Jump On the Gin Wagon and Blaze a Trail to South West France

Gin is making an amazing comeback in the UK. Our love affair with this sultry spirit is enjoying a wonderful revival by people of all ages. The birth of small batch boutique gins means there is now a gin for each and everyone of us. We are really enjoying the fun of finding our perfect tipple.  So making sure that you have gin in France when you are on holiday, is very important!



Gin Appreciation at Bijou Barn

Situated in South West France, Bijou Barn is a spacious barn with sophisticated charm just waiting to become your home from home for your summer holiday.

We love gin and have spent much time sipping and savouring this very special spirit. We are always on the hunt for new flavours and decided to offer a gin appreciation experience for our guests who come to visit our holiday rental in the scenic and unspoilt Lot region.

Any guests who are interested in gin appreciation, will begin by learning about the history of gin.  Then we move on to the different ways of making gin – your London Drys, Old Tom and that Bathtub gin is not where you have to sit to drink it……although we do have a place for that too!


We also try to answer that all-important question of how to find your favourite gin with 3 tastings……and all this from the comfort of our holiday rental – gintastic!

It doesn’t matter whether you have booked Bijou Barn as a holiday rental or you have opted for a more tailor-made trip with Bijou Bespoke, this gin appreciation can be scheduled into your stay with us.
