From the moment we walked in until the complimentary gin and tonic at the end, we felt welcomed and well informed about the history of Plymouth Gin. The guide, Annie, was eloquent and engaging. The Refectory bar upstairs is beautiful, relaxing and the staff again were well informed. Highly recommended.

My partner booked me and herself in for a connoisseurs visit around this attraction. The guide who took us around was very knowledgeable and interesting. The Gin tasting at the end was eye opening. She explained how it was that every gin was slightly different and took us through all the different spices and herbs that could be used in... More

Having been born and raised in Devon I am slightly embarrassed to say, although I have heard and familiar with the distillery, I have only recently visited. And my! What a delightful trip! The tour was very informative, and highly educational. Although, the highlight typically was the free g&t in the impressive bar upstairs. Will be back sooner rather than... More

Me and my partner are members here and it is always first on our list of places to go on an evening - the bar is beautiful and has a lovely atmosphere, the staff are always friendly and if sat at the bar they chat to you and get to know you. Some people may feel that having to be... More

We visited the distillery two days before Christmas. Shown round by a very pleasant and knowledgable young lady with all the facts at her fingertips. We opted for the £20 tour and the tasting, in a room lined with a vast number of bottles of gin from all over the world, was first class. Enjoyed a G & T and... More

Definitely worth a visit if you're in the area and the tour is a must. The distillery is located in a lovely old building with a beautiful bar upstairs. Very informative and a good way to spend some time in Plymouth.

Can't comment on the tour - never got chance to see it!! Travelled down on business from Blackpool early December, and planned a day out in Plymouth. The place was quiet, out of season... One person - me on my own. Turned up impromptu at around 9.45am-ish. Told by the lady on the desk 'no tour place available until 4pm... More

Hmm, nearly a 1 star, almost resurrected to 4, then fell at the last hurdle! Let's start at the beginning shall we - I've visited loads of distilleries so I know the format, but I fancied this little tour mainly because of the distillery's history, synonymous with our Naval Tradition - of which I'm proud! We called in to enquire... More

We booked a cocktail masterclass as a group if girl friends to celebrate one of our 30th birthdays, we didn't know what to expect but we were really impressed. It was excellent value for money. We got to watch five classic cocktails being made and were taught all the techniques sampling all the way!! We then each had a time... More
