Still very much the younger sibling to beer and wine, the last few years have seen distillers appear across the National Park. 

Enjoy ‘Sussex dry gin’ from Blackdown, nestled in the heart of Blackdown Hill and taking inspiration from the botanicals of the surrounding mixed woodlands. 

Or why not try Chilgrove’s ‘Signature Edition’ gin, distilled with natural mineral water filtered through the chalky soils of the South Downs? 

Whatever it is you’re drinking, you can be sure it will be the South Downs in a glass.


"The Downs...too much for one pair of eyes, enough to float a whole population in happiness."
