Distillery Tour & Tasting
Join us here at Maidstone Distillery as we immerse you in our world for 90 minutes of spirited fun.
Situated in the historic market buildings of Maidstone town centre, our beautiful still and equipment sit at the heart of our distillery, nestled beneath grand arches dating back to the 1800’s. Guests are warmly welcomed with a double George Bishop gin and tonic at our bar before being guided through to our experience room to start the tour. Here we delve into the fascinating story of distilling right here in the county town of Kent that spans over 200 years, and demonstrate the processes we use to create our fine hand crafted spirits today. You will get to see our beautiful still and equipment up close, before it’s time again back at the bar for a tutored tasting of our spirits as we talk about the inspiration behind them.

Me and my partner took my parents here when they were over visiting from Belfast. We were given a gin on arrival (which was really refreshing). The tour itself gave the whole background to gin, how it came to England and specifically Maidstone which was really interesting. Our guide Naomi had a great sense of humour, by the end of the tour we’d got to know everyone else and we’re full of laughter! The guy serving drinks at the bar looked after us really well. Great time had by all and would highly recommend the tour and their gin!
A fantastic little distillery with so much to offer.
The tour was so interesting I didn’t know there was so much to learn about Gin and its history in Maidstone.
Fantastic evening, learned lots about Maidstone history and how to make the delicious Gin from Sam!! Well worth a visit if you like a great G&T and fancy doing something a bit different all for the price of a main course!

We had such a great time at the distillery last night. We had a 4.45 tour which included a tasting and a gin and tonic included at the start.
The staff were really friendly and Sam and Darren are clearly very passionate about their business.
Really enjoyable and have already recommended the tour to others.
