My friend and I did the £7 tour of the distillery which included a tour and talk for around 40 minutes, plus some gin tastings with the added option of a G&T after the tour (or a miniature to take away). We found it really interesting and informal, the guide was knowledgeable and answered everyone's questions. After the tour we... More

Enjoyed a visit to gin distillery, found it very interesting with friendly & knowledgeable staff. Learnt all about the history & making of Plymouth gin as well as ingredients used and taster. Free G&T in bar after or miniature to take home. Good shop to make purchases too. All round worth the money.

When you visit Plymouth the first thing that comes to mind is the Plymouth gin so why not find some time to take the tour ? Anne our tour guide with her tremendous knowledge made the tour enjoyable and informations about gins in general. Worth the money for the wonderful experience you get!

Such a lovely thing to do whilst in Plymouth! We did the tour of the distillery & it was very informative without been boring or too much. Then we spent time upstairs in The Refectory Bar, the waitresses were lovely and helpful! Really attentive when needed and had opinions and suggestions on what cocktails to try. Defiantly worth a visit!!

The building is fascinating and a great place to meet up with friends. A wide range of gin based cocktails and bar snacks, comfortable sofas and lively atmosphere. I love the unusual shaped vessels the cocktails arrived in.

I decided to take my daughter for a trip here as the reviews were so good, and I was up at the university visiting her for the day. We went here at 1.15pm and sadly they don't do a 1.30 tour so we would have to wait untill 2.30pm. As we didn't want to wait around for that long we... More

We are unable to accommodate a tour at 1.30pm as we have a Master Tour going on a that time. We are looking into changing the time slots next year which will make this available. Sorry you were disappointed. More
