4 Gin loving friends went for a tasting and we were not disappointed!! The gins are delicious and while the bottles may sound pricey I think they are well priced for the quality delivered. Just don’t ruin it by adding tonic.....drink it neat!!!

What an amazing experience. The chance to learn about gin and mix our own recipe was excellent. Pauline our sommelier and guide other than having the most perfect accent was knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. This activity is highly recommended.
