Plymouth Gin Distillery

Plymouth Gin Distillery

Traditional gin near Plymouth's harbour...

Nestled in a former monastery near Sutton Harbour, Plymouth is the Plymouth Gin Distillery. The oldest part of the building dates back to the 1400s but distilling first took place here in 1793 making this the oldest working gin distillery in England.

At the suggestion of a good friend I took the tour when I was in the area.

Good friends are nearly always conducive to finding new and interesting pubs. And so it was earlier in the week that I found myself hungry, pint-less, and late arriving at a Greene King pub opposite Baker Street station. A few of my partners in crime had already had the opportunity to quaff a pint (or two) and eat when I arrived. I, however, decided to heed the advice that we would be moving on to a more salubrious establishment as soon as the final straggler arrived.
