Very enjoyable way to spend an afternoon. Our tour guide was funny and knew lots of history of the distillery and the gin manufacturing process. Definitely worth a visit and don't forget your free drink in the bar upstairs!!

The main difference is that you get to make your own gin on the £40 one. On the £7 one you just get a free G & T or a miniature to take home It’s a slightly longer tour but think the £7 one was very good.

They start at 10.30 and are half past every hour. I would advise booking as we are extremely busy.
