We found the Distillery by coincidence. The lonely Planet recommends it as well so we gave it a try. The story behind the founder and the founding with the idea of “owning a part of it” is great idea. The tour was closed at that...More

Had a lovely day. It takes about 2 hours including the tasting of the products afterwards. There is certainly no hard pressure to buy and very thoughtfully they provide mini sample pots for the driver so you can take them home and not miss out....More
