I visited on my birthday as I am a gin and history fan, and this was somewhere recommended to me. We took my disabled son who found it completely wheelchair accessible. We had a very interesting talk and tour by a competent guide who pitched it just right. The tour included a tasting and we were given a money off... More

I cannot fault this place! The tour guide, Charlie, was great and very informative! It was nice to see the actual distillery up close and it's also great to see the distillery done in the old fashion style as well. We did the small 40 minute tour, which is £7 each, so great value, considering you get a small 20%... More

An excellent tour. Guide very knowledgeable and informative with right amount of humour to hold your attention. Followed by a great gin and tonic at the end of tour - what's not to like.

This was a work outing so no idea on the cost but definitely would not pay to go myself. Stood in a tiny room listening to some history before a taster then out through the 'gift shop'. You could collect your free gin miniature or drink at the bar. The bar was very nice. Shame you cant sit there for... More

Not being a gin drinker when a friend suggested we visit I was not that keen, but the very informative and interesting tour, helped by a very good guide, was a good way to spend nearly an hour. After hearing the history of Plymouth Gin, seeing where the 'magic' happens, being shown, and smelling, some of the ingredients that help... More

An excellent tour of a very old and unique business. Our tour guide was very informative and brought the last few hundred years of gin production to life, she made it an excellent experience that just came to life. Great to have an understanding of what goes into gin (only an idea, not the secret recipe!) and with the free... More
