Gin School - Gin Experience Day

gin school gin experience day distilling gin bakewell

Gin School is a full day Gin Distilling Experience giving you a feel of what it’s like to distill your own small batch gin to your own unique recipe.

What is Gin?

During the day you will get to understand the history of gin and the part the UK played in developing this world conquering spirit style. We look at the legal definition of gin and what characterises this incredibly popular classic drink.

You then go on to look at the botanicals that are used to flavour this spirit and with this knowledge, you will then develop with your own unique craft gin recipe.

Pairing Gin With Food

In Gin School we briefly explore some of the food pairing and matching tips for gin before we go for our own gourmet lunch at a local restaurant.

Distill An Artisan Gin

After lunch the main act is getting back to Gin School to distill your own uniquely crafted artisan gin using our traditionally crafted portuguese copper pot stills.  Whilst the distilling is underway we conduct our own tutored gin tasting session with some of the best Peak District distilled gins showcasing the best of local ingredients.  

Once the distilling is finished we will then get you to select your bottle style and label and you can package your own single batch craft gin to take home and give to friends or family or simply enjoy later at your leisure.

If you are looking at experiencing what it is like distilling gin on a commercial gin still why not join us on our one day distilling with a distiller day.
