Here at Hensol Castle Distillery, the health and safety of our customers is of upmost importance. In response to the advice given by the government regarding Covid-19, we have taken the decision to postpone all of our Gin Tours and Gin Making Experiences for the foreseeable future and hope to open in Spring 2021. All gift vouchers purchased will be honoured until March 31st 2022.

Gin Experiences

Just outside Cardiff in the heart of the beautiful Vale of Glamorgan countryside you’ll find our gin distillery brewing nicely in the cellar of 17th century Hensol Castle. The combination of Hensol Castle which is steeped in history together with the modern vibes and fun nature of gin creates a truly distinctive experience.  So no matter how far you’ve travelled you’re sure to have a great time.

Still at Hensol Castle Distillery


In a nutshell our tour lasts about an hour and a half and you’ll be treated to a story-filled guided journey of the distillery learning all about the history of Hensol Castle, the origins of gin, the wonders of botanicals and our distilling process, but always making sure there’s still plenty of time left for the all important gin tasting!

Mini Gin Stills


For those of you who like your gin just so, this is for you!  You can distil, bottle and label your own gin exactly the way you like it.  You will spend 2 ½ hours combining a little history of gin with making your own 70cl bottle to your specific recipe.  So whether you come on your own or with friends you can be assured to be with others who love their gin too.
