Have you ever wondered what Juniper tastes like? Would you like to become an expert gin taster?

Starting with a double G&T and led by the Head Distiller, the Gin Tasting Masterclass opens up a world of flavour as you experience flavours through a range of single distillates.

Each botanical found in a traditional London Dry Gin has been individually distilled so you may train your palate to recognise the distinct flavours the come together to make gin.

Next, become a mixologist and blend these distillates together to create your own glass of gin.

Put your new found skills to the test with a challenge – a mystery botanical as a single distillate – can you guess what botanical has been distilled based on flavour?

Enjoy samples from the range of Aberdeen Gins – served directly from beautiful French glass demi-johns – both London Dry and Fruit Gins.

Finally, choose your preferred gin from the range and sip a final G&T as the event concludes with a Q&A session – the perfect time to ask all those gin related questions, such as… Why is gin so popular? How long can I keep my gin? What should I look for when purchasing gin? When is a fruit gin not a gin? Is London Dry Gin all from London? Can I make my own gin at home?
