Event description


Distillery visit including two drinks, neat samples and a gin talk. £20 per person.

Forest Distillery

Arrival drink

Double measure of Forest Gin and tonic on arrival.

History of gin

One of our team will talk you through the remarkable rise, fall, and rise again of the spirit.


Learn how we create our award winning gin with an introduction to the botanicals and the process we use to distill. Enjoy a gin tasting experience of both the gins we produce.


A second large gin and tonic will be served accompanied with a description of the perfect serve. Step outside, relax and breath easy in the fresh Peak District air (air provided free of charge!). You may want to converse with the local sheep at this point.

History of Forest Gin

We'll talk you through our story so far and give you the chance to ask any questions that you may have.

  • Please note that we have no car parking on site, so all vehicles are to be left on the lane by the gate.

  • Due to our remote location, we reserve the right to cancel the event at short notice in the event of poor weather conditions (snow!). In such event, you will be offered a full refund or alternative date.

  • We do not have WiFi on site, and our heating is pretty poor, so please wrap up warm and be prepared to miss the outside world whilst here.

  • Please be aware that all G&T's contain a double measure of Gin. Please make our staff aware if you would like a single measure.


Are there ID or minimum age requirements to enter the event?
Over 18's only, but challenge 25 is a policy we operate at all times. Please don't be offended if we ask for ID.

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Unfortuntatly no car parking is available at the distillery itself for the general public. Disabled car parking is available upon request; any special requirments please let us know is advance.
Car parking is availble on the road at the bottom of the drive. Alternitively, there are multiple car parks located in the forest so pop your walking boots on and gin will be waiting for you when you arrive! If you wish to organise a taxi then we recommend booking it in advance due to phone signal being rubbish. The Stanley arms is a good pick up point as it's much easier to find.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?
Any questions don't hesitate to email distillery@forestgin.com or call us on 01260 253245.

What's the refund policy?
Unfortunately tickets are none refundable and can not be exchanged for another date.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?
Yes, that is fine.

Do you allow dogs and children?

Unfortunately dogs and children are not permitted on the tour. The distillery bar is open to the general public Tuesday though Friday every week 1pm until 5pm. During this time, we do allow children and (dry) dogs.

Where can I go for lunch nearby?

The Stanley Arms is a short walk away and have an excellent, hearty, English pub style menu. Alternatively, the Teggs Nose tea room is a 5 minute drive away.

Do you provide food?

We have very basic kitchen facilities here, so only simple nibbles such as crisps can be served on request. You are welcome to bring along sandwiches etc so long as you remove your own waste.

Can I Buy a Bottle?

Purchases of an extra G&T, a cocktail, a blanket or a bottle are available from the bar. Most major credit cards accepted.

Can I smoke on site?

Sorry, but as a working distillery, we have a strict no smoking policy anywhere on the premises.

Is the bar open afterwards?

We allow an additional 30 minutes at the end of your tour for any further drinks. If we have another tour booked, then I'm afraid that we will kick you out with the sheep once they arrive!

For any further questions, please e-mail distillery@forestgin.com or call us on 01260 253245
