Fever-Tree and Cotswolds Distillery Prove Perfect Tonic For Airshow Guests

Published: 06 Mar 2020   updated: 09 Mar 2020


When it comes to staging one of the world's most exciting flying displays each year, the organisers of the Royal International Air Tattoo aren't afraid to mix it up, regularly bringing together a range of exciting aircraft to deliver mouth-watering aerial set pieces.

So, when it came to launching an exciting new enclosure for 2020, bringing on board mixer drink specialists Fever-Tree and spirit distillers Cotswolds Distillery seemed the perfect complement.

Named after the year the Air Tattoo was founded, 1971 offers visitors to the airshow at RAF Fairford on July 17-19 an opportunity to combine a stylish and contemporary hospitality experience with all the breath-taking excitement the event is renowned for.

With views of the static aircraft and a large 'top deck' overlooking the runway, 1971 guests will be able to enjoy both the comfortable seating and casual dining area downstairs plus an upstairs lounge and bar, offering branded drinks, cocktails and a selection of specialist gins with support from the award-winning and best-selling tonic specialists.

Philippa Hayday-Brown, the Air Tattoo's Head of Hospitality and Events said the Fever-Tree brand will help establish 1971 as a premium location offering a high-end experience. She added: "In much the same way as Fever-Tree goes to the ends of the earth to create the best-tasting mixers we also go to the ends of the earth each year, to deliver a truly memorable international airshow."
