Highclere Castle is also known as the ‘real Downton Abbey’

Open for residents of the US, the contest was launched to celebrate the upcoming motion picture release of the third Downton Abbey film.

Highclere Castle became internationally renowned as the filming location for the popular TV series Downton Abbey. The show depicts extravagant parties and class divides, solidifying the castle’s image as a centre of aristocratic refinement.

The winner will receive a three-day, two-night trip for two to Highclere Castle in September. The trip includes airfare, accommodations, ground transportation, a behind-the-scenes tour of Highclere Castle and the estate, and tickets to an invitation-only VIP cocktail party hosted by Lord and Lady Carnarvon, the residents of Highclere Castle.

Highclere Castle Gin was launched in 2019 by the eighth Earl and Countess of Carnarvon, and American spirits entrepreneur Adam von Gootkin.

The gin is distilled at Langley distillery, one of England’s oldest gin distilleries, and crafted from botanicals sourced from the estate of the Castle, including citrus from the Victorian-era orangery and lavender planted in the ninth century by the Bishop of Winchester.

Open for entries from May 29 to July 30, the contest is available to US residents aged 21 and above.

People can enter the contest by submitting their email address on the contest website. The chance to win does not require a purchase.

A random entry will be selected on 31 July 2024.

Earlier this year, Highclere Castle gin sponsored the Carnarvon Stakes horse race.
