The experience was fantastic! Brett is very knowledgeable and fun to listen to. His stories about the history and the science of making gin were very entertaining and informative. The process itself is very fun, with you being able to pick out of a wide variety of ingredients to make you own gin. The lunch that comes with the experience was also very tasty. Would do it again!

Russell our guide was polite professional and informative. He was attentive to everyone’s questions and concerns. 10 out of 10 to Russell! The winery’s were a lovely choice however the lunch was a little skimpy for a hungry and well fuelled group of individuals while at Saltram estate. Thank you to Russell for a wonderful day!
