Friendly welcome, interesting tour and informative Gin School Session. Good fun to be had making your own ‘personal’ bottle of gin under the guidance of the very knowledgeable staff.

Fantastic experience, highly recommended.
Oct 2021 • Couples
Really fantastic afternoon, enjoyed every second.
This was a much rearranged 2019 Christmas present and was definitely worth the wait.
We felt comfortable asking lots of questions to our 2 very enthusiastic and knowledgeable gin distillers . Everything was set out well and we were given ample opportunity to taste and savour lots of botanicals before being helped to select our favourites and produce our very own gin. Every stage was well ordered and explained .

Gin school experience
Oct 2021 • Solo
Such a entertaining thing to do. Informative, but mainly hands on fun. And you come away with your very own gin at the end of it. The experience and presentation of the finished product were first class.

Overall a well organised and presented experience. This was a present for us and, despite Covid delays, was thoroughly enjoyed. Every aspect was really good and our finished product looked and tasted very good.

Blend and have fun
Sep 2021
We went for the gin making experience. Originally signed up for making one bottle between the two of us but upgraded to making a bottle each. Good decision as although we both like the same gins our blends were totally different A really Great afternoon both tasting and making our own gin. The chaps presenting the tour, background on how gin is produced and guiding us through the making of our blends were knowledgeable, enthusiastic and fun. Well done to all and highly recommended

A Gintastic time
Sep 2021
A fully immersive experience into the whole distillation process whilst guided by a very helpful team, including opportunities to taste their own gins during the afternoon. Great fun designing your own gin and producing it yourselves under expert tuition and then at the end of the day after producing your bespoke bottle you can taste your own gin in the bar if still capable in the company of others on the experience. Looking forward to our friends comments when we share at home !

Excellent gin tasting tour
Sep 2021
My friend and I did the gin tasting tour. Our guide - Chris, was very knowledgeable and first talked us through the gin distilling process before we had our taster session. This was a great experience and excellent value for money. Thoroughly enjoyed the tour and would recommend it to anyone who likes gin!

Best “Welcome to Salcombe” Experience
Sep 2021 • Couples
I moved to Salcombe with my husband this year and we knew we had to attend Gin school. The experience was absolutely amazing and the staff was both friendly and helpful. It was very special creating our own Gin and sharing the experience with fellow Gin lovers. Whether you are with a partner, friends or even by yourself, I recommend this experience to everyone!
