Gothic Gin at Goodwood Revival for a Weekend of Iconic Celebrations and Vintage Treasures
Thursday, September 1, 2022
US gin brand Gothic Gin, a Double Gold award-winning gin in the internationally acclaimed 2022 San Francisco Spirits Competition, has been announced as an official partner of Goodwood Revival. This September, Goodwood Revival will host a trio of honorary celebrations including timeless classics from Ferrari and Austin, alongside celebrating motor racing icon Graham Hill. The event takes place from Friday 16 to Sunday 18 September.
This year’s event will include an educational and inviting lifestyle hub called the Revive and Thrive Village. The home of all things vintage and second-hand at the event, the hub will stage workshops, demonstrations, exhibitions and discussions that share the sustainable ‘Make Do and Mend’ approach of post-war Britain to breathe new life into pre-loved belongings.
Revival guests will be able to enjoy Gothic Gin pouring across the Goodwood Estate and at a luxury branded Airstream serving gin and tonics, Negronis, the French 75 and a menu of bespoke cocktails including the Gothic Escape, which features ginger beer, Angostura Bitters, fresh lemon and lime; and the Gothic Romance, which has raspberries, lemon juice, simple syrup, and a lemon twist.
“Goodwood Revival is an authentic and immersive celebration of vintage motorsport, aircraft, glamour, and sustainability.” said CEO and Founder, Chris Klug. “The unique taste of our internationally awarded spirit made from hand-selected, sustainably sourced ingredients makes us an ideal partner.”
Jonathan Gregory, Commercial Director at Goodwood said: “After their debut at the Festival of Speed in July, we’re thrilled that Gothic Gin will be joining us at the Goodwood Revival this September. The Revival’s ethos cements Goodwood’s position as a champion of the planet and its people, focusing on sustainable living and inclusivity, so Gothic Gin’s commitment to being a socially and environmentally responsible company is something that aligns perfectly with the event, as well as the wider estate.”

About the Goodwood Revival
The Goodwood Revival is the world’s greatest historic motor race meeting, and the only sporting event of its kind to be staged entirely in a period theme. More than just an unrivalled weekend of historic racing, it is an immersive celebration of a less disposable world, where “make do and mend” was a way of life rather than a casual slogan.
The Revival is, at its heart, a celebration of craftsmanship and sustainability, from an age when possessions were made to last and be cherished. It promotes a thoroughly modern ethos – to “reduce, reuse, repair, restore and recycle” – in the most authentic way possible. All the cars are original, having been lovingly maintained since new, many of the outfits have been handed down through generations, and even the retailers specialise in pre-owned artefacts – everything from clothes and accessories to automobilia and books.
It is, proudly, the world’s biggest and most glamorous second-hand event.
