Had a fantastic tour that ended up as just us. Naomi was great and very informative. We did the connoisseur tour and it’s amazing how various dry gins differ in flavour.

The main difference is that you get to make your own gin on the £40 one. On the £7 one you just get a free G & T or a miniature to take home It’s a slightly longer tour but think the £7 one was very good.
