The area
Address
Neighbourhood: New Town
Suits and shopping bags rule the streets of New Town, until after dark when strappy dresses come out to play. This is the city’s central business district with its smaller offices, clothes boutiques, and many of the city’s flashiest restaurants and ritziest clubs. The architecture along roads like George Street helps give it a swank and formal feel: it’s a planned Georgian development of regal townhouses, geometric squares, and self-important statues. But it’s also a very wanderable neighbourhood, with a healthy bustle at almost any time of day and fine people-watching in places like St Andrew's Square which fills with picnickers around lunch. You’ll also find a series of cheerful basement bistros on Hanover Street, while dark Rose Street has something of the feel of an undiscovered back alley and is chock-full of characterful pubs and small independent shops.

    Distilling our own gin
    Gary is a gin genius. Knows so much and made us feel so welcome. A wonderful learning experience and gin tasting. Our own recipe was distilled, bottled and taken home to enjoy. Just a fabulous afternoon.

    A must for gin lovers
    I have done many gin tastings and tours but this experience tops the lot. Gary is so knowledgeable about his gins and the distillation process. He made it such an interesting and fun experience. He spend a whole afternoon with us and it passed so quickly. He let us make our own recipe for our own gin from his huge array of botanicals, whilst advising us about tastes and qualities. Such good value for money too with a cocktail to start, 3 gins to test your palate, and a glass of your own recipe gin and a bottle to take away. Cannot recommend enough. Thank you

    Wonderful and unique experience!
    My friend and I had a wonderful time distilling our own custom bottle of gin! Gary was an enthusiastic and wonderful teacher and very passionate about the subject! He taught us lots about the distilling process, different types of gin and we learned lots of history. We had a fabulous time and would highly recommend to everyone! It was fantastic value as well! I already have plans to go back with a group of work friends!

    Must do activity, great way to spend an afternoon
    We had an absolute fantastic time at the masterclass. Neil was so helpful and knowledgeable, a wonderful host. We loved the process of selecting our own botanicals and have a lovely bottle of gin to take home. We would highly recommend this.

    Great time guaranteed!
    I’ve had a blast! Received this as a surprise gift from my fiancee and had the best time. Neil is a fountain of interesting facts and a great storyteller. I loved listening to insightful stories about the history of gin while playing around with a multitude of ingredients trying to put everything in our gin. Absolutely loved the much needed guidance and expertise of Neil to edit our recipe and help us make a hopefully drinkable gin matching our preferences. Very stoked to try it in a couple of days!

We just had the best afternoon. I am not a gin drinker but my partner is and i think i enjoyed even more than she did. A personal shoutout, Neil absolutely makes this experience, so knowledgeable, so friendly and such good energy. Neil spent a whole hour after answering questions and chatting to us. This would have been a great experience regardless, but Neil completes it. He is the differentiator and the reason we wouldn’t hesitate to go back and recommend to others. A great way to spend a Saturday.

My wife and I were bought this experience as a gift. It was a great way to spend an afternoon and evening. Neil was brilliantly entertaining, knowledgeable and made it a very personal experience for us. We had so much fun making our own gin with his expert guidance. We would highly recommend it to anyone, whether they love gin or not!

My wife and I had so much fun and a fantastic time. Neil was extremely knowledgeable, one of the friendliest people we've ever met, and a great teacher. He even answered some of my non-gin related questions afterwards. I can't recommend him enough. Everyone should go, even people who aren't sure if they like gin or want to try something new and fun.

Anyone looking for a unique experience I would thoroughly recommend this. We bought it for my mum’s birthday had a great afternoon distilling our own gin. Neil was very knowledgeable and passionate about gin, he made the session interesting and fun. There were loads of botanicals to choose from and with Neil to help and advise on our selection we each made a lovely bottle of gin.

Excellent afternoon with Neil creating our own gin! A very unique experience and Neil is a fountain of knowledge. Kept us engaged throughout and it was very social and laidback. Bought the experience as a birthday gift for my partner and he loved it. I’m not much of a gin drinker but very much appreciated the flavour profiles and the history behind gin, as well as being able to create our own flavoured gin to take home. 10/10 would recommend to anyone :)
