Brilliant day out!!
Learnt lots from a very knowledgeable host (gary), and had a laugh doing it.
Close to the centre of town, this gin making experience ticks all the boxes. Not only do you get to make your own bottle of gin to takeaway,...More
We had a fabulous evening learning to make gin on Sunday. We began with a g and t as we heard about the history and the current explosion of specialist gin. We then tried an example of each of the four main flavour groups to...More
One of the best experiences in all of my trips to Edinburgh. My main interest is in single malt whiskies, but to get a hands-on experience of distillation was very exciting and great fun to! Gary was a great host, gave a lot information and...More
What a wonderful way to celebrate a birthday. We learned so much about gin, how it’s made, and how to serve it from the lovely host. It was just the two of us and the host, which made for a great experience with plenty of...More
This visit was a gift from my hubby and as a gin lover I have to say what a fantastic experience. On arrival you are presented with one of the hosts own gin creations to sip away while he chats away to get a feel...More
Probably the best way to spend a few hours in Edinburgh. You arrive as someone who has never created their own gin. Get to try a spiced, floral and herb based gin. Drink other gins and leave as the proud owner of your very own...More
I have to admit I was a Gin novice being more of a vodka or wine drinker - but my friend wanted to do this class for her birthday and asked me to do it with her. Turns out I do like Gin!!
Very personal gin class and micro distilling experience led by Gary, who is charming and well informed. This class is held in a private room on the basement level of the Cumberland Bar, an easy 20 minute walk from the old town. Each participant works...More

Thanks Adrienne for the kind words, it was a pleasure to welcome you both to the gin school and glad you both enjoyed yourselves. Hope the rest of your trip went well. Thanks
This is a must do for anyone who loves their gin! Learning the process and putting ingredients together is incredible but is topped by taking home your very own creation!! This is such good value for money and the cocktails along the way help the...More

Hi Nikita... thanks for your interest in my gin school. If you were looking to transfer the gin that you make into carry on plastic bottles, it would need to be 7 x 100ml bottles. What allowance does the airline you are flying with allow for carry on liquids? Cheers Gary
