Business leaders sample the local tipple

Evans Jones Surveyors and Planning Consultants has hosted the Ultimate Gin and Beer Experience for business leaders.

The evening involved sampling the locally produced tipple at Sibling Distillery/Battledown Brewery, Dowdeswell Park, Cheltenham.

Representatives including Cheltenham College, Harrison Clark Rickerbys, Hazlewoods, University of Gloucestershire, Crowe Clark Whitehill, Roberts Limbrick Architects, Knights LLP and Willans Solicitors enjoyed a tour of the distilling and brewing facilities.

Then it was time to put on lab coats and take part in the Gin Lab workshop where they each made a bottle of gin to take home, with their own unique blend of botanicals.

Battledown Brewery Tap Beers and a variety of drinks from the Gin Bar were served.

Ian Eggleton, Evans Jones' director of building and access consultancy, said: "We always try to do something a bit different in the midst of winter when the local business scene tends to be quiet. It was great that the event was so well supported and it was a great opportunity to catch up with many of our supporters from local businesses."
