Adnams Brewery Tours

Adnams Brewery Southwold SuffolkAdnams Brewery & Distillery ToursAdnams Distillery Tours Gin Making

Fancy doing something a little bit different? Take a tour of the Adnams Sole Bay Brewery and Copper House Distillery in the heart of Southwold where Adnams have been brewing since 1872.

Behind the walls of a stunning Victorian building on East Green lies one of the most modern breweries in the UK.  In 2010, Adnams added a micro distillery too.


Your tour of the Adnams brewery will explain the beer making process from start to finish. You’ll explore the choice of ingredients and how Adnams make their beer using super-modern, self-cleaning brew stream, through to tasting the final delicious product.


The Copper House Distillery sits within the brewery and uses many of the same local ingredients. From the top of the building, you can see some of the best views in Southwold, looking across the rooftops to the Lighthouse, the North Sea and beyond. Discover how Adnams create their range of award-winning spirits from the start of the process in our super-efficient brewery through to distilling and, of course, sampling the finished product.

Both tours take approximately 1 hour and are followed by a tutored tasting, which takes around 30 minutes. The tours cost £20 per person.

You will also receive 10% off  purchases in the Adnams Southwold store when you spend £20 or more. The tours are only available to over 18s and booking is essential as spaces are limited.  Group and private tours are available.
