  • This was a pre booked tour visit to the distillery. Wonderful experience. The history of the mill site, the guided tour, plenty of information spots, biodiversity, giant plant biomes standing in the r...  read more »
  • We booked the tour of the distillery for a Saturday at 11:45. The tour was well worth the £15/person and the cocktails were excellent, it was just a shame we had to leave so early as we had lunch rese...  read more »

  • The tour is a very interesting way to spend a few hours. It seems that you can also just drop in there and visit the bar or shop to guy a few gin related cocktails or have a cup of coffee sat by the river. We pre-booked a cocktail master class followed by a tour. We got to make two cocktails ourselves (and of course enjoy our good work) and the demonstrator showed us a couple of others ones too. He went over some of the botanicals that were in the Bombay Sapphire gin and explained some of the theory behind why some cocktails are made the way they are. This took about 1 hour. After this we went on the self guided tour. It is only a small site but you could spend quite a while in the two green houses if you are interested in the plants. There is then a room with various botanicals that you smell and mark the little map they give you to note what you like. This then suggests which complementary cocktail you should try in the bar at the end. From the scent room you can take a guided tour through the distillery to see to two stills and hear about the gin making process. The guided part of the tour takes another 45 minutes or more. There is a dial on the wall which indicates how frequently the tours run (ever 20 minutes to once an hour depending on how busy it is). If you are driving they offer a non-alcoholic mocktail at the end of the tour and will give you a gin & tonic take away bag to enjoy at home instead. You can purchase more cocktails in the bar. There was a small range of cocktail related items and books in the shop. This was a very interesting afternoon out. In the end we spent about 4 hours there once we had had drunk cocktails at the end of the tour and visited the shop. The stream and heritage buildings make for a pleasant site.
  • There's a lot more to gin than I ever thought and a visit here proves it. Surprising, great fun and it might just change the way you feel about gin. Lovely cocktail to end the visit. There are some very fine walks to be had in the area too.
  • Fun place to visit for a day out. Informative tour with a cocktail at the end. The whole place is elegant and tastefully done. Countryside location makes for a nice drive.
  • Stunning architecture, and an informative, enthusiastic tour. Loved the mini botanical gardens, and the cocktail-choosing experience was a novel touch. Really appreciated that drivers weren't left out, with virgin cocktails and take-home gift packs.
  • A great tour of the distillery with amazing greenhouses, and a nice drink in the really impressive bar at the end.
