The Plymouth Gin distillery (known as the Black Friars Distillery) is now the only gin distillery remaining in the town of Plymouth, England in what was once a Dominican Order monastery built in 1431. Before being a gin distillery, the building’s history was both rich and chequered. One of the oldest structures in Plymouth full stop, the building was briefly turned into a debtor’s prison after its time as a monastery. The established distilling business of Fox & Williamson began production of Plymouth Gin in 1793, although records show distilling had been going on at the site since the 1690’s onwards. Plymouth Distillery now has the accolade of being the oldest British distillery still active today in its original location
