The tasting room was hosted by a very helpful and well informed young French lady who arrived on a bicycle from the distillery. Tastings were free unless trying the whisky. Their gin varieties are very good. Vive la France.

Called in here on the off chance they might be open, what a surprise, a lovely tour of the distillery at a moments notice. William McHenry was very accomodating and informative about the distilling process. Will definitely call back to get more Gin!
