establish more useful business contacts too.
About 1881 Gin
From splash to sip. The site of the 1881 Gin School sits on what was once the original hotel swimming pool (a long, long, time ago). Lots has changed since then – these days you’ll find 26 individual copper stills neatly lined in rows and glass jars brimming with botanicals – but the same water still flows down from the hills and into the Hydro as it did 140 years ago.
In 1881 the Shieldgreen spring drew people to Peebles Hydro from all over the British Isles. They’d book in, relax, and ‘take the waters’, as part of the hydropathic craze which swept the country. Today, the draw is rather different: Shieldgreen now supplies the gleaming copper stills of our very own distillery and our attendant gin school. Many of the botanicals grown right here in our grounds and our very own tonic water, along with the gin, is trickled, nurtured and perfected by Peebles.
Click here to book your ticket and join us on Thursday 14th November from 3pm-6pm for G and Tea (Gin and Afternoon Tea). The Peebles Hydro team will provide the gin and a selection of afternoon refreshments, along with a tour of the distillery.
