Treat someone to a unique experience

Join us for a Gin Tasting at The Botanical Bar. Our experts will take you on a journey through the history and heritage of Gin, explaining in detail how Gin is made, and specifically how our Folium Gin is created. We talk through how different botanicals are used to create the flavours you find in different Gin’s and how you can use garnishes to adapt the flavour of Gin to your tastes. We set you up 3 servings of Folium Gin with a series of different tonics, mixers and an array of garnishes and work with you to create your own unique set of G&T mixes.
We guide you through the background and concepts of mixology & cocktail making, and help you to learn fundamental techniques. Every guest will make (and drink) three cocktails that they make with their own individual cocktail making kit and the use of our fully stocked bar. You also get to indulge some healthy competition as you compete against the other members of your group to either make your own original cocktail or the perfect Martini using our Folium Gin and a range of liquors, spirits, syrups, fresh fruit, juices.
At our riverside Gin School, our expert team will guide you through the distillation process. You will take charge of a mini copper still to create two 35cl bottles of Gin. Choose from our range of Botanicals to create your own unique flavour. Once complete we give you your personalised bottles to take away with you, but not before you have sampled your new creation using a combination of tonics and garnishes while relaxing in our Botanical Bar.
