The Gin Train

Your first class gin tasting experience . . .

November 3rd, 10th & 17th

The Gin Train

The Severn Valley Railway in partnership with The Little Gin Company are delighted to welcome you aboard The Gin Train! 

Book: Kidderminster departures  Book: Bridgnorth departures

Join us for a Gin tasting experience, with a festive twist, on the Railway! This is a truly unique experience; travel through the spectacular Severn Valley in our 1936-built luxurious first class carriage (once hauled by the Flying Scotsman), whilst sipping gin cocktails and enjoying our informative, yet informal, overview of the gins you are tasting by professional staff. A journey fit for any gin lover.

From a love of all things Gin comes The Little Gin Company, a quirky mobile gin business from the neighbouring county of Warwickshire. Established by friends, Emma and Nicola in 2015, the juniper-mad duo love sharing their gin-filled experiences in as many ways as possible - mainly from their lovingly converted horse trailer gin bar - and now, on board a Severn Valley steam train!

Your tasting experience will include:
  • Welcome cocktail to get the tasting session started and the gin flowing as we leave the station!
  • Brief but informative overview of gin, tonic and the tasting experience. 
  • Tasting sequence of three artisan gins, comprising of different botanicals to offer a wide spectrum of tasting notes. 
  • All three gins on the tasting menu will be served neat or as mini G&T's in a tasting glass (if neat gin isn't for you). 
  • Professional staff will run the event, giving an overview of each gin and explaining the flavour profile and answering any questions as they are sampled. 
  • Following the tasting sequence, guests can choose their favourite gin from the sequence, served as a full G&T in a copa glass, with plenty of ice, premium tonic and complementary garnish.

The package includes:
  • Reserved, first class travel on a single train journey from Kidderminster to Bridgnorth, or Bridgnorth to Kidderminster.
  • Full day 'Freedom of the Line' ticket permitting travel before or after the tasting experience on our public service trains, so you can spend a whole day on the Railway. This ticket permits FREE entry into The Engine House at Highley if you have time. And remember, we have pubs at both Bridgnorth and Kidderminster too!
