Our distillery is due to open early January and your booking can be made as soon as we are open.
Arriving at our distillery, you and your fellow gin enthusiasts will be greeted with a gin and tonic to get you straight into the spirit of things.
You will then be met by one of our knowledgeable gin distillery tour guides who will start with an insight into the history of Hensol Castle and its inhabitants’ interesting links to gin. As gin lovers ourselves, we will pass on our knowledge of the history of gin and why it’s fast becoming the nation’s favourite tipple.
The botanicals room is where you can touch, smell and understand where gin botanicals come from and how they enhance this wonderful spirit.
You’ll then move onto your classroom, where you will find out what gin is made from, and can take charge of your very own individual miniature copper pot still. Our master distiller knows everything there is to know about how to make gin, this sweet nectar and, under his expert tuition, he will guide you every step of the way ensuring you make a gin you’ll be proud to call your own and show off to your friends….but maybe not share with them!
Next, the bit you’ve all been waiting for, tasters of the gins themselves culminating with a perfect serve of Hensol Castle Distillery gin and tonic. For the designated drivers, there will be a take away option for you to enjoy in the comfort of your own home.
