Gin Tasting in Bristol

Calling all Gin lovers!

Learn more about this fantastic spirit with a fascinating gin and tonic tasting. You'll discover how gin is made and some of its long and colourful history in a fun and deliciously hands-on way. 

From traditional Dutch Genever to classic London Dry and more unconventional modern styles, we'll taste a diverse range of Gins and sample a selection of different tonics in a relaxed and social environment. We'll discuss the different botanicals and production methods used as we go, and we'll always include one or two delicious locally distilled gins.

An experienced and friendly host will be on hand to present each gin and answer any questions as we go, and cucumber sandwiches will be provided to nibble on (to keep in the spirit of things!).

Please note: Early booking is strongly advised as this event is always very popular!
