DISTILLERY TOUR FAQ'S

See below a list of frequently asked questions for our distillery tours...

 

Q: I am driving / I don't drink - do I have to drink gin?
A: No, we definitely wouldn't recommend partaking in the gin tasting or G&T's if you are driving.
If you are driving, or if you would prefer not to drink, we can provide soft drinks instead - please inform us when booking.

Q: I really don't like tonic, can I have lemonade instead?
A: Yes of course, just let us know your preference on arrival.

Q: Is the venue covid safe?
A: As we are a new venue, we have only ever been open in 'covid times'! Therefore we have always worked within guidance. We are currently operating with reduced numbers on tours & events.

Q: Am I required to wear a mask?
A: Face coverings are no longer a legal requirement in indoor settings. As our distillery tour is a gin experience in which you will be sipping a G&T, sampling tasters, as well as smelling botanicals, we do not stipulate that you wear a face covering. However if you feel more comfortable wearing a face covering then you are welcome to do so.

Q: Are children allowed to come on the distillery tour?
A: No, unfortunately not. All attendees must be 18 or over.

Q: Will I need ID?
A: If you are lucky enough to look under 25, please be prepared to show ID on arrival.

Q: Can I book as a stag / hen party / group booking?
A: We do not accept stag / hen parties or large groups on public tours. If you wish to take part in one of our tours as a large group please email us before you book on bookings@stockport-gin.com and we can discuss your options with you.

Q: Is the shop / distillery wheelchair accessible?
A: Our shop and distillery are wheelchair accessible but please do let us know beforehand if you require wheelchair access, or have any other specific requirements, so we can make your experience with us as enjoyable as possible.
