Not much to see as far as a tour is concerned. But the guides are very informative about the history of the company and the process. Great bar upstairs with many cocktails to try and a shop downstairs to buy your Navy strength Gin

The main difference is that you get to make your own gin on the £40 one. On the £7 one you just get a free G & T or a miniature to take home It’s a slightly longer tour but think the £7 one was very good.

They start at 10.30 and are half past every hour. I would advise booking as we are extremely busy.
