A CRAFT spirits company has officially opened its new distillery and visitor centre.

Gorilla Spirits Company, based in Upton Grey, has relocated from its former site in Four Marks where it had operated since 2015.

The new distillery means the company can offer scheduled tours so visitors can see behind the scenes of the working site, learn about how the company creates its award-winning spirits and get to taste some too.

Cocktail masterclasses and a gin school are also featured at the new site.

Founder and managing director Andy Daniels said: “We had tremendous support from our customers and the community in Four Marks but we desperately needed more space and were unable to expand on the site.

"Our new site is approximately eight times larger and so as well as having expanded production facilities we’ve also been able to create a fabulous visitor centre."

The company donates £1 to gorilla conservation for every bottle it sells and every one of its current products have been awarded medals at the International Wine & Spirit Competition.

All experiences are available to book at gorillaspirits.co.uk/experiences.
