Fantastic evening, Louise is a great host and very knowledgeable. Can't wait to visit the shop. Thought the Xmas gifts were fab.
Always super helpful with anything. Louise, Heather and all the team always make you feel welcome.
Its nice to be able to try before you buy and there is always a huge choice of selection at the shop.
One of our favourite places to visit!
After having to cancel a friend's original birthday celebrations we decided to do a virtual gin master class and celebrate virtually.
I recieved the package of 5 gins and mixers and a selection of nibbles.
Lou hosted the masterclass, informing us all about the making of the gin and it's flavours. Lou was a fabulous host who was knowledgeable about her field, but made the experience personal to the group and felt like she was one of the party.
Everyone had a fab night and enjoyed tasting new flavours and styles.
It was an amazing experience thanks to Lou, the variety of gin and tonic was such a lovely selection. The ability to get everything to everyone while we were all on lockdown was brilliant.
Lou did a great job during our zoom session providing details about the gins and the tonic not to mention her great personality with the group as well.
Highly recommended 😁❤
They were great arranging and delivering the delicious scones, cream, jam, wine and chocolate to my mum. Mum said the scones and jam etc are delicious and she thought the chocolate was really lovely. For mum to say this means they are fantastic. Thank you for making my mum happy in this lonely time.
Ive visited the Cheese, GIn and Ale barn before but since Lockdown myself and my husband have signed up to two of the virtual gin nights and they have been amazing! A real 'Tonic' excuse the pun to lockdown life!! I can't wait ot get back to the shop and have mooch! Lovely business with a great vibe and very knowlegedable. I love that they stock the more exclusive gins and not just the usual stock! Many thanks for two great evenings! We hope to book you for a real one when we are allowed.
Virtual tasting in place of a Ladies Weekend away for a dear friends 50th birthday, cancelled due to COVID19. Didn't know what to expect, had an absolute blast of a time. The gin tasting was great. All those selected were high quality and so were the accompanying mixers which were perfectly paired. I went into it thinking I didn't really like gin but now realise it was Schweppes Tonic all along that I didn't like! Really opened my eyes and now I'll be trying more gins. Louise the host was brilliant, a lovely party host who is very knowledgable and lots of fun too! Really enjoyed it, turned a sadly cancelled weekend that was meant to be great into one to remember. Thanks to Louise for being such a fabulous host, see you in the shop soon and you can guide me towards some more tasty gin!
Attended a virtual gin tasting session with friends. The gins, tonics and snacks were delivered in advance and the call was held via zoom. We had such a good time. The gins were amazing, and Louise took her time to go through each one. Can't wait to visit the shop!
I have always loved the shop and the ‘in house’ gin tastings but the newly re-fashioned at-home gin tastings have been fabulous. I know how hard Louise and her staff are working and deserve every success
Lou’s virtual gin tasting was brilliant, as a non local she made us feel super welcome and gave us such a good selection of local gins and treats to taste that we’d otherwise never have tried. The mango cheese and chutney was a definite highlight of the tasting and I’ll be buying some. 100% recommend the products and events hosted by these guys and hope we can make it there in person one day!

Lou was so much fun during our company’s virtual gin tasting night! She’s had a great knowledge on the topic and could probably talk for hours on end about it :) I really enjoyed the honey blossom gin! The sides that came along with the drinks were mouthwatering! I absolutely loved the mango chutney cheese and the dark mint chocolate, not paired together that is, but in general. I’ll be ordering them in abundance! Thanks so much
Amazing virtual gin tasting session with Lou.. Really enjoyed the experience and the particularly loved the attention and detail that went into the "care" package I got prior to it.. Imagine the in house experience is well worth a try!
What a brilliant local business. I was lucky enough to have a hamper for my birthday which included delicious cheeses, special biscuits, olives, chutney, chocolate , gin, tonic... Not only were all the contents interesting and varied but the presentation and delivery to my door (safely) made my day! I was so impressed that I ordered a hamper for my nephew and received excellent personal customer service from Louise to check what type of products he would like, including a photograph of the hamper to check. My nephew was delighted and as a foodie was really pleased with the range of tasty unique products. I would highly recommend this local business for the fantastic range of products, great value for money and excellent personal service!
Fantastic range of cheeses and accompaniments, various Gins and ales that Louise is more than happy to let you sample, we were honestly spoilt for choice! I also received a delivery of cheese over the Easter weekend that was absolutely amazing, will definitely be ordering more soon, thank you!
