Winchester Distillery remains closed to reduce the spread of COVID-19.  Please visit their website for up to date information on re-opening plans.


Nestling at the western end of the South Downs Way, surrounded by rolling Hampshire countryside, crystal clear chalk streams and watercress beds for which the county is known, you will find Winchester Distillery.

Home of Twisted Nose Watercress Gin and Wasabi Vodka, Winchester Dry Gin and Hampshire Fine Dry Gin, Winchester Distillery uses traditional methods and local botanicals sourced from the surrounding landscape to create its range of small-batch premium spirits.

All products are crafted by hand using closely-guarded recipes as a guide and the master distiller’s ‘twisted nose’ to fine-tune each batch to perfection.

Distillery Tours take place on a Saturday each month and cost £15 for the 90 minute experience. Led by one of the distillery team, you’ll enjoy a G&T overlooking the watercress beds, learn the history of gin, take a deep dive into the production process and meet Persephone, the still.

During the second half of the session, make yourself comfortable in the tasting room and sample Winchester Distillery’s range of premium Hampshire spirits.

Gift vouchers are available. Please note that tours must be pre-booked and are only available to over 18s. Each ticket will give you £5 towards spirits purchased on the day of your visit. For more information and to purchase tickets, please visit
