    Small batch gin at it's best!
    Joanne_C, Jun 2023
    Booked this tour as a last minute addition to our itinerary whilst stopping in Stratford, and I am very glad that we did! If gin is your thing, then do not miss this opportunity to receive an education as to the history of this beverage and the making of it. The young people at Shakespeare Distillery are incredibly enthusiastic about what they do and this really comes over during the tour. The tour starts with a history of gin through the ages where we find out where such sayings as 'blind drunk' and 'mother's ruin' come from. Then on we go to the distillery where we are talked through the manufacture process of their small batch product. And finally, the best bit - the tasting! We were given 3 different types of gin and also a rum to sample with suggestions on how they should be served. They were all produced by the distillery and all were delightful and incredibly smooth. We highly recommend this tour to anyone who is curious to find out the difference between independent, small batch produced spirt and over produced, commercial grade spirit. clue: they don't compare!
