Not just for gin lovers! Plenty other other options if you're not typically a gin fan, but give it a go anyway, it's not like the stuff your Nana drinks. Probably the most homely and humble gin tasting experience in the country. We absolutely have...More

Drive past, turn around and stop. A fantastic experience, taste the different gins. This award winning distillery offers tasting of their various guns. The stand out was Old Toms. Cellar door sales of gin and other island produce Highly recommended

We stopped out of curiosity, and while I enjoyed a very informative (and tasty) tasting, my husband, daughter and our dog enjoyed the garden. The hardest thing was choosing which gin to buy - so I bought a gift-pack selection!

We stopped in here and enjoyed tasting the different gins. They were all amazing and the liqueurs were so good we bought a couple. Informative and passionate staff and a great little spot. Well worth a visit.

A delightfully knowledgeable girl introduced us to a variety of gins. We enjoyed our sampling.. A number of local herbs and plants are used, producing delicious flavours. Liminicello is also produced, amongst other things.

Informal and relaxed environment with a pleasant garden, where one can taste various gins and vodkas - most without cost (except small cost for premium offering). Staff were very friendly. Well worth a visit.
