See and Do

Distilleries

Learn the art behind every sip of gin and vodka on a guided tour of our regions' distilleries. Meet the experts, take the tour and enjoy a tutored tasting as you discover the journey from grain to glass.

Forget London Dry Gin, our five regions are home to some of the most exciting distilleries in the country, serving up everything from gin and vodka, to whiskey. 

Any gin connoisseur will know that a great tasting gin is all about the botanicals, so take a peek behind the scenes (and into the stills) of some of these distilleries for a clue as to the local ingredients used, before taking a sip (with or without tonic) of some of their best tipples. Cheers! 

Puddingstone Distillery's Campfire Gin from Hertfordshire was voted World's Best Martini 2019.

The grain in Copper Rivet Distillery's spirits is grown just 20 miles away, in Kentish fields.

The Forest Distillery produces individual cask whiskys that are well worth a sample.
