Updated : 24 June 2020

Following the government update on 23 June, we are delighted to confirm that our distillery tours & experiences will re-start from Saturday 18th July.

Our distillery shop has already re-opened.

Our shop opening hours are Wed-Sat, 10am-5pm; Sunday 10am-4pm; Closed Mon-Tues.

We have a hand sanitiser station on entrance to the shop (our own sanitiser!) and will for the time being be operating a one-in, one-out system. We appreciate your patience if you need to wait.

All those who were booked onto an experience during the period of UK lockdown have been contacted by email to advise on how to re-book. If you have not received an email and hold a deferred booking for March – 17 July please email us at [email protected]

Shakespeare Distillery Gift Vouchers recipients can have the expiry date extended by 4-months to account for the lockdown closure.
Please note that our gift voucher expiry date is the date by which the recipient simply needs to make their booking online or by phone by, and not necessarily the date by which they have to take their experience.

For those in possession of a Travelzoo tour voucher expiring during 2020 they have now been extended until 31.12.20.

For those in possession of a Virgin Experience Days voucher for one of our experiences, these can now be redeemed again or extended for 6 months free of charge by visiting their website, https://www.virginexperiencedays.co.uk/myvoucher

As a small independent business we would like to thank you for the support you have shown us during this difficult period and we look forward to welcoming you back to the distillery from 18 July.

Our online shop is still available and we will continue to dispatch Gin (and Hand Sanitiser!) to keep you well supplied at home.

Simon & Peter
