The oldest working Gin distillery in the world is in Plymouth


The oldest British gin distillery still operating in its original location, Plymouth Gin is a titan in the drinks world and worthy of the continued affection held by many gin fans. Contrary to the London Dry style that has come to dominate today’s gin market,

Plymouth Gin continues to be true to its roots and has retained its own distinct character. Produced in a still which has not been changed for over 150 years, it has a subtle yet full bodied flavour and a slightly subdued juniper. The Plymouth Gin distillery (formerly known as the Black Friars Distillery) is now the only gin distillery remaining in the town of Plymouth, located in what was once a Dominican Order monastery built in 1431.
