13th April 2021
It is with great delight that we will reopen our open air bar this Friday, 16th April 2021. For more information and our opening hours, please click here.
From Friday 21st May (subject to any further government guidance) we will be reopening our tours. We are very confident we have all the necessary measures in place and what we all love about our Distillery will continue – friendly, knowledgeable staff, a fun, relaxed atmosphere and, of course, great tasting spirits. Tours can be booked here.
Throughout lockdown we have prioritised the safety of our team above all else by following the latest UK government advice and best practices. Now, finally (we’re sure we’re not the only ones looking forward to a visit to a bar!), we are reopening and taking every measure to keep you, and us, safe.
We take cleanliness at the distillery very seriously and can assure you that:
Your favourite spirits can be ordered online and delivered to your doorstep for free across the UK mainland. At the moment delivery times are slightly extended and your purchase should arrive within three to four working days.
If you live locally you may find that we deliver your order personally within two working days.
Orders purchased on our website will be left on your doorstep, adhering strictly to social distancing guidelines. We ask you to stay at least 2 metres away from our delivery driver.
Subject to government guidance, we will be running our Distillery tours from Friday 21st May, initially for a maximum of 6 people per tour and with two tours per day. Please see our Tours page [link] for more information and to book. We will allow a maximum of 3 groups per tour (groups could be a household or social bubble, up to a maximum of 6 people per tour in total).
If you have a ticket for a postponed tour and would like to rebook, please contact us via email.
We take cleanliness at the distillery very seriously and can assure you that newly introduced procedures and cleaning processes are designed to ensure both visitor and staff safety.
Please note we have suspended our minibus pickup and will reintroduce this service when we feel it is safe to do so.
Our Distillery shop will be open from Friday 16th April for walk in customers and for click and collect orders. We offer our full range of spirits including special editions. Please check our opening hours here.
You will be asked to sanitise your hands on entry and not touch any of the display stock. Payment will be by credit card only.
From Friday 16th April we will be opening the gates to our open-air bar. Our outdoor garden seats a maximum of 56 people and is located at the top of South Park in the grounds of our Distillery.
All tables are socially distanced (2m or more) and can seat from 4 to 10 people. Booking is not required. We have two outdoor toilets that will be cleaned every two hours. Our staff wear face coverings when serving and hand sanitiser is always available. Check our opening hours here.
Thank you for all your support throughout these tricky times - we have been honoured by your support and for being part of this community.
And most importantly, we ‘re delighted to be welcoming you back.
