A great place for drinks and gin particularly... Not being a gin drinker I did sample two very nice ones. A warm and relaxing atmosphere and the gin was great! Definately worth revisiting for sure.

Minus a point only because it was difficult to locate through not having any external signage. Understandable with a move planned very soon but in the meantime a temporary sandwich board would have helped. The service from the young woman was friendly and informed. I...More

Great service and delicious gin. Really informative and made us (and the kids) feel comfortable. Can’t wait to see what their setup is like when they move to a bigger spot and can start up their bar proper again. Thanks

Friendly staff with an amazing depth of knowledge about Gins. $10 for the tasting was well worth it considering it gets deducted from any further purchases. Definitely worth a stop if you’re near Davenport.

We called into the Gin Distillery. Costs ten dollars to taste but was well worth the money. Jade was a wealth of information and kept us interested with his knowledge. If you love gin it’s worth a trip.
