We decided we'd pay a visit as we love the Lakes and we're interested in how they actually make the gin! We arrived just after 10am and booked the hour long tour. I'd suggest that you book online, we had to wait until the 12 o'clock tour. Each tour takes an hour and was lead by Esme, she certainly knows her stuff! Esme was clear, knowledgeable and answered questions without any fuss. As we had to wait we had a wander around the site and saw the alpacas who were quietly grazing in a field to the rear of the buildings. We had a coffee in the bistro, which was lovely. Staff were cheerful and helpful. Although we sort of thought that the tour would be about the gin, it wasn't, it was mainly about the whisky but still very interesting and informative. We sampled the blended whisky (the 'proper' stuff isn't available for another year) gin and vodka...all very nice! The shop sells a wide range of gins and vodkas along with other merchandise, some a little expensive but that didn't bother us. The buildings have been sensitively restored and are beautiful, worth a visit
