To the south west of the New Forest lies the town of Christchurch. This town used to be part of Hampshire but in 1974 became part of Dorset. It's here within the curiosity shop called 'Christchurch Confectioner' that you will now find Explorer's Gin.
Sally and Lloyd run this wonderful shop and the back wall contains the largest selection of small batch gins that I have ever seen! They also host Gin tasting evenings, where several gins are tasted together alongside a mystery guest gin. Make sure you book in advance as these are hot tickets.
Did you know that Christchurch used to be called Twynham but this changed following the construction of the priory in 1094.
