Distillery Tours

We’ve opened the doors of our farm-based distillery in Hertfordshire to invite guests to take a tour, learn all there is to know about how we craft our spirits and try the full range in the company of our distilling team.

You’ll be welcomed with a gin and tonic* to sip while being guided through the gin making process, how we make our spirits and what makes them uniquely Copper in the Clouds. 

We’ll guide you through our range of 5 gins with tonic water to mix with your samples and our team will be able to offer serving suggestions and cocktail recipes for you to try at home.

All of the products you try will be available for purchase on the day and you’ll even be able to wax dip your own bottle to take home with you.

Total session time will last approximately 1.5 hours. This is a standing tour and tasting, no seating will be provided. Please let us know of any accessibility requirements in advance.

*Alcohol free welcome drink available on request

Gift vouchers are available to purchase and make the perfect gift for any gin lover.

Distillery Tour Reviews
Fun, interesting, different. Artisanal gin distillery tour. James spoke expertly and enthusiastically about the wonder that is his gin. He was fascinating and friendly.

The gins are delicious if you haven’t tried them yet! We would highly recommend this experience.

I went for the distillery tour at the weekend and absolutely loved it. James, the gin expert, was incredibly knowledgeable and welcoming, with some great stories about the history and production of gin.

We got to sample some of the products and were absolutely blown away. This stuff is amazing!

If you're in the area, definitely give this place a visit.
— Chris D.
I took my two best girlfriends for the gin tasting and tour and we loved every minute. The tour was full of information, which included gin and rum tasting! You could come away quite pickled! A lovely company with incredible products - we all bought a bottle to take home and will be buying more in the future! Definitely worth a visit - maybe get a taxi or someone to pick you up though :)
— Maddie D.
Great visit! Very welcoming, knowledgeable and plenty of samples …. It’s hard to choose a favourite. Would definitely recommend it.
