Spent a lovely time here finding all about the Gin making.really worth visiting. I was amazed how long the gin distillery has been in being, and the history about it. It was really interesting, the young tour guide was very knowledgable,and answered any questions fully. It was nice that we were given a miniature of Plymouth Gin to take away.

Basic tour was very informative and our guide was happy to answer any queries we had, also happened to meet one of the distillers who also gave us a chat about his job and the difficulties in the gin industry. Was given the present of the Master Distiller's tour which allows you to have a blind taste test of 5... More

Really enjoyed the basic tour. Very knowledgeable guide who gives lots of background to the history of the place as well as info on the actual gin. Very interesting learning about the master distillers job, the association with the navy and the content of Plymouth Gin. Great little tasting and smelling and came away with some Navy strength gin!

lovely looking cocktail bar, however cocktails are just average. but be warned a rather rude girl will TELL you to move to another sofa and join other couples if you are not using all the seats around your table. we we're joined by two couples in 30 mins, we all seemed a bit miffed why , especially as the sofas...

I came upon this place by chance. I like gin so I went in. £7.00 for the tour with guide plus tastings was good value. Interesting about the gin and the old building - once a monastery.

Very interesting tour and great staff make this a must if you visit Plymouth. Learn about the process and history of this famous Gin and then sample a glass in the lovely bar upstairs. My partner doesn't even like Gin but found the tour very interesting and I was lucky enough to have her complimentary gin too......

My wife and I had booked a connoisseur visit for us, mum,dad,sister and brother. This was booked for 11am but due to traffic issues they didn't arrive until 11:30 am. The staff couldn't have been more pleasant or accommodating in rearranging our tour. Many thanks especially to Harriet for everything and a fantastic tour. See you all for the next... More

It only takes 45 minutes but the time is well spent in an historical building on Plymouth's Barbican. Plymouth Gin Distillery welcomes visitors and by the time you have had a taster which is a large G&T you leave a great deal wiser on how gin is made and somehow also manage to absorb the feeling of the past in...

A bit of history and explanation of the distillery and storage. The G&T at the end was excellent. Worth a visit.
