SEE the still

Come and have a nose around!

If you would like to pop in for a quick visit, feel free to stop by anytime between 12 noon and 6pm from Saturday to Thursday. (See our opening times below.) We always have free samples on the go so you can try before you buy!

Or, if you’re after the full works, you might prefer to book a ‘liquid tour’ in advance. This means you can enjoy a gin flight of Persie expressions in the distillery tasting room – followed by special editions or cocktail samples – for £15 per head. You can hear all about the backstory of Persie Gin, the botanicals, the process and the brand, then have a tour of where the magic happens. This tends to last about an hour and a half.

The liquid tours do not run every day due to our distilling and bottling schedule – so please book in advance. To find out dates and times, drop a line to and let us know when you’d like to come and we will check the diary to see what’s possible. And if you’re staying locally, please ask about our pick up and drop off service: if we can help with a lift, we will!*

One last thing! If you’re booking a tour for a special occasion, it might be worth thinking about a personalised label for that special someone. We can create a bespoke label for your family member or friend and make sure their gin bottle is ready and waiting to present to them after the tour. Just email and we will take all the details and work out a plan 🙂

*Our collection service is for over 18s only. (Except dogs. We will give a lift to dogs of all ages!)

Note: Persie Distillery is dog friendly! Nicely behaved dogs are welcome in the tasting room but sadly not in production areas.

Persie Gin Tastings & Events

At the Distillery

If you’d like to have the place to yourself, we run private liquid tours at Persie Distillery for groups of 10 or more for £15 per head. This is ideal for Christmas parties! It includes 6 gin samples and a behind-the-scenes tour of the distillery.

Or, if you’re after something bespoke, we offer a number of personalised gin tasting options from £20 per head, including: Cocktail Masterclass; Gin & Food Pairing; Gin & Patisserie Pairing; or a Gin Nosing & Tasting with 80 different gins from all over the world. This is ideal for hen or stag parties, birthday celebrations or family reunions. We also add value with a free gift for the bride-to-be/special guest, and can work up a personalised gin label as a present.

On the Road

Our most popular tasting at private venues is A Three Course Meal in Gin. This session will take you on a tour of the fruity, savoury and sweet profiles of the gin flavour wheel, helping you to understand the botanicals in the distillation process, how that results in the nose and flavour composition, and which gin appeals most to your palate. This costs £22 per head for 6 x 25ml measures of gin. We require a minimum of 25 people. Volume discounts are available on request: email
