Adding even more Bestival spirit to proceedings, Rob & Josie have teamed up with lauded Bristolian micro-distillery, Psychopomp, to create R&J’s Gin. Craft-distilled especially for the gin festival, R&J’s Gin is inspired by travel, using botanicals Rob & Josie have encountered around the world, including a crack of black pepper from Jaipur in India, the fragrance of Italian Amalfi lemons and Ibizan herbs.
