Full description

Immerse yourself in the world of herbs and gin on this guided tour and tasting experience at Edinberg’s The Secret Herb Garden and The Secret Garden Distillery. Explore the garden, on-site drying room, and glasshouse before trying 6 100% natural gins. 

Start your tour in the garden, a 7.5-acre area where you will find over 600 herb and floral varieties available to see and purchase. Witness all the botanicals that are lovingly cultivated with no chemicals whatsoever.

Learn all about the botanicals that go into The Secret Garden gins alongside your guide. Talk through the importance of the botanicals and how they are hand-harvested and dried at natural temperatures to maintain their medicinal properties. 

With over a thousand juniper bushes, complemented by over 600 herbs and floral varieties such as scented lemon verbena, geraniums, irises, and roses, the gin garden is the ultimate tribute to nature’s magic. 

Curated by The Secret Garden’s founder, renowned Scottish herbologist Hamish Martin, the garden encapsulates his boundless passion and knowledge.

After the garden, the tour continues to the on-site drying room and glasshouse before ending in the Gin Lounge, where you’ll get to taste 4 core gins and 2 mystery gins.
