Don't expect a tour of a large distillery. This is (currently) a small local producer of great tasting gins and vodka and the staff will happily explain what goes into the drinks and the process it takes to get to the final product. You can...More

Walked in, its a pub, quick look through the window at the distillery, looked at the price on the gin , nearly fainted and walked back out. Nip to Lidl and get a bottle of their Hortus - the bottle is the same.

Disappointing. In our mind we thought we could look around the distillery, but when we got here, all that was available was just by looking through one large glass window! The process to produce gin was informative, and we were able to sample and purchase...More
