The Worlds Largest Gin Collection
A HOTEL is hoping to set a world record for the biggest collection of gin under one roof.
A Guinness World Record judge will visit The Feathers in Woodstock on Friday to see if the collection of gins behind the bar is the world’s largest.
The hotel has been collecting gins for the past year after it was redecorated, picking them up from all over the world.
Manager Jeremy du Plessis said: “We are not too sure what the current record is but we know we are near it.
“There was never a conscious decision to go for the record. Everybody here enjoys gin.
“The more we have become involved in it, the more we have enjoyed it.
“There is a young brigade of people drinking gin now. It seems to have become a fashionable drink to be seen drinking again.”
After a year’s work, the Market Street hotel boasts 163 different types of gin and now many of the hotel’s guests come back to sup from the collection.
