About
Join us for our most hands-on, in-depth gin experience at Crossbill Distillery in the legendary Barras in Glasgow’s East End. You will learn about gin and its history, before being taken on a tutored tasting of our Crossbill range. Our distiller will then help you select your own botanicals and distil these in a copper pot still. Finally, you bottle, label, and wax seal your unique creation to take away and enjoy. If you are interested in a date that is currently unavailable on our website, please get in touch with us.

Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

An excellent afternoon in the company of the very funny and informative Dave, and his lovely assistant who fed us so much gin I've now forgotten her name.. (sorry 😬)

Highly recommend coming to the Gin School here! It's a fantastic 3 hour experience where you get to learn more about gin and the distillation process before choosing your own botanicals and concocting your own gin to take home. One of our favourite parts about our trip to Glasgow!

What a brilliant afternoon we had. The three-hour gin making class was superb. Drinking various crossbill gins, listening to a history of gin in the UK from the entertaining Disco Dave and the chance to make your own gin. Would highly recommend it

A fantastic day out, learning about the history and making of gin, tasting various Crossbill wares and ultimately distilling our very own recipe gin, taken away in a very professional looking bottle.
Thoroughly entertaining and huge thanks to Andrew and the team for a very special experience!
