Chester River Packet at the foot of High Street

The Royal Kent Gun and Whiskey club & the River Packet invite you to join us for a Chester River Nightcap. We won’t actually be moving from the dock but when you book “passage”, you will enjoy savory bites and receive:
• A tasting glass to take home
• Five wee drams of the Glenlivet range from the Founder’s Reserve all the way to the 21yr.
• A fine smoke from Ashton cigars
Bar open for business should you fall in love with any of the whiskies included in the tasting and want to buy a glass. Weather permitting, the upper deck of the Packet will be open for enjoying cigars.
Seating is limited. $40. Reserve tickets online at:
