Absolutely amazing experience! Well thought out, brilliantly executed by Leanne, and a lot of fun. More homely and enjoyable than some of the big brands and incredible value for money - it felt like this was run by people who really just love gin! Plenty of testers and complimentary drinks, learned lots, but never felt burdened by information, an amazing bottle of gin by the end of it ... And all tucked away in a little wine shop. If you're in Torquay, don't miss out!

Would really recommend this gin experience to anyone looking for a fun and interesting activity. Paul was absolutely lovely and very helpful in making sure the gin my friend and I were making would taste good. Paul had a lot of knowledge about the history of gin which we both found very interesting. The room the gin tasting was in was very comfortable and aesthetically pleasing. The team also offer constant refreshments. The price is more than fair for the bottle you get and the experience. Couldn’t fault the experience!

Booked for my partner's birthday, we had an amazing experience. The staff delivering it was very knowledgeable and we learnt a lot about the gin making process. Everyone was very polite and welcoming even after my partner ordered his 7th included gin & tonic! The other group participating really made it a great experience as well.

We visited as a group of 5, Paul & Leanne really looked after us and taught us so much about making Gin. We all got to take home our very own bottle of gin, which thanks to the expert advice we received all tasted really great. Highly recommended!

The whole experience was great from the moment we entered the building. We had the early slot of 11am which meant we had the experience to ourselves!!! Great one to one teaching and the information provided was interesting and fun. Drinks were provided throughout which again was a nice touch. The shop was clean and well stocked with a great range of wines/spirits. The location isn’t in the best place (for passing trade) but they certainly deliver a great experience to entice people to return with new guests or even a second visit.

Went here with my wife and we couldn't have had a better time, the staff are really friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The drinks on offer are from a wide range of alcoholic and non alcoholic choices, you are guided through choosing the botanicals you want to use with plenty of choice. The adjoining shop has a decent selection of wines, spirits, beer and cider to buy. Very good cleanliness and COVID protection measures in place.

What a brilliant experience! It was such fun making our own gin. The experience was enhanced by the really friendly staff who were incredibly helpful. It was very interesting to hear about the history of gin and to be able to take our own bottle home. The shop itself was also a treasure trove of excellent wines and gin. We managed to have quite a shopping spree as well. I highly recommend both thr gin experience and the shop and will definitely be visiting again.
