The Gin Nest is Torbay's premier gin-making experience.

You will be guided in the art of distilling your own craft gin using a traditional copper pot still. We provide alcoholic or non alcoholic drinks during the experience, and a 500ml bottle of your hand-crafted gin to take home with you.

You have the opportunity to personalise your experience to suit any occasion. We take individual bookings or group bookings.

Talk to the team today if you want to book for a space for a rainy day, a birthday, hen party, or any other event.

The Gin Nest provides each person with the chance to design and create their own one-off bottle of gin to take home with them using a traditional copper pot still. During the gin-making experience there is discussion on the history of gin, the different styles of gin, methods of distillation and botanicals used. Choose your own botanicals, create your label and bottle your gin.

    This was an excellent birthday present. Two of us made a bottle of gin. We were lucky and only one other person doing the experience. Andy was very helpful about which botanicals work or would be overpowering. Started with a complimentary drink at the bar, whilst making and after. Fascinating experience and delicious gin at the end!

    Amazing experience and customer service. Offered us a coffee on arrival. Good tuition for first time gin makers. They also came round with a couple of gins to drink during the brewing. Close to Torquay and easily commutable. Very memorable. You even get to name your own gin to take home.

    A brilliant afternoon making gin, learning about the process, the botanicals and the history of gin making, whilst enjoying some gin tasting too! A great well to celebrate a birthday with family or friends.

    Fantastic introduction to gin making - very interesting and fun..... Paul was very informative and guided us throughout the process along with providing us with several gin&tonics whilst producing our own craft gin - would highly recommend!🙂

    What a fantastic experience. This was bought for me as a birthday treat and my sister and I and our daughters had a great time. It is such a lovely environment and the gin-making was us actually making a gin containing our favourite ingredients (sorry botanicals!). We went on 4th Feb so we haven’t tasted our gins just yet. Looking forward to having our own tasting of all 5 gins!!! If you want something special, this is it. Oh and there also is a fantastic wine shop.
