Book early if you’re interested in a tour of the distillery. Lots of flavoured gins to taste. Check out the cheeses “dirty vicar”.

Our excellent guide, Lydia, led us on an educational and amusing journey through the gin distilling process. We were gripped by the different ways of processing the 24 botanicals to the mechanics of using the still. Highly recommended

Very informative talk on the story of how the distillery came to be, how the various gins are created and a wide variety of tastings, great fun!

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.
