Wee day out

Bought a tour of the distillery for my wife as a Christmas present. On arrival we were met by Fiona who was very welcoming and explained to my wife and her friend what to expect from the tour.

The tour start with a little history of the lovely estate and the talking about the various different herbs and spices that grow in the grounds and go into the gin.

The on site shop is very well laid out and surprisingly included more than just gin.

I’d thoroughly recommend the tour to anyone interested in the gin making process, it is obvious that both Fiona and David have a passion for their product.

Great afternoon out!

Fantastic visit for my husband’s birthday Neil and David both very knowledgeable – great tour of the distillery and some insight into the production of Shortcross with David and then how to make the perfect G&T with Neil. Apparently I make the better G&T so my job from now on! The weather prevented a walk around the grounds – an excuse to visit again!

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.
