The owner John was very informative about the production of each of his fruit liqueurs. And each one was very different & very nice in its own flavour. Very well worth finding the Distillery. Bought my favourite Daybreak.

The owner shares very nice and interesting stories and knowledge. He's very friendly to talk to. We bought the strawberry splash and cinnamon blood orange ones. They are very tasty! And strong for me!

Really interesting to learn how the fruit is turned into a liqueur and the process involved. Obviously the tasting is the best bit and definitely worth buying a bottle (or two!) to take away.
