"From patrolling the streets of Sangin to crawling into Insurgent underground tunnel networks in the mountains of Afghanistan".
Join us at East Chase Distillers for a raw and personal account of our co-founders life within UK Special Forces - over a glass or two of Heritage Gin.
"Richie's talk is difficult to do justice with words. He details his journey from Royal Marines Commando training, to his first tour with the Marines in Afghanistan, then selection for the Special Boat Service and to the founding of East Chase with Luke. Richie's story is exhilarating, fascinating, deeply impactful and raw; told with honesty, openness, and humour throughout. His story serves as a shining example of how challenges, both physical and mental, can be overcome, and left everyone in the room feeling equal parts awed and inspired". - Nathan M.

Evening with Gin and nibbles
My wife bought this event for me as a Christmas present, what a fabulous gift. Tasted a selection of top quality Gins with mixers recommended by Charlie. I have got to say these guys have made some of the best Gins I have tasted, and still enjoying the ones I bought on the night. Thank you Richie for the talk about the Special Forces. Total respect and gratitude.
A great evening, beautiful surroundings and the Gin was fantastic! Richie’s account was funny at times, somber at others - wholeheartedly recommend.
Exceeded expectations all round ! Gin was delicious , food platters too. Tales were enlightening and interesting. Would definitely recommend this evening , well worth booking. Thank you.
Excellent talk, fascinating to learn about the selection process for SBS. Great food and drink served. Very well organised. Some more about the Gin Distillery, their processes and influences regarding what Botanicals they decided on.
