My wife and I stumbled on this by chance and had a fantastic couple of hours in the cocktail bar. Very decadent. Our only disappointment was that we were too late for the tour. Oh well, we will just have to come back to Plymouth to try it all out again.

Went into their restaurant upstairs and had a very pleasant surprise, food was excellent and the service fast and efficient. Based in the gin distillery house this modern restaurant provides the tourist with quality food and drink. Unfortunately i didnt take the tour of the distillery but there is a shop on the ground floor selling all forms of alcohol... More

40 minute tour explaining history of gin production in Plymouth and then they also show where and how it is made. Very interesting and you get a tasting, as well as a G&T in the bar at the end....!

Obviously it helps if you like gin but this tour has a variety of activities and information which should keep most adults interested for the duration of the tour. Admittedly you don't see much 'gin making' unless you book on the right day but the informative guide(s), I've been twice with different friends, tell you about the history of the... More

Very friendly staff who gave an interesting and informative tour. Was good value too considering you get a free drink/miniature of gin and a discount in the shop.

The tour shows you where the magic liquid is produced and the botanicals that are used to make it special. This is followed by some tastings. The ticket price includes a discount for the very nice gift shop and a lovely upstairs bar. Highly recommended.

A very, informative, interesting visit conducted by knowledgable, friendly guide who spoke clearly & loud enough to be heard by all; I think his name was Charlie...apologies if it wasn't! All the staff we met were lovely, the cost was good value, £7 including a G&T made with Fever Tree tonic...superb & tastings during the tour. Plymouth Gin is, "one... More

The tour is interesting and informative with a taste of gin and slow gin plus a gin and tonic in the bar at the end or you can... More
