We like gin so went it to see what the fuss was about. Bought a bottle "Wild Gin" (expensive) and liked it so much we went and got a second bottle "O'Gin" to take home. The place where the outlet is looks pretty alternate.

The choices maybe small but the quality is world class. You have the opportunity to talk to the distillers and be educated about the process and local florals they use. Tasting is free except for the “Old Tom” which is $5.00. Well worth the experience....More

A range of gins to try but potentially not to everyone’s taste. Simple little cafe with a nice garden and moderately friendly staff.

Glad we went back to do a tasting - check opening times in winter. Beautiful boutique gins - the Mulberry a real surprise. Areas inside and outside (with brasseries) for tasting. Knowledgeable, friendly staff.

16 of us descended upon them and they handled it well. We tried most of them and bought quite a few of the locally distilled spirits. We also tried their coffee & ice cream with alcohol & without. Enjoyed by all.
