We had a fantastic afternoon with Philip. He was very engaging, informative & thoughtful. He made our experience memorable. We highly recommend the gin making experience, especially if you are lucky enough to have Philip as your host.

We were given vouchers for the Connoisseur visit, which was excellent. Good talk for 45 mins, then visit to small distillery, followed by tasting of four samples and then two liqueur samples. Great value !
