Sailing, Gin and Sausages…

How do we get from sailing to sausages I hear you ask? Well, bear with us and read on!

Aberdeen Asset Management Cowes Week has a new sponsor from a Super Premium new brand of Gin, Chilgrove. Handcrafted using traditional methods and distilled with natural mineral water filtered through the very chalk Downs which surround Chilgrove (a sleepy Sussex hamlet); this fine London Dry Gin marries only the finest botanicals together with a neutral spirit distilled from grapes. It is this unusual relationship which gives Chilgrove Gin its sophisticated character, whilst the perfectly balanced elect of flavours, truly make it the gin for all seasons.

Solent Events will be working with Chilgrove Gin to help expose their brand during this world famous regatta and will be serving their superb Gin from our exclusive VIP area located in the heart of the event village. Adding only the finest mixers from Fever-Tree  or making into the most sublime cocktails, this will surely be a winning formula for apres sailing socialising in Cowes.

So what about the sausages? Well… would you believe that renown butcher O’Hagan’s of West Sussex are making a delicious Pork and Chilgrove Gin sausage! O’ Hagan’s pride themselves on having been pioneers in the Great British sausage revival of the 1980s, leading to a vast improvement in quality throughout the industry. O’ Hagan’s still adheres rigidly to founder Bill ‘O ‘Hagan’s principles, a quality which distinguishes the company to this day from all other sausage-makers.

You can therefore come and enjoy a fantastic day on the water and then come ashore to the best G&T in town followed by the Chilgrove Gin sausage served by our Chef. It’s not just the regatta atmosphere that will be sizzling! Put the dates in your diary now – 8th-15th August 2015 and maybe we’ll see you there.
