Age restrictions

Minimum age

The minimum age for consuming alcohol in the UK is 18.

Age checks

If purchasing / consuming alcohol, you may be asked to prove your age.

Can I still take part if I can't prove my age?

Entry to the Discover Tour is permitted for ages 13+ (if accompanied by an adult) but you won't be able to purchase / consume alcohol and we will only be able to serve non-alcoholic alternatives e.g. water / soft drinks.

For the Gin Tasting Masterclass / Gin School Experience - entry to the event will be refused.

Can I get a refund if I can't prove my age on the day of the event?

Refunds are unavailable if an acceptable proof of age cannot be supplied.

Rescheduling may be possible but is assessed on a case by case basis.
