BROWSE THE UK'S WIDEST VARIETY OF SPIRITS & LIQUEURS DISTILLED UNDER ONE ROOF

Nestled in the sleepy Essex countryside lies historic Great Yeldham Hall. A quintessentially English property with origins in the 13th century. The complex includes the Black Barn, a charming Grade II listed Victorian barn, which is home to our distilling hall and small batch copper pot stills, as well as being the home of English Rum, Sambuca and Baijiu.

A DISTILLERY TOUR & TASTING EXPERIENCE LIKE NO OTHER

 Experience a Distillery Tour & Tasting, where you’ll see how we distil the UK's widest variety of spirits under one roof: including World’s Best Vodka, Gin, Rum and more. You'll learn about every step of the distilling process; from fermentation and scratch-distilling our own base spirits in our unique copper pot alembic stills, to barrel-ageing and bottling up.

After looking around our working distillery, you’ll make your way to our Tasting Room for a guided tasting through our wide range of award-winning spirits & liqueurs. Each has been created from scratch by Master Distiller Dr John Walters, and our collection of special editions includes spirits not found anywhere else in the UK.

ALL OF OUR TOURS ARE £20 PER PERSON
