Gin for Breakfast – Business Event
1 November, 2016 @ 7:30 am - 9:30 am
Business men and women from across the New Forest and beyond will meet for a New Forest Breakfast on Tuesday 1 November. The addition of gin is not a sign of the times – but an introduction to one of the Forest’s latest and most exciting businesses.
From an old Victorian laundry on the backstreets of Bournemouth, entrepreneur and Conker Spirit founder, Rupert Holloway, has become Dorset’s first independent gin distiller. Beginning the journey only 3 years ago, after losing the love for his career as a chartered surveyor, Rupert had the lightbulb moment of producing a beautifully crafted spirit representative of his local landscape.
He will be speaking at the Business Breakfast, sponsored by The New Forest Business Partnership, taking us on the road which brought him to Conker – and the exciting path he has trodden as he has developed the product and the business.
His success is about spirit in every sense of the word – so there will also be a chance to taste his gin – its ok at 8am when it’s for business!
