Visitors turned out to enjoy sparkling wine and gin made in the county on Saturday (June 16) when the Sussex Gin & Fizz Festival took place in Lewes.

The event, which is organised by Lewes District Council and is now in its second year, ran at the town’s Southover Grange Gardens.

Nine gin brands and seven sparkling wine producers exhibited, including Plumpton College, Rodmell-based Breaky Bottom, Crowborough’s Tom Cat Gin and Chailey-based Generation Distillers. There was also a programme of free talks and live music.
