Breweries and distilleries

Distilleries and brewery tours

Fancy making your pint rather than just drinking it? Or even just finding out more about how it ended up in the glass in front of you? Discover how your favourite tipple is created at one of the many tours of distilleries and breweries around the country. There are many independent gin emporiums busy handcrafting one of our most popular beverages and even a whisky distillery. Whether it’s an ale trail in Cumbria offering brewery tours including stop-offs at artisan microbreweries, or a cider route through Herefordshire, remember to bring along a designated driver.
