Staff were friendly and knowledgeable, tour lasted just the right amount of time at 40 minutes. 2 tasters, a free gin and tonic, and a voucher for the shop, well worth £7! Bar upstairs is also worth a visit. Great for visitors and locals.

A cold, rainy August day took us to Plymouth Gin Distillery for their tour. We ate afterwards at the Barbican restaurant on the same premises, and I've reviewed this elsewhere. The tour was run with confidence and humour by knowleadgeable young woman, and our attention was held throughout. It's a small but fascinating place. The tour included a G&T in... More

Had a wonderful Singapore Sling here, that was actually better than the one I had in the Long Bar at Raffles where I believe the drink originated. The bar has a nice atmosphere and we really enjoyed an hour or two there. They used to give a small plate of nuts with your order, but this appears to have been... More

Rather brief but very factual. The intro was instructive if a little lacking in interactivity!!! The distilling section was equally informative but lacked real dynamic impression. The tasting also served as a lesson in listening with too little time spent on discovering the impact of the botanicals. Then to not have the chance to experience the 'bar' due to electrical...

Booked the £20 distillery tour... Interesting and engaging tour and amazing customer service from start to finish! Really enjoyed it, learnt lots... Would recommend it to anyone with any kind of interest in Gin (or drinking it)! Our Guide Harriet covered 600 years of history in 10 minutes, followed by expert knowledge and engaging manner culminating in an amazing gin... More

We visited the distillery purely by chance as we wandered past, and were intrigued by the tour. At only £7 each, it was a no brainer. I am not even a fan of gin, but the tour was fantastic. I enjoyed learning the history of the brand, finding out how it is made and tasting some of the types of... More

Missed the distillery tour, but looked through the centre and the enthusiastic and helpful staff answered all our questions. If you can take the tour I would recommend you take it, because I think it would be fantastic. We then visited the absolutely beautiful upstairs bar and my husband tried several of the many boutique gins available. The bar seating... More

We visited Plymouth distillery early July -15 and got a superb briefing on the company's history and present from a lively guide. We had chosen the tour with gin tasting and distillation of our own gin's. My highest recommendations, you will not be disappointed. Plymouth Gin isn't a very big place, but their way of doing things is charming. The... More
