For Your Money:
The Cotswolds Distillery is a pioneering force when it comes to Gin tourism. With daily tours you’ll be able to see the distillery in action, from gin to whisky production, and you’ll be taken to a tasting room to sample all of the goods.
The onsite shop is a beautiful little spot of merchandising genius, with all sorts of strange things to take away as well as some exclusive bottlings that are almost impossible to get hold of anywhere else.
A few thoughts from Gin Foundry:
Forget Blenheim Palace, this is the place to go in Oxfordshire if you are on the hunt for things to do. The consistent thing we always notice about their tour is just how much they invest in it. Not in anything lavish – but in the way that every person going through it clearly matters to them – they really try and convey what they do and answer what you want to know. The invest the time in telling their story and it’s a hard place to walk away from not feeling more than a little bit charmed by. As they are making whisky too, so the smells and what you learn about are as varied as the spirits they make. For a £10, it’s an absolute bargain.
In 2019, there will be a full blown visitor centre that will make the distillery even more beautiful, as well as stream line the tours, bringing with it different experiences to book into, so keep your eyes peeled.
Don’t forget though, if you are traveling as a family as a working distillery they are unable to accommodate any children under 8 years of age. Children aged 8-17 years of age must be accompanied by an adult at all times and will not be able to partake in the tasting session (due to licences).
