Paarl guesthouse and distillery collaborate to offer G&Tea Winter Weekends

The Light House Boutique Suites in Paarl has teamed up with Wilderer Gin to offer special G&Tea Winter Weekends in May, August and September 2018.

Guests are invited to experience a weekend at The Light House along with a special gin experience including Wilderer Gin cocktails and a live distillation process presentation.

“We are excited to be partnering with Wilderer, South Africa’s most awarded craft distillery,” says Darrol Buckton, GM of The Light House. “Johan Mönnig, its head distiller, will be giving insights into the production and concept of gin, while distilling a batch of The Light House’s own fynbos gin, live, for all guests to taste and enjoy.”

The first of the ‘G&Tea’ weekends is scheduled for 18-20 May, the second for 10-12 August and the third from 21-23 September. The weekends are dependent on a minimum booking of three rooms or six people.

The itinerary for the three weekends will be as follows: Friday evening will be for guests, in their own time, to explore Paarl’s restaurants; on the Saturday a special gin experience has been developed for guests to enjoy. This will include the live participative live distillation experience, three or four different gin cocktails and a full afternoon tea, followed in the evening by an informal light dinner at The Light House.
