Garibaldi-Highclere Castle Gin Reception

Enjoy Highclere Castle Gin cocktails and mix and mingle with Lord Carnarvon at a special reception at Garibaldi Savannah!

Garibaldi Savannah is delighted to host a special Highclere Castle Gin Reception on March 23. The reception will feature Lord Carnarvon, the 8th Earl of Carnarvon - whose family has lived at Highclere Castle, the real-life setting of Downton Abbey, for 400 years. Tickets are $125 per person and are currently available for purchase on Eventbrite and at Cocktail attire.

This exquisite evening will feature chef-prepared heavy hors d'oeuvres, Highclere Castle Gin cocktails, a special premiere of their Barrel Aged Gin and live music. Lord Carnarvon, who is the godson to her late Majesty Queen Elizabeth II, will mix and mingle with guests. He runs Highclere Castle and the surrounding 5,000-acre estate with his wife, Fiona, the Countess of Carnarvon. Together, they are developing Highclere Castle into a globally recognized heritage attraction.

In 2019, Lord and Lady Carnarvon partnered with American spirits entrepreneur Adam von Gootkin to launch the multi-award-winning Highclere Castle Gin and the awarded Highclere Castle Cigar. Lord Carnarvon and the Highclere Castle Gin team spent more than two years developing the gin using botanicals from Highclere's famous gardens. The Carnarvons worked in collaboration with England's oldest gin distillery to produce an exceptionally smooth, luxury spirit that is worthy of Highclere's history and pedigree.

Savannah is one of two cities Lord Carnarvon will visit in the United States. He will also be available to sign books at the reception.
