Gin School Experience

The ultimate experience for gin lovers!

The doors to Gin Jamboree's Gin School are open!

During this 3-4 hour experience, you will not only sample many different types of gin, but also create your very own bottle using the botanicals and distilling techniques you learn on the day.

This hands-on experience includes expert tuition by our gin tutors, who will teach you how different botanicals are used to extract flavours and how the right tonic, mixer or garnish can be paired to create the perfect G&T.

Then, under the watchful eye of Gin Jamboree's master distiller, you will select your botanicals and distill your very own gin in a miniature copper pot still.

Finally, you will bottle and label your gin ready to take home with you.

Attendance at the Gin School is £120 per person or £135 for a couple sharing a still and making a bottle between them.

The Gin School includes unlimited drinks (including tea, coffee and soft drinks) throughout the experience and lunch or supper prepared by 2Chefs Catering.

Gin Schools make a perfect gift and can be purchased as a voucher presented in a beautiful gift box.

Gin School Masterclass

In this 90-minute learning experience, you will taste all the major styles of gin and learn the importance of tonic water and other mixers, while also touching on how to select the right garnish for each style of gin.

During the light-hearted session you will also learn how gin is made and how it came to be so popular.

The Masterclass Experience is ideal for groups of between 8 and 30 guests and works well for a get together of friends, work colleagues or extended families and can be run in conjunction with a meeting, seminar or just as a social event.

Our 2Chefs Catering team can also add catering to your event with everything from street food to fine dining. Please enquire. Open nights are also offered throughout the year where you can join with other gin enthusiasts to experience a Masterclass.
