Our guide Sarah was excellent. Very knowledgeable and made it a fun experience. A welcome drink followed by a generous taste of the products made. Interesting to talk to one of the artisans working there too and watch the process in action.

Cool thing for people who are interested in the entire process of making a given alcohol. In my case, Gin. Some interesting information about which I did not know. Great time and tasting. I recommend 🙂👏

Highly informative and well presented. This package is half a tasting event and half a tour of the distillery. (So, come by public transport! No driving!) The tasting was accompanied by a very knowledgeable and entertaining background talk and a sniffing of botanicals. Fantastic! The drinks we sampled are excellent. Vodka, gin, rye etc. The tour itself is not very long as it is a small place! But it was great to the see this equipment in use. The noise in the distillery room was a bit loud. But there was time for Q&A afterwards. There is, of course, a shop! Easy to get to by bus.
