Add Chew Valley Distillery to your Itinerary

Gin and tonic


Located on the borders of Bristol and Bath (in the village of Bitton), Chew Valley Distillery has opened its doors to the public to display the process of their multi award winning spirit production.

Alongside tours and tasting sessions, they are now welcoming the general public to the new tap room and bottle shop where you can sit by the stills and enjoy the fantastic range served by Founder and Distiller Joe Kelly.

Not a gin fan? No worries, the distillery is proud to support other local independent producers and also offer craft beer, local cider and everything in-between to drink on site or to take away from the bottle shop.

The distillery is ideally located on direct bus routes from Bristol and Bath, just a 25 minute walk from Keynsham train station and a stone's throw from the Bristol - Bath Cycle path (exit at The Avon Valley Railway Station).

So why not pop in for a drink, pick up a bottle or book a tasting evening with your friends and family.

The tap room bar is located in the heart of the distillery, with copper stills on show.

The distillery is powered using renewable energy. All food waste is recycled into energy.


Accessible parking on premises and level access throughout. Accessible toilets are also onsite, and assistance dogs are permitted.
