Gin Distillery Tour


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 October 31st 2021.

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!
