From the 20th July, both the Bombay Sapphire Distillery at Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, England, and the Dewar’s Aberfeldy Distillery in Scotland will reopen to the public with adapted health and safety measures in place.
Visitors to both destinations can once again enjoy whisky tastings and gin cocktail masterclasses as well as guided tours, now operating at a reduced capacity.
With the health and safety of staff and visitors the top priority, facilities including the museum, bar and gift-shop areas have been carefully adapted with the addition of Perspex screens at till points, reduced door touchpoints and hand sanitisation stations throughout.
Temperature checks will be conducted on arrival and facemasks will be provided and must be worn at all times when exploring the distilleries to help promote the safety of both staff and visitors alike.
All visitors are asked to book in advance to avoid disappointment as tours and tastings are running at reduced capacity.
Anne Brock, Bombay Sapphire master distiller, said: “We’re absolutely thrilled to be reopening the Bombay Sapphire Distillery at Laverstoke Mill to the public.
“The health and safety of our visitors and staff are always our number one priority so we’ve been stringent about introducing new measures and procedures throughout the site to promote this.”
