    Rademon Estate Distillery is now offering exclusive pre-booked tour and tasting experiences, which will unlock some of the secrets and skills that go into creating Shortcross.

    After the tour, discover the Visitors Centre and the Shortcross Gin Bar. Enjoy a guided tasting of Shortcross Gin and browse in the Distillery Shop.

    Pre-booked tours will be held from Tuesday to Friday, with three tours per day, lasting a duration of 90 minutes. Due to this being a working distillery, visitors must wear suitable footwear (no open toes or stiletto heels).
