Devon Gin & Distilleries in Devon
On This Page: Devon Gin and Distillery directory, reviews and tasting notes, distillery tours and gin schools in Devon, interviews with Devon distillers, and more.
As well as being a beautiful county of glorious countryside and coastlines that are brimming with botanicals and inspiration, Devon has a long history with gin and other spirits that precedes the wave of exciting new distilleries that have launched there in recent years. Devon is of course home to the iconic and historic Plymouth Gin and the county was also renowed for the opportunities that its rugged coastline presented for smuggling spirts such as gin and rum. With some wonderful gins being made in the county and many distilleries being open for tours and tastings, it is a gin lovers paradise!
