If you're a fan of gin, and let's face it, who isn't?, then this is just the experience for you or a fellow connoisseur of all things distilled and herbaceous. With this brilliant Gin School Experience at Nelson's Gin Distillery, you can learn the ins and outs of what it takes to make delicious gin. Kicking things off with coffee and a G T, you'll be taken through some of the processes before choosing the botanicals for a gin of your very own. Hands on, each participant will have their own mini-still in which to work on their own signature spirit. After a short lunch break, there'll be a tour of the distillery's impressive main still, 'Victory.' Then it'll be time to bottle and label your prize concoction. With a large and inspiring selection of botanicals, there's something sure to please every palate, however, you're welcome to bring your own if there's something particularly special you fancy. At the end of the day, you'll take home a 70cl bottle of your personalised concoction. In addition, the distillery keeps a record of each student's individual botanical blend, so if you want to order further bottles of your unique spirit, all you have to do is get in touch!
