    Absolutely loved our afternoon at the distillery. We had booked the Self-Discovery package and really enjoyed the freedom of being able to move at our own pace through the site. On arrival we were giv...  more »

    Not me for one. The Cocktail Master Class is great fun and is a good appetizer for the tour that followed which explained how vapor infusion is used to achieve the refined Bombay Sapphire taste. A sma...  more »

  • I was lucky enough to be taken here as a nice treat! The whole place is immaculately presented, retaining its historical past with ease. I was very impressed with the quality of all interior and exterior spaces. Onto the reason we visited, gin. We partook in the Gin Masterclass session which is one hour long. During it, you make two cocktails using pre defined ingredients and equipment all supplied by the distillery. Accompanying this was a great presentation by one of the expert cocktail makers who had great knowledge and humour. After this, we wobbled our way around the self guided tour of the distillery, botanical area and gardens. Very impressive and well thought out. Once you are done, you have the opportunity to visit the Mill Bar for further drinks should you wish. There is an outdoor seating area beside the river which would be excellent in the summer months. I would have to say, a visit would be most productive and enjoyable if you include the Gin Masterclass as this made the whole experience much better for me. It provides some great tips and information about gin, cocktail making and flavouring in general.
  • A good, different experience. Sympathetically adapted buildings from the days of bank note making in Hampshire, now converted to the distillery. Listening posts explain the processes. Sniff all the aromas used in the gin making then have your favourites turned into a cocktail.
  • Very well organised tour by knowledgeable and friendly staff. My husband uses a mobility scooter and was able to access all areas except for the top floor which was too hot to visit yesterday anyway. Overall an enjoyable experience especially the tailor made cocktails at the end. Even the designated driver gets a goody bag to take away.
  • We visited to celebrate my sister in laws birthday. We went for the master class. Great value for money. Brilliant atmosphere. Staff really fun, friendly and informative!
  • This heritage site is the place where all the Bombay Sapphire Gin products are created for the entire world's supply. It is quite the drive to the site as it is far off the main roads. Take courage and let your GPS do its job as the place is educational, interesting, and fun. Plan to spend at least an hour here and especially take time out to visit the still rooms themselves. - the guides (and especially Louise) are lots of fun and full of great information. If you're hoping to do a "master class" then you'll need to book that well in advance as the class sizes are limited to just a small amount each day. You don't "need" to do the master class - it's all really interesting in any event. There is a nicely supplied gift shop at the end of the tour (after your free cocktail) which has lots of Bombay Sapphire branded bar utensils and accessories. For the driver in the group - there is a little take-away kit comprised of a single serving of gin & tonic in a brown paper bag, as well as a free non-alcoholic drink while the rest of your group oohs and aahs over their specially created coctails.
