Not much to see as far as a tour is concerned. But the guides are very informative about the history of the company and the process. Great bar upstairs with many cocktails to try and a shop downstairs to buy your Navy strength Gin

After doing the 40 minute tour we had to come back and do this tour which includes distilling you own small bottle of gin. Fabulous afternoon with very knowledgeable guide.

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.
