We’ve joined forces with our friends at The Old Stocks Inn – a boutique hotel in Stow-on-the-Wold – to offer a special Cotswolds Distillery Experience.
The package gives Old Stocks’ guests the chance to combine their stay with a tour of our distillery, sampling a selection of our spirits and finding out more about what we do.
We invited Pete Simpson – deputy manager and bar extraordinaire at The Old Stocks Inn – to give us an insight into what inspired the partnership, and to let us in on his favourite Cotswolds Distillery cocktail recipe:
“We’ve worked closely with the Cotswolds Distillery since we opened our doors, back in 2015. From the very start of the Old Stocks journey, we knew we wanted to source outstanding local suppliers and the Distillery fits the bill perfectly.
We are both well known for attention to detail in all aspects of our businesses, and this is reflected in the products we both sell. So, joining forces and giving our guests the chance to combine their stay at the Old Stocks with a Tour & Tasting session at the Cotswolds Distillery made perfect sense.
Working at the Old Stocks, I’ve always admired the Distillery’s use of natural processes, as well as their use of local produce and the desire they have to reflect the heritage of the Cotswolds in spirit form.
We use Cotswold Distillery spirits in a lot of our cocktails here at the hotel and restaurant, and our customers are always impressed with the quality.”
The Old Stocks’ Whisky Sour
"Simplicity and fresh ingredients – a good whisky like the Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky has the ability to stand up to bold flavours like citrus, as used in a classic whisky sour."
- 50ml Cotswolds Single Malt Whisky
- The juice of a lemon
- 30ml sugar syrup
- 1 egg white
Shake all ingredients with ice for about 10/15 seconds to emulsify the egg white, strain over ice into a rocks glass, garnish with a twig lemon and a dash of Angostura bitters.
The Old Stocks’ Cotswold Distillery Experience includes a tour of the Cotswold Distillery; one night’s stay at the Old Stocks Inn midweek, with a signature gin or whisky cocktail in the hotel bar, plus a three-course À la Carte dinner in the Old Stocks’ double AA Rosette awarded restaurant.
