  • Myself and my other half (as lovers of gin and whisky respectively!) decided to visit for a tour and tasting on our way back home from a trip away. We're both already fans of the produce but wanted a chance to try some different ones and learn a bit more about how it's made. Hattie was a fabulous guide, very knowledgeable and kept everyone laughing too! Lovely afternoon with a bonus of some really nice food from the cafe. Would definitely recommend a visit and we look forward to returning after the upcoming expansion!
  • Brilliant visit, great tour, Nicola was friendly, knowledgeable and funny, she made the whole visit amazing. We can not speak highly of her, from start to finish, whilst sampling she made the whole group feel included, those who were and were not drinking. Nicola is a massive personality within your team. Thank you Nicola for making our visit the best gin tour we have been on and we have been on several 😀 The only down side was we bought a pen and realised when we got home it was not put in the bigger bag from bottle bag, should of contact them but life took over. Still an amazing time 😊 One last thing, visit the cafe, food is lovely 😍
  • The Cotswold Distillery is a fantastic place for Whisky and Gin drinkers alike. I would highly recommend the distillery tour. It's an interesting tour to go on but you get to taste all the Whisky and Gin they supply so if you've not tried one before, here's your chance. Suzy, our tour guide was friendly, funny, and informative. All the staff are friendly. They offer a selection of nice food for snacks and lunch, including stone baked pizza and some excellent cakes
  • I've been to a few distilleries and tours. By far, this was the best experience. Allison was very pleasant and knowledgeable throughout the tour and also in running the tasting afterwards. The overall story, and the ambiance of the Cotswolds Distillery is very inviting and engaging. This is also one of the few tours that lets you try the new make whiskey, which I would like to say is some of the most drinkable new make I have ever had. Higher proof whiskeys, so the nose tends to not be as complex, but the flavor is supreme. Coming to the Gins, these are also a beautifully balanced taste and the unfiltered cloudiness and the flavours that come through from that, are better than any gin I have had to date. Highly recommend giving this place a visit.
  • Great little distillery in the middle of nowhere. Don’t be worried if your sat nav takes you down some very narrow single track roads, you will get there eventually. Book your tour well in advance as they were fully booked when we turned up on the off chance but they still made us very welcome and we had a short video presentation and then sampled the various whisky’s and gins available before deciding which to take home. Add to that a great little tea or coffee shop, very clean toilets and the best (and biggest) carrot cake we’ve in a long time what more could you want. Highly recommended
