The distillery is based in a rural location so please ensure you arrive 10 minutes early, wrap up warm if it is cold out, and wear sensible shoes (no heels, no open toe shoes etc).
Gorilla Spirits Co. is a working distillery so please ensure your clothes and footwear are suitable for the situation.
Information for Drivers
As we are based in the rural countryside we appreciate there may have to be a designated driver in your group. We take our responsibility towards your safety on the roads, and the safety of the public, very seriously, so unfortunately the driver will not be able to take part in any tasting sessions (however, we will of course provide them with an exceptional non-alcoholic cocktail to make up for it!).
There are a limited number of parking spaces available at the distillery, so please call in advance to book. We’re also happy to recommend local taxi companies so everyone in the group can enjoy the experience fully.
Gorilla Spirits Co. Distillery Shop
Our distillery shop is open Wednesday to Saturday 10.00am – 5.00pm and Sunday 11.00am – 2.00pm.
Food, Drink and Accommodation
We don’t have a restaurant or food available to purchase on site, and while some of our longer experiences do provide refreshments, you may be looking for something more substantial for before or after your visit. We can recommend some fantastical local places for you to eat, drink or stay:
