At the heart of this year’s festival is an #indiewinch trail, sponsored by the Winchester BID IAG, which encourages people to prioritise independent businesses when planning their route. Participants can collect stickers in over a dozen independents in order to be in with a chance to win a special hamper of goodies from event sponsors Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands, who are based locally in Kings Worthy. 

Winchester Cocktail Week is organised by Spirits Envoy and sponsored by Bacardi Brown-Forman Brands, Cabinet Rooms, The Typeface Group, and Winchester BID’s Independents Advisory Group.
