FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions)

Not quite sure what it's all about yet? We're happy to answer some of your most frequently asked questions.

How many people will be on a journey?
  • There will be 18 to 20 people on each gin journey, sometimes less, but we often sell out.

How do we get around?
  • Forget walking tours. The Gin Journey is chauffeur driven. Our Gin Carriage (posh mini bus) will chauffeur guests from venue to venue with the Gin Guardian providing chat and tunes along the way.

What time will it start?
  • On weeknights we kick off at 6.15pm. On Saturdays we start at 1.45pm.

And finish?
  • On Saturdays we finish at around 6:30pm and on weeknights at around 23:00. Depending on how long the journey takes this can change a little.

How many drinks do I get?
  • You will typically receive one beautifully crafted gin cocktail and one gin sample, per person, per bar. For the mathletes amongst you, you will have worked out that's ten drinks each!

Can we eat on the Gin Journey?
  • Food is not provided as part of the ticket price but during the Journey we stop at a venue where it is possible to order food.

We’re from out of town and visiting for the day. Where should we stay? Is the Gin Journey suitable for gluten intolerant guests?
  • Gin is made from highly distilled spirit, during the distillation process the gluten from the base product is all but removed. Unless extremely sensitive to gluten the Gin Journey is suitable for the gluten intolerant.

Can your child join the Gin Journey but not drink?
  • Unfortunately not. The majority of the venues we use do not have the license the accept minors onto their premises. You must be of legal drinking age to attend the Gin Journey.

Do you accept Hen or Stag parties?
  • It is our policy to not accept large groups on a hen or stag party.

  • Although we understand you are out for a good time and of course we’d love the business, our hands have been burnt too many times with this style of booking. Some of our groups have been well behaved and a pleasure to Gin Journey with but I’m afraid we’ve had our fair share of bad experiences too. The bars we use do not accept hen or stag parties for bookings so it is not fair on them if we bring them as part of our event. Our main priority is maintaining a good relationship with our venues as we use them week in week out.

  • No hen or stag paraphernalia is allowed what so ever.

  • I hope you understand our position and wish you luck in finding a suitable event.

What is your cancellation policy?
  • Once your payment has been made, we do not accept cancellations of your order or the amendment of dates. This includes Gift Voucher bookings made over email.

What is the accessibility like for people who are less abled walkers on your Gin Journey?
  • The Gin Journey is a tour that aims to visit bars which are off the beaten track and therefore the accessibility to some of the venues is not adequate for guests who can not scale stairs continuously throughout the event. Please email us to find out the exact route of the tour and you can then decide whether if it is a tour you wish to attend. The Gin Journey unfortunately is not suitable for those who are not fully mobile.

Where are the terms and conditions?
