This is a brand new distillery and gin tasting facility from the makers of NB gin. Minutes from tantallon castle and just on the outskirts of North Berwick. The interior is stylish and you are offered slippers on arrival before touring the small but gleaming distillery. I missed the tour itself and turned up for the tasting only but the others said that it was all very interesting and informative. We tasted two gins of differing strengths and a vodka that was quite unique with a strong citrus kick. We were then offered a cocktail made from our chosen spirit. This was all accompanied by delicious canapés made by a local company.
It is a really good way to spend a couple of hours and there are discounts on the spirits if you fancy taking some home. Staff were really friendly and made the whole experience a lot of fun.
Highly recommended

We had a private dining experience to die for. Viv and Steve have curated the most fabulous London Dry Gin (I didn’t know I cared which gin I had until I tried theirs). It’s been voted the best in the world, and it’s no wonder.

The team at NB are hospitable and fun. They love what they do and are so proud of it it’s infectious. Plus they serve up fabulous food in a wonderfully homely (yet 5* hotel feel) environment.

Finally, even if you don’t usually like it, try their Vodka. WOW. It’s distilled with citrus notes and is to die for. I now have a bottle of each (including the Navy strength which I keep for those guests who never leave as its amazingly drinkable but SUPER strong) at home and I love them all.
