Shakespeare Distillery

COVID-19: Important Information

Tours need to be pre-booked – please see how to book under Important Information below.

Shakespeare Distillery is an independent artisan spirit producer based in Stratford-upon-Avon. Established in 2015, everything they produce is in small handcrafted batches, ensuring the best tasting spirits around!

At Shakespeare Distillery they are inspired by the Tudor period – the era in which Shakespeare lived. Thanks to Henry VIII’s dissolution of the monasteries, the Tudor period became a time of great discovery, experimentation and innovation within the world of spirit production as people soon discovered that it could be a very nice recreational drink too – not just a medicine! They aim to recapture this period of innovation by fusing traditional and, in some cases, forgotten ingredients with modern techniques to create exciting new spirits.

The Explorer Pass includes a tour of the distillery.
