Plymouth Gin Distillery

This is a fantastic tour of the Plymouth Gin Distillery here at Black Friars. It is indisputably the oldest working gin distillery with records of a 'mault-house' on the premises going back to 1697. However, it was in 1793 when a Mr Coates joined the distilling business of Fox & Williamson, that the distilling of Plymouth Gin began. Soon the business was to become known as Coates & Co, and remained so until March 2004. The Pilgrim Fathers spent their last night in England here in Plymouth in 1620, before they set sail on the Mayflower to start a new life in America. When they settled, they founded New Plymouth / Plymouth Colony, and the Mayflower ship forms Plymouth Gin's trademark label today.
