We visited Plymouth Gin tour to celebrate a birthday. We had the tasting tour. Going with friends who'd been there before they had the brilliant idea of starting with a cocktail. What ever you do if you have the chance to go have a cocktail, the lounge is amazing along with the menu it took ages to decide - can... More

A very informative and interesting experience with the added attraction of tasting a number of different Gins. If you go make sure you are not driving as after the tasting you are invited to have a gin and tonic to finish the tour.

We had a fascinating and interesting tour of the distillery including much of the history of gin making. The food in the restaurant is delicious and varied. Unmissable.

Did the master distiller tour. Tour of the distillery, tutored tasting of 5 classic gins to highlight the different botanicals, then a chance to distil our own blend. Guided choices for the botanicals to ensure balanced end product, then put into the flask, wait about 20 min , then hey presto, clear distillate from the murky brew. Like alchemy. Fantastic... More

Having just started drinking gin (I know...how much time did I waste) my mum treated myself and two of my sisters to a visit to the Plymouth Gin Factory. What a great couple of hours we had, the tour itself about 40 mins long, which is very interesting and to the point! You get to sample the gin too! 😜!... More

We visited on Tuesday 7 February and were thoroughly entertained. Becky showed us round the building that had so much history. Luckily for us the distillery was producing a batch of gin when we visited, the smells were brilliant. My wife is not a gin drinker but with Beckys guidance she appreciated the different qualities present in the gin, particularly... More

A very informative tour of the establishment by a brilliant guide. This ended in tasting 5 different gins which we had to try and identify. We failed miserably but it was all good fun. You end up back in the shop to make any purchases you wish followed by a G and T in the bar. If you have any... More
