Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Really enjoyed our time with Emma, Colin and Simon (king of spreadsheets!).

The gin was lovely and being able to customise and distil your own then bottle it was really fun.

Would recommend this for anyone who has a taste for gin.

The venue at 55 Whitefriargate is also really superb.

Thanks for a Saturday afternoon to remember.

The whole experience was brilliant from the outset! The staff were incredibly knowledgeable and made us feel very relaxed and at ease straight away. I was impressed with how interactive the afternoon was and I would consider it to be great value for money. I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone, gin drinker or not!

Great afternoon. Simon and Emma are extremely knowledgeable and share their enthusiasm for quality spirits in this friendly and relaxed afternoon experience. Thoroughly enjoyed the cocktail-making lessons, learning about (and sampling!) different types of rum and the distilling process and the chance to create and bring home our own unique recipe spiced rum. Highly recommend this well-presented, fun activity for any rum lovers, with the chance to purchase the Hotham's brand spirits at discount prices.
