Gin tasting onboard our heritage diesel hauled train.

Please note that this event is entry by advanced booking only. This event is not suitable for anyone under the age of 18. Please arrange suitable transport home, do not drink and drive.

In partnership with The Gin Bothy, the Caledonian Railway invites you for a very special experience. Travel through the Angus Countryside onboard a heritage diesel hauled train whilst sampling a selection of premium spirits, hand-crafted in the Angus Glens of Scotland. Infused with tradition, but with a contemporary twist.

Enjoy the gin you have been sampling? Bottles of The Gin Bothy's hand-crafted gins will be available to purchase from the bar once the train has arrived back at Brechin.

Important: All seats are arranged in tables of four - if you book three or four seats, you will be seated together, if you book two or singles, you will may be seated with another party. If you are part of a group that is spread over more than one booking, please let us know once you have booked to ensure that you are all sat together on the day. If you do not contact us, your group may not be sat together.
