Hi Pengor, thank you for your lovely review, yes do knock if we're closed, if Ben isn't busy distilling or in a meeting then he will open up and let you in. Hope you enjoy the Campfire Gin.

A very informative talk by Ben on the birth of Puddingstone Distillery and how to distill great gin. Along with a generous amount of gin tasting this made for an excellent evening.

A fascinating evening hearing about this local distillery’s start up journey and understanding about how gin is made, it’s history and different botanical flavours. Thoroughly interesting, informative and entertaining. With an all important tasting session!

Great evening spent learning about gin and how it’s distilled locally here in Herts. Really passionate about their gins, this was a really enjoyable and educational visit with an opportunity to taste and buy award winning gins. A must visit if you like gin.
