The three hour session will captivate any intellectual (and thirsty) fellow, as master distiller and entertaining raconteur Jake F.Burger and his expert team of 'Gin Instructors' take you on a historic whistle stop journey, revising the miserable gin era of London in the 1700’s made famous by Hogarth’s iconic ‘Gin Lane’ tableau, through 300 years of heritage belonging to Britain’s national spirit.
The intimate and interactive experience culminates in making your own gin as, lubricated by gin cocktails, you move on to one of The Blending Rooms in The Distillery to learn about the gin making process, the botanicals used to flavour gin and with the help of The Ginstitute’s gin gurus, create your very own bespoke blend to take away in a personally signed 700ml bottle.
You are now a member of the esteemed Ginstitute Alumni and we will keep your unique recipe on file at The Ginstitute allowing you to re-order your gin and continue to enjoy it at home.
