It’s finally the beginning of 2020, and as much as we here at Exmoor Distillery believe in a ‘new year, new you’ mentality, we also believe in the power of positive reflection too. We want to take the time to appreciate, and be thankful for, all of the wonderful milestones that we’ve reached during 2019.

But we couldn’t be where we are today without you, our amazing customers and locals, trying tipples of our gin and joining us in the distillery.

So we’d like to take the opportunity to thank you, and to share some of our favourite reviews and creations during 2019.

What Have You Been Saying About Our Northmoor Gin?

We’ve had some great responses to our Northmoor Classic Gin this year, and they’ve all praised our unique taste! So take a look at just a few of our favourite ones!

This Trustpilot review made our hearts melt. Helping someone to find the perfect gin for every occasion is exactly the mission that we want to fulfil!

“Lovely botanical gin, we’ve been getting this for well over a year now & it’s lovely.” – Alan, Trustpilot

We absolutely love it when people leave Northmoor Gin reviews on Facebook, and this one really did bring a smile to our faces here at Exmoor Distillery!

“I’ve tried a lot of gins over the last few years and I can say honestly this is a very special one. Smooth and a very distinctive flavour, makes for a very enjoyable drink.” – Harry, Facebook

This happy customer has found the perfect pairing for his Northmoor – some Fever-Tree Tonic. And we most certainly agree!

“3 bottles almost gone since last November. Just had a delivery of another 3. The best gin that we have ever had the botanicals are great. Trouble is one glass is never enough especially with Fever-Tree tonic. Have a great set up as we have visited the premises & made to feel very welcome. Keep up the good work.” – Alan, Google Reviews

How Are You Feeling About Our Northmoor Navy Strength?

Our Northmoor Navy Strength Gin is a delightful spin on our Classic Northmoor Gin. It has the same woody taste paired with a higher alcohol content of 57% ABV (that’ll blow your socks off!) And boy were we over the moon with the response that this new addition to our range has gathered!

Out of 150 different gins, this Exmoor Distillery fan rates our Northmoor Navy Strength as one of her favourites! It’s an honour…

“Really friendly couple. great gin especially the Navy strength – very smooth. added to our collection of about 150 and it’s right up there!” – Les, Facebook

This brave Navy Strength fan is going to take her gin tasting experience to the next level after meeting our head distiller, John…

“My favourite I have to say is the Navy Strength, and will be trying it with just some ice as recommended by the maker of this really nice gin.” – Dawn, Facebook

This passer-by loved both gins so much that she ended up leaving with a bottle of each! Now doesn’t that sound like a day well spent?

“Just happened to be passing this artisan distillery today and, having already been recommended to try this gin, couldn’t resist the urge to pop in. Made very welcome by John and offered samples, despite it being 4:55! A well crafted, smooth gin and the Navy Strength definitely ‘hit the spot’. Didn’t hesitate, brought a bottle of both. Looking forward to enjoying them back home in East Sussex. Good luck guys keep distilling great gin!” – Jan, Google Reviews

What Have You Been Saying About Our Exmoor Distillery Tours?

One of the things that set Exmoor Distillery apart from others is our curated, personal distillery tours. There are so many pubs to explore in Exmoor, but visiting our distillery for a few free samples should be at the top of your list. Just take a look at these wonderful reviews!

This lovely review comes from someone that simply stumbled across our distillery while out on a walk, and what a wonderful find it was!

“We were walking past and popped in to the distillery – lovely owners who told us all about the gins and we got to try some! Ended up buying a bottle and looking for it at every pub during our stay in Exmoor – it’s delicious, smooth and we’ll be ordering more soon 👍🏻” – Nicola, Facebook

This lucky gin lover got to sample both our gins. Take a look at what she thought of them:

“I am a big lover of gin and decided to pop in, definitely do not regret it! John was very friendly and talked through the process of making the gin and even allowed us to sample them – they are honestly the best I have ever tried. Walked away with a bottle of each…” – Annabel, Facebook

And You didn’t Stop There…

Similarly, this happy customer got to learn about how the gin that she loves so much is made!

“Had a visit to the distillery, lovely experience.. got to try the two gins and learn the process! Made to feel very welcome, wouldn’t hesitate to recommend!” – Nicola, Facebook

One of our local gin-lovers popped in for a bottle and left with a working knowledge of how to distil gin. What a treat!

“Dropped in on the Exmoor Distillery today to purchase some local gin. Was pleasantly surprised to get a taste of the produce and an understanding of what goes into Exmoor Gin to give it its unique taste.” – Dawn, Facebook

It’s lucky that these two spotted our distillery on their way past!

“On our way to Dulverton, we luckily stumbled upon this little gem and were warmly welcomed by Nicola and John to some fantastic gin tasting. Their Northmoor Classic Gin is an excellent medley of flavours and we can’t wait to share our newfound favourite with the fam and friends!” – Zambi, Facebook

What Do You Think About Our New Dartington Crystal Gin Copa Glasses?

With the arrival of our new gin came the arrival of our bespoke gin glasses. Plus, if you are going to drink some gin then you might as well do it in style! We were really looking forward to hearing your thoughts on our glasses, and we were not disappointed!

This customer was over the moon to discover that we had some new gin Copa glasses on sale!

“Will be going back before the end of the holiday for a beautiful Dartington glass too, which incorporates their lovely logo. Highly recommend anyone to stop by!” – Annabel, Facebook

What Have You Been Saying About Our Delivery Service?

We work hard throughout the year to ensure that each bottle of gin is packaged, posted and with you in no time at all. It’s important that you get your gin in good time, and that you don’t have to wait too long before that next tipple comes around.
Check out what this happy customer thought of our above-and-beyond customer approach…

“Thank you so much! I bought some Exmoor gin for my Dad for Christmas. Could not have hoped for better service – I accidentally ordered it to be delivered to Dad instead of to my sister’s house. I sent an email, which you responded to immediately and dispatched to my sister’s as requested, arriving very speedily. Best of all, he loves it! I live in Mexico but can’t wait to try it!” – Jude, Trustpilot

This gin-enthusiast was even surprised by our unique new gift boxes!

“Beautifully boxed bottle arrived very quickly. Thank you.” – Julian, Trustpilot

Our Thank You, To You…

Here at Exmoor Distillery, we really do care about creating the very best gin for our customers. But we would be nothing without just that; our customers. Gin-lovers taking the time to write reviews like these brings a smile to all of our faces. We are so proud to have received such huge swathes of support for our artisan gin during 2019, and that’s why we’ve made it our mission to keep creating more gin that you love in 2020.

John and Nicola
