What a fffffffantastic afternoon! Lydia, our tour guide was knowledgeable, entertaining and fun! We had so so so many scrummy samples! Lots of anecdotes and stories of past tours! Off home to enjoy our Albury Gin!

Really enjoyed the Tour. Paul was very knowledgeable and interesting. There was lots of samples too! Tonic mixers were available too. Special mention to Alex and V from the shop! You get a £5.00 voucher each to spend in the shop.

Fascinating Tour of the distillery and more than enough tasting. Tour Guide Tory from California especially good and knowledgeable. Highly recommended. Combine it with a walk in the beautiful Surrey Hills by Newlands Corner and a meal in Shere

I was disappointed not to have more to drink - the samples were quite small, and there was no tonic mixer. However, it was interesting to learn about the gin-making process and the guide was most professional. He seemed a particular hit with the ladies.

Excellent tour from Lydia. Tour takes 1.5 hours but was interesting, funny and very worthwhile. Gins are fantastic, as expected, and their new Vodka is just as good. Would recommend to anyone.

This is an excellent insight into the making of Silent Pool gin, from how the brand came to life, how the flavours are created to how the gin is made. It concludes with gin tasting - great fun! Hamish, our distiller, was very knowledgeable and...More

I’m not a gin drinker but I have to say I left the distillery a lot wiser to both the manufacture and history of this remarkable drink which went out of fashion as “mothers ruin” and is currently undergoing a massive revival. You tend to...More

At the Distillery itself, a bottle costs £37 but if you're there on one of their tours they give you a £5 discount voucher. Suspect it's probably cheaper to buy at Waitrose, who stock it.

You get to try quite a number of gins, but in small doses and I got to the point when I didn’t drink the whole taster. All of the group that we were with drove home.
