Make Your Own Gin At Inverroche Distillery Gin School

Whether you want to discover the secrets of craft-distilling or just an absolute devoted gin fan, get some ginspiration this festive season at Inverroche Distillery’s Gin School.

Stoke your curiosity by joining the small-group, interactive classes and learn all about the art of alchemy. Look the part with your own distillers cap as you take a journey which is part science, part personal creativity as you select and weigh your own combination of botanicals with which to infuse your gin. It’s your hand-crafted gin, so make it according to your palate or take some guidance from your Inverroche host.

Inverroche Distillery's Gin School

 

Once you’ve fired-up your small copper pot still, you will record, taste, observe and measure the spirit as the concentrated vapours start to flow from the condenser into your spirit glass. Put all your senses to the test to differentiate between the heads, hearts and tails.

When the last drop has emerged from your mini-still you will measure your distilled spirit using a hydrometer, break down your gin with purified water, personally bottle the liquid, name your gin and write your own limited edition label.

You will leave with your bottle of gin, distillers cap, two bottles of tonic, a G&T glass, gin booklet and your own recipe card. But the most precious gift you take home is your new found knowledge and appreciation for small-batch, hand-crafted gin.
