Forest news


Guests visiting our Blackwood Forest location will now have the chance to try a delicious new cocktail designed exclusively for Forest Holidays by our friends at Bombay Sapphire.

The cocktail, aptly named ‘The Blackwood’ is now on sale at the location and features Martini Rosso, Vermouth and cranberry juice, together with smooth Bombay Sapphire gin, and is set to bring a touch of elegance and style to a stay in the forest.

The Blackwood was designed exclusively for Blackwood Forest, which is located just seven miles from the Bombay Sapphire gin distillery, creating the perfect partnership.

Guests may enjoy this exclusive cocktail as well as Bombay Sapphire’s signature cocktail, The Laverstoke, in the Forest Retreat or al fresco on the retreat’s terrace overlooking the forest. Both cocktails are priced at just £7.95.

Sales & Marketing Director of Forest Holidays, Jill Grinsted said: “At Forest Holidays, we make a point of forging partnerships with local firms and suppliers. To celebrate our partnership with Bombay Sapphire and the close proximity of the famous Laverstock Mill distillery, we thought that a special Blackwood Forest cocktail, designed exclusively for Forest Holidays, would provide a welcome touch for our guests served alongside our locally sourced real ales, ciders and other drinks.”
