Who's up for a "Vineyard Crawl"?

There's now a map that shows the locations of Britain's vineyards and gin distilleries!

Britain now has over 763 vineyards, with over 260 of these established in the last five years, and over 440 distilleries, with 80 new ones opening last year, meaning there are double the amount than five years ago. But how would one go about navigating from one to the next on a massive grape and juniper berry fueled adventure? Well, thankfully there's a map!

It might look sparse right now, but there's plenty more locations coming soon!

The good people at the Wine and Spirit Trade Association has assembled an interactive map showing distilleries and vineyards that offer some sort of visitor interaction be it a tour, a tasting experience or a full out dining experience. Only recently released more locations are being added to it as time goes by which is an excellent thought, the more the merrier.

Click on a pin to find out more about that location. Grapes for wine, and little bottles for gin, duh!

  • Already done Debbie bolney and a couple of others down South. A friend of mine does promotion for Debbie's amoungst others. English wine is very good, made and grown here. British wine is crap, it's made from imported grape juice. That is the simple difference 🍷
