Switch Up The Summer With Our Distillery Experiences!

Are you looking for a new way to let your hair down this summer?

Whether you’re after a new way to appreciate gin, an upgrade from the usual brunches or a fun alternative to your customary date night, here at The Shropshire Distillery we’ve got something for everyone to enjoy.

Passionate about providing a real and transparent service, we’ve always done exactly what we put on the tin (or in our case, bottle!) Driven by our desire to create honest, flavoursome spirits that anyone can enjoy, our thoughts have only ever been about delivering the best possible experience to our customers.

First opening the Distillery’s doors back in May 2021 for our Gin School and Tour Experiences was one of the best decisions we could have made for our business. It was our first opportunity to really show off our Distillery but also to have face-to-face interaction with our customers. It’s allowed people to see the reality of what we offer and really appreciate the love, thought and hard work that goes into our spirits.

So, of course we didn’t stop there! Now offering three different types of experience, we’ve got something to offer for varying purposes and personalities…

Gin Tasting, Tour & Talk

Who is it designed for?

Aimed at fellow gin enthusiasts and those interested in finding out more about the Distillery, our Gin Tasting Tour & Talk is a real insight into our story.

Whether you’re curious about what led us to open our business, the work that really goes into it or just want to see what a working Distillery actually looks like, this is definitely the experience for you.

What to expect:

With a welcome drink waiting for you on your arrival, the experience certainly starts off on the right foot! Savour your spirit over a meet and greet with distiller and day-to-day runner, Emma.

You’ll then be taken on a trip straight down memory lane with an insight into the history of gin and The Shropshire Distillery story. Find out all about the Gin Shed, where our business first started, our re-branding and newest spirits and everything that happened in between!

Next is a tour of the Distillery where you’ll get a proper good look at a real local Distillery and see where all of our creations are made and thought up! Followed by a Q&A session, you’ll have the opportunity to ask any budding questions you may have about our business or the products we have on offer.

Lastly (but by no means least!) everyone will get to enjoy not one, not two but four different signature serve G&T’s from The Shropshire Gin Collection.

With our 5-star reviews on Google , it’s no secret that a lot of thought and effort goes into our sessions, and your trip will be no exception!

So if we’ve piqued your curiosity, or you know someone that would love to see the reality of a real working Distillery, book onto our Tasting, Tour & Talk session here and join us for a couple of hours of all things Shropshire Distillery.

Gin School Experience

Who is it designed for?

Perfect for a budding Distiller or just someone happy to disappear into the world of botanicals for a few hours, our Gin School Experience lets you design and distil your very own gin to bottle, label, taste and take home!

What to expect:

Our students for the day will start off with a true distiller’s welcome, a drink and meet and greet with our full-time distiller, Emma. You’ll then be shown your very own work station, equipped with a mini copper still for the creations you’ll come up with later.

Don’t worry you wont be thrown into the deep end, first you’ll have a botanical talk and introduction followed by guidance and tutoring from Emma, we’ll give you everything you need to handcraft your own delicious 70cl gin to take home.

Bu the fun doesn’t stop there! As a distiller for the day, you’ll then get to enjoy four different signature G&T’s from The Shropshire Gin Collection topped off with a G&T made with your own gin! You’ll then have the opportunity to sample expressions of available Shropshire Distillery Limited Edition releases with the option to keep your brand new recipe on file for re-ordering at a later date.
