Gin Tasting Masterclass

What is in gin? What do each of the individual botanicals of gin taste like? Ever wondered what botanicals taste like distilled on their own? Deep dive into the world of distilling and try gin distilled in the heart of Aberdeen.

Following a welcome Gin & Tonic, join us on an exploration of individual botanicals though single distillates, training your palate to the flavours that make a classic gin. Use this knowledge in a tutored tasting of three distinctive styles of gin, concluding with a Gin & Tonic of your choice.

What's included?

  • Double Gin and Tonic on arrival
  • Talk on the different types of gin, the processes involved and what makes a gin...a gin
  • Taste a range of single distillates
  • Tutored Gin tasting by the head distiller of three distinctly different gins
  • Samples of our own genuinely small batch gins
  • A Gin & Tonic made from a preferred demi-john (traditional gin / fruit based gin)
  • Shopping at the distillery shop

The Gin Tasting Masterclass caters for up to 20 guests at a time.
