Get creative and distil your own gin with tastings and cocktails for two at Hotham’s Gin School and Distillery in Hull. You and a fellow gin enthusiast can enjoy this award-winning experience, where you’ll receive expert help from the Head Distiller, a masterclass, and plenty of delicious gin to boot.
Kick off with a Hotham’s G&T before embarking on a spirited discovery of the fabled drink. Visit the botanicals bench and choose your favourites to put in your own creation, before building your recipe with the help of the distiller. You’ll hear about the distillation process whilst enjoying a gin-based cocktail, and taste your gin as it distils, seeing how the botanicals release their flavours. Learn about the history of gin, about the Hotham’s brand, and how to taste gin (properly). Finally, you’ll cut, bottle, name and label your creation, before heading home with your 70cl bottle.
What happens on the day?
The two of you will kick things off with a Hotham’s gin and tonic, before joining the rest of the group to check out the botanicals bench. You’ll smell and taste amazing botanicals, and choose the ones you like best for your own gin. The distiller will advise you on the quantities required, and you’ll soon have a balanced recipe ready.
Once you’ve decided on your recipe, you’ll add your botanicals to your still, where a litre of spirit awaits. You’ll learn about the distillation process while enjoying a gin-based cocktail each. You’ll be encouraged to taste your gin as it distils and your botanicals release their flavours, and be shown how to measure the strength of your gin.
Learn about the history of gin as you enjoy another G&T, before learning how to taste gin ‘properly’ and trying some Hotham’s Original Gin and Hotham’s Cardamom Gin. Finally, you’ll cut, bottle, name and label your unique creation. Your recipe will be kept on file, so you can order a bottle of your own gin whenever you want, to be delivered straight to your door.
