Due to the announcement of the new national lockdown, all tours, experiences and Bishop's Bar, will be temporarily closed but they are very much looking forward to welcoming visitors back. Bottles of gin and gin experience gift cards can still be bought from their online shop. 


The Maidstone Distillery is a lovingly restored distillery, in the heart of the town. Set in a beautiful building where the local community can learn about their rich legacy. Founders, Samantha and Darren wanted a place where people can see their spirits being made first hand, and experience the art of distilling in a fun and exciting way.

The distillery work with a leading Master Distiller who uses botanicals from the local area and reclaimed recipes from the past to create remarkable products which are distinct and unforgettable.

Pop into the distillery to enjoy a delgicious gin and tonic at the Bishop's Bar, or visit their online shop to purchase bottles of gin or an unforgettable gin tour experience!
