Gin School Experience


Become fully submerged in this terrific experience of everything gin.
From tasting, to learning, to making;
it is a jam-packed day.

We like to start the experience in the best way, with a G&T in hand. Once seated, you’ll begin learning how this wonderful spirit came to be the quintessential British classic it is today. Tasting your way through history and the different styles of gin; it’s the best sort of history lesson!

Once the theory is done, its time to put your newly learned skills - to the stills - as you move into the distillery and start to create your very own gin recipe; combining the dry botanicals necessary to bring your vision to life.

While your beautiful infusions are left to macerate, it’s time for a well-deserved lunch or supper and G&T in the School Room, where fellow class mates can share their experiences together.
Gin is a great social lubricant don’t you know!

Once more returning to the Still Room, it’s time for the practical. Our master distiller will be on hand to give tips on what to look out for as the heat is turned up and gin is born! Finally, all that’s left to do is add a label and the crucial taste test. Matching your newly created wonder with which ever garnish and mixer you desire.
If you then wish to stay once the gin school is over, the wonderful 500’s bar will be open along with the distillery shop, if you wish to expand your gin collection further.

To book your place at one of Staffordshire’s best kept secrets, attendance at the Gin School is £120 per person or £149 for a couple sharing a still and making a bottle between them.

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