Hensol Castle Distillery is beginning to take shape in the basement of Hensol Castle.

We are excited at the progress that is being made and we wanted to share some snapshots from the last few months of construction with you.

The visitor centre walls are now up and it’s starting to take shape, we’re especially pleased with the curved feature wall. Next we will begin fitting the sprinkler system, ventilation and continue with the electrical and mechanical work.

Your tour of Hensol Castle Distillery will begin here in the visitor centre and then you will make your way down the walkway to the production area for the next part of the tour.

The production area is proceeding well with most of the ventilation system completed and Altro white walls have been extensively used in this area to go above and beyond all the necessary hygiene requirements.

The first of the gin school rooms are nearing completion with the walls, windows, ventilation and sprinklers all completed. We are now working on the ceiling, electrics and air conditioning. This room is our favourite because this is where the fun stuff will happen and you will be able to distil your own bottle of bespoke gin.
