A group enjoying a Cocktail masterclass at Judith'sWe’re delighted to announce that Shakespeare Distillery has been ranked in the top ten of the best Gin Distillery experiences in the UK, according to new research! South Western Railway has carried out the research to uncover the UK’s top 10 favourite gin distilleries with 122 sites competing against one another. The train operator analysed Google reviews, TikTok views, Instagram hashtags and Google searches to award each distillery, which span England, Wales, Scotland, and Northern Ireland, a score out of 100. We were the only Warwickshire and Midlands Distillery to make the list. Reference was made to the fact that we had scored a high percentage of five-star reviews at 96%.

Our team’s hard work and commitment to running 5 star experiences is paying off! We are so proud to be Stratford upon Avon’s Visitor Attraction of the Year and now the best distillery experience in the Midlands!”
