  • The gin is amazing here. Had a great time on the tour. Hannah did a great job taking us through the history of gin to getting to know everyone at the end of the tour. A+!
  • I enjoyed the tour and thought it was good value for money at £10 pre booked online. It's a very small place under a hotel and an ingenious way of using the space. Our group of ten had a talk about the history of gin and passed around pictures and jars of ingredients to smell. We saw some of the varieties of gin that they make on the premises. We then went into the actual distillery and had a little chat about the process which was interesting. We sat in a cosy underground room and had a glass of gin and tonic. We were there for about an hour in total. They have a little shop where you can buy small gift packs of three different types of gin, large bottles, candles and glasses with 10% off. We did this tour on a Friday and were told we could come back over the weekend and use the discount. Considering I don't like gin and went just for the interest of knowing how a distillery works it was very good. I actually enjoyed the gin and tonic given to us. :). The only reason I gave this 4 stars was because during the talk in the distillery I couldn't hear the guide very well as she was quite softly spoken.
  • My friend took me on the tasting tour for my birthday & what a great experience. Phillip was our guide & he made it not only interesting but I loved his quirky sense of humour, he really made the trip. I was also very surprised at how many tasters you got as well as a small bottle of your choice to take away. I loved it & would highly recommend...
  • This is a friendly, informative and value for money experience. Worth every penny. Great experience and great gin tasting afterwards. First class.
  • Fascinating to learn the social and historical facts about gin and gin making. Great tour and a great guide called Phillip. The Distillery is wonderful and at night it becomes a gin bar, very cosy and atmospheric. 10 out of 10.
