Plymouth Gin is the oldest working gin distillery in England, using the same recipe since 1793.
The Black Friar’s building dates back to the early 1400s. The most intact part of the distillery is the Refectory Room, a medieval hall with a fine hull-shaped timber roof built in 1431. It’s one of the oldest buildings in Plymouth, and protected as a precious national monument. Not least because it’s now also an important centre of excellence for gin cocktail making.
Now as it’s the time of year to pull up a chair in the spring sunshine and enjoy a G&T, you can’t do much better than taking a seat on a Plymouth Gin deckchair! Made by Sails and Canvas from recycled sailcloth and marine canvas with an eye catching 1793 in orange insignia and their distinctive sailboat logo, the deckchair encapsulates all that is nautical…bang on brand for Plymouth Gin.
So pour a gin, take a seat and enjoy!
