  • Jan 18 Fascinating tour of an equally fascinating , if short, history of this gin distillery that's really a whisky distillery! Very friendly & well informed staff who are very keen to ensure everyone has a great time. Cosy free sampling session at the end of the tour, that allows drivers, & cheeky girls with a pretty smile, to take their share home! There is of course an on site shop where you can buy to your hearts content . . .
  • Visited last week for the tour as live locally. Our guide was very knowledgeable & had a natural approach to all the visitors. Thoroughly enjoyed the experience & had a few samples,a couple of which I took home as driving, which is a great thing to do. Having done Whisky tours in Scotland, this was a highly personable one & recommended.
  • Went here for a tour of the facility as a Christmas present and absolutely loved it. The young man who took us around, Connor was one of the most friendly knowledgable guides we have ever had on a tour anywhere else. Plenty to taste with such a wide range of flavours. Going home with a bag full of gins. Thoroughly recommend this to any gin buffs well worth a visit.
  • Great tour both entertaining and informative by Hattie. Would recommend to others. Great products, the tasting was relaxed and the take-away option is great for drivers. Fantastic visit.
  • Best craft producer in the world, and best whiskey in England. A must stop when visiting the Cotswold if you're looking for a tipple, or for gifts to share with others.
