“I have visited many distilleries over the last few years and I can honestly say that my experience at Grandad Jacks has been the best ever. David, our tour guide and grandson of ‘Jack’ was just so knowledgeable and personable and really delightful. Mica was our server at the bar – she was also so personable and it was obvious she loves her work at the distillery. So – apart from the great vibe from David and Mica – the gin is amazing. I can’t speak highly enough from my experience here. I highly recommend this distillery as a great place to visit. Their coffee gin is to die for!” – Jennifer Kellett
