Came here after dinner and asked for a digestive cocktail. The two lads behind the bar came up to two fabulous gin-based alternatives one with chartreuse and then a third sweeter one with apple juice and rosemary. All delicious and beautifully presented

Really recommend the the Gin tour and tasting. Excellent tour and well worth learning about the history of Gin and particularly Plymouth Gin and its association with the Royal navy.

The main difference is that you get to make your own gin on the £40 one. On the £7 one you just get a free G & T or a miniature to take home It’s a slightly longer tour but think the £7 one was very good.
