Portsmouth Gin Distillery tour and shop visit

Take a tour of The Portsmouth Distillery organised by the Staff Social Club set in the stunning Fort Cumberland at Eastney point (PO4 9LD) for £15 per person. On the Saturday 1st February 2020 meeting at the entrance at 3pm. Please book your tickets on the online store ASAP as the places are limited.

The format will be a full tour of the facilities, with expert explanations about the processes used in the creation of our fine spirits. You will learn about our passion and history, before visiting the jewel in our crown for a tasting and a chance to soak up some of the history of the place we are proud to call home. Your ticket will also include a proper drink, with the chance to buy further drinks if so inclined. There is a shop at the distillery so you will be able to take something home to continue to enjoy The Portsmouth Distillery at your leisure.

On the day of your tour access to the Distillery is via the entrance gate to Fort Cumberland off Fort Cumberland Road just opposite the Southsea Marina. There is ample parking. Whether on foot or in a vehicle just push the intercom button at the gate and tell the security that you are here for a tour of the distillery. On entering follow the road round to the right, passing a large shed on the right, with the main fort structure to your left, just past the shed you will find the distillery on your right.

Buy your ticket on the Online Store.

  1. Why is this advertised on the staff website? There is no price reduction or special arrangements, as far as I can tell. Is this truly just product placement?

    • Hi Wolfgang, this trip is organised by the Staff Social Club for staff. I have amended the article to make this clearer. Many thanks.
