Gin School Closure

It is with great sadness that following the new government advice we are closing the Devon Gin school for the foreseeable future.  If you have a booking we hope that you will help support us as a small business by opting to postpone your booking rather than cancel and we will re-schedule your booking once we are able to open again.  If you’d like to purchase vouchers for the future, perhaps for friends, we will be having an expiry now at 18months rather than 12months, again this would be a huge help for us as a small business.

The team at Devon Distillery have been working tirelessly since the start of this year to ready our new gin school location at Dartington, which only opened on Friday.  We will be reducing our operations across Devon Distillery as well, large scale gin productions and our mobile operations.  If you have bookings or queries regarding anything please do get in touch as I will be doing my best to stay on top of communications during this time.

We have been working on a number of exciting projects and I hope we will be able to make announcements about these as things improve as well.

 Please email for any information.

 Best wishes
