Chew Valley gin tasting

Gin's a pretty big deal nowadays. The craze for this juniper berry-based drink only seems to be growing. This is why you seriously need to get yourself over to Chew Valley Distillery - sharpish!

Tucked away in a small industrial unit in the village of Bitton , this distillery is offering a tasting of their award-winning gins, surrounded by the marvellous copper stills used to produce them.

But there's more to this tasting than that. Learn from the founder and distiller how this mighty spirit is made and how it soared to popularity today. All while sipping on a perfectly served Chew Valley G&T, as you're guided through the distillery's current range, which you'll taste as you go along.

Take a look at the fine botanicals we use and how they enhance the final product, as well as examining the distillery's process in detail. If you've ever had any burning questions about gin, now's your chance to get them answered!

These tastings are perfect for couples who want to try something a bit different for date night, families of gin enthusiasts, and larger groups getting together for the first time in a while (this distillery thinks the perfect number is a maximum of 12 guests per session).
