In this unique and hands on session, you will have the opportunity to blend two of your own gins which are yours to take away in 200ml flasks. A gin & tonic on arrival will start the evening before our Production Manager Dave guides you through our distillery and the gin making process. Instruction will be provided on how to construct a high quality spirit as well as a little history on gin itself.
This is a rare opportunity limited to 24 gin lovers to create their very own gin according to their taste!
This session will be led by Harriet Leigh, a renowned spirits and cocktail authority who has led countless tastings, spirits trainings, and large-scale events. With a passion for flavour and the spirits industry, Harriet is the ideal guide to walk you through what you are tasting and deliver an entertaining evening.
On occasion, our Founder, Will Edwards, Head Distiller, Joe Dinsmoor, and Assistant Distiller, may pop their head in to lend a hand or simply to taste some of your special gins!
An excellent class that was informative, fun and run by a knowledgeable teacher. Thoroughly enjoyable evening where you will learn how to make (or not!) a good gin. Would highly recommend to all gin lovers or those seeking to simply learn how to love this spirit more.
The class was very fun and the staff were very knowledgable.
My husband and I did this together. It was an excellent night out, starting with a drink in the bar, followed by a professional and well set up gin blending session, ending in a tour of the distilling plant. We found the staff incredibly knowlegable and eager to help out and give advice. Even though we found it difficult to get a nicely blended and scented gin, we went home happy and satisfied with what we produced. A recommended class.
