Become a Distiller and create your very own Scottish Gin in this 3 hour experience! Starting with a double G&T welcome drink you'll uncover Aberdeen's rich distilling heritage and the origins of gin before going on to tour the restricted production areas to find out how Aberdeen Gins are made. Learn about the base gin botanicals and the premium organic alcohol. Following on from a short introduction to the botanicals available, choose from over 100 botanicals and distil your perfect bottle of gin using a beautiful copper alembic mini-still.

The group is led by the Head Distiller who is on hand to help you select the ideal botanicals and quantities for your unique gin recipe.

While you wait for your gin to distil, enjoy samples from the range of Aberdeen Gins. You'll be introduced to the background of each gin as well as the ingredients used - find out how each gin is unique and how they are authentically distilled in Aberdeen. Sip a G&T made to order based on your preferred sample.

Finally, decide the strength, bottle, cap and label your own full sized 70cl bottle of gin - you’ll need a name for it too!

Celebrate becoming a distiller with a surprise cocktail.
