Stumbled upon the gin distillery by accident. £7 each for a very informative guided tour (Thanks Becci!) Including a gin and a sloe gin sample. Entry also gives you a free g&t or sloe gin shot in the cocktail bar.

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.
