Shakespeare Distillery is inviting Christmas revellers to party at ‘Judith’s’, the former home of Shakespeare’s daughter.

The independent artisan spirit producer opened their popular Judith’s School of Spirits at No 1 High Street in Stratford-upon-Avon town centre last October. It offers a range of experiences including Gin & Rum Tastings, Cocktail Masterclasses, or a mixture of both this Christmas. Guests can bring in their own catering or book a meal afterwards in town.

No 1 High Street occupies a fantastic retail and iconic location right in the heart of the town. Once home to Judith Shakespeare, daughter of William Shakespeare, the building is steeped in history. The cellar within the building is said to have been part of an early gaol known for a period from c1470 as The Cage.

Shakespeare Distillery is also offering personalised miniatures on their Stratford Dry, Rhubarb, Judith’s Pink Gin, Mulberry Liqueur, Limoncello and Orangecello 5cl bottles. Great as a Christmas gift, keepsake, special occasions, or corporate events, these are available to order online from the No 1 High Street store or the Distillery shop in Stratford. The front label can be customised along with a bespoke message to the side of the bottle.

Peter Monks, Director at Shakespeare Distillery said, “We’re delighted to launch our Christmas parties at ‘Judiths School of Spirits’ which is an ideal town centre location to kick off your evening festivities! We'll also happily recommend some fantastic local restaurants if revellers want to enjoy a meal afterwards!”

Parties can be booked for up to 50 people. Please call on 01789 336559 or email
