Fantastic day out
Oct 2021 • Couples
Completed the whisky masterclass and thoroughly enjoyed every aspect of it. The history of whisky and the tour were expertly presented by Brian and Amanda, then into the tasting and sampling the sublime whisky that the distillery produces. Once we had established our favourite blends we made our own blends to take home along with a bottle of the signature blend. A great gift, a great day and a great brand and company

Not a bad tour but would have loved to see a bit more
Oct 2021 • Couples
Good tour but didn't get too see much of the actual distillery, we did get to wonder in and experience the smells but I would have loved to see the "wort" actually being fermented and seen the stills in action close up. (The pic is the closest we got)

The cask warehouse and tasting parts were brilliant though

Wonderful place to spend a wet afternoon in the Cotswolds
Sep 2021
Four of us joined a tour booked with Groupon vouchers which proved very good value. I won't spoil your experience by detailing every detail but suffice to say it was the best activity we have had recently; interesting, informative and delicious!

Hattie was our guide throughout and stayed with us after the tour for our tasting. We did not feel rushed at any point but ended up spending over £70 in the shop afterwards. Just check the price of the items before you spend as we noticed the Whisky was £9 cheaper at Tesco than in their shop.

We actually visited several years ago before their whiskey was ready. The distillery has now vastly expanded and definitely worth another visit if you haven't been recently.

Thank you Hattie for a lovely afternoon :) xx

Excellent tour and tasting experience. Friendly and knowledgeable guide. Informative tour that concluded with a good selection of testers. For drivers there was a goody bag to take away with a choice of tasters. Very enjoyable morning out. Cafe was great too.

Great value tasting experience with gorgeous cafe
Oct 2021 • Friends
Ellie was great tour guide and very informative ! I thought this was great value and opportunity to taste whisky or gin not tried before! We made a day of it with some lovely lunch in the cafe afterwards ! Pizza was amazing and the cake slice is enough to share but was amazing. All staff were helpful and would happily visit again

Spacious car park, but gravel so if on a bike be careful and we squeezed onto a bit of hard standing to park.
Lovely building. Staff friendly.
Tours available (will return on a later date to experience one!).
Great food at very reasonable prices. Good coffee.
Distillery shop….. oh dear…… I spent FAR too much! Haha!
Sampled a couple…… so had to leave with a lovely bottle of single malt aged in sherry oak.
Gins also available, so am taking the wife next time!!
Well worth a stop.

Just superb!

The Cotswolds Distillery is a must visit if you are in the area! Ellie (our tour guide) was great - informative, helpful, but most of all fun! Beautiful location and beautiful property. Tastings at the end of the tour are informative and tutored, and it's great to be able to choose what you taste.

The takeaway tastings for drivers are an excellent idea as you don't miss out.

We had tasted some Cotswolds Distillery products previously via a zoom tasting with Dan Szor during lockdown, so it was great to be able to taste some new products this time around.

I cannot recommend this visit highly enough. Great fun, and great products!
