The Festive Blues Afternoon – Saturday 7th December
Great Treat For Gin Drinking Americans

I booked this tour for my wife & I and our two American visitors who are also gin drinkers. The initial part of the tour was explaining the history of the company and the process of distilling the gin. This was followed by a Master Class in how to make the perfect gin & tonic. Needless to say, all of the visitors in the room were focused on how this could be achieved. Everyone was involved and had the opportunity to copy the process. We had a wonderful time and were glad to have included this for our visitors. Based on what we had learned, we were able to demonstrate to our friends and visitors at a gathering the following evening. Our visitors were also able to take this back to the States. Thank you all at Rademon for your professional approach and I wish you success with the soon to be released ShortCross Whiskey.

A fabulous day out

The experience began the minute you entered the gates, the grounds were beautiful, both Fiona and David were so welcoming, the set-up is so professional, the staff are so friendly and knowledgeable about the product and the hand crafted copper stills are beautifully crafted set within such a clean environment. The information given by David was really down to earth and really interesting. Their Mixologist and bar staff were also really interesting and entertaining. I would highly recommend this as a day out as this was a Fun day that we will remember.

Get together

Fantastic way to spend an afternoon relaxing and catching up with friends in a beautiful setting. Lovely shop and the gin and tonic master class was great fun.
