After taking 3 years to perfect, Cheltenham Gin is a wonderful new cloudy gin inspired by Cheltenham Racecourse.
Each bottle of Cheltenham Gin contains a unique blend of botanicals, including fresh zest from Spanish oranges and limes and benefits from a double distillation process to create a gin with a very refined, smooth and elegant palate.
The wonderful fresh, clean start continues to deeper spices on the mid-palate, adding length and complexity.
The wait is over! The Home of Jump racing, Cheltenham Racecourse, kicks off the 2018/2019 season this October with its traditional Showcase fixture commencing procedures. The two day meeting takes place on Friday 26th October and Saturday 27th October, 2018.

RACENIGHT, FEATURING HUNTER CHASE RACING
Friday 3 May 2019
It was a huge Saturday for Cotswold racehorse trainers today as nine races were won across the cards at Ascot, Haydock and Huntingdon winning a total of £252,772 in prize money!
Nigel Twiston-Davies kept up his incredible form winning the valuable Grade 1 Betfair Chase at Haydock with Bristol De Mai by a monstrous 57 lengths over his nearest rival Cue Card under Daryl Jacob. This was the yard's second winner of the day after Count Meribel won the opener at Ascot.
Slad based Tom George also notched up a valuable double as 16/1 shot Sir Valentino won the Shawbrook Handicap Chase at Ascot after an earlier success with Clondaw Castle at Huntingdon.
There was also a double for Clapton on the Hill based Ben Pauling at Haydock and Ascot with Delire D'Estruval and Nestor Park both enjoying close victories.
Fergal O'Brien, who shares the Grange Hill Gallops with Nigel Twiston-Davies, continued his good form as Chase The Spud completed a neat round of jumping on heavy ground Betfair Handicap Chase at Haydock under Paddy Brennan.
There were further victories for Jonjo O'Neill and Kim Bailey at Huntingdon with Compadre and Silver Kayfe both edging victories under Killian Moore and Mike Hamill respectively.
