Whilst you listen to the talk taste a variety of gins and delicious enjoy food prepared in our Railway Restaurant.”
William Chase had been farming potatoes for 20 years, mostly supplying supermarkets as a commodity, when he decided to change direction. He wanted to remain in farming and produce a great tasting product he could make from potatoes. William was hit one day with the eureka moment to turn his potatoes into chips. He spent 2002 travelling the world to source the equipment and recipe to make potato chips. By the summer, “Tyrrells” was born.
As Tyrrells grew, he was searching for the next step. In 2004 whilst travelling in the USA, looking for packaging equipment for the chips, William stumbled on a small distillery making potato vodka and thought this would be a great new chapter to life, and Chase was born!
Tickets are limited and now on sale for £20 per person. This includes a gin and tonic on arrival, talk, samples, meal and exclusive 10% OFF Chase spirits offer.
