Nelson's Gin School
1 day Gin School
£95.00 Including Delivery
Nelson's Gin School* is a learning, teaching and tasting academy for connoisseurs of gin, or those who simply wish to know more.
Each one day Gin School Experience plays host to a maximum of six students who spend a day learning about the creation of superlative gin and at the same time, using personal taste and preferences to create their own unique, signature spirit.
At the end of the day, guests leave with their own 70cl bottle of gin, made with botanicals of their choice, taken from our large and inspiring selection or if preferred, brought from home.
*The Gin School Experience Day runs on Thursdays & Saturdays (subject to availability on booking) starting at 10.00 a.m. with coffee.
Following an introduction to Nelson's Gin, students relax with a G&T, they begin to learn about the process of making gin and are invited to ask questions.
Armed with insight, students begin to select the botanicals for use in their own unique gin.
At 12.00 p.m., the process of distilling begins. Each student has their own mini-still in which to work.
At 1.30 p.m., there is a break for a leisurely lunch and at approximately 2.30 p.m. a tour around our main still (called 'Victory').
By 3.00 p.m, students begin to bottle and label their own gin and may, if wished, buy a bottle of Nelson's Gin for comparison.
The day draws to a natural close.
A record of each student's individual botanical blend is carefully filed for future reference, Should you wish to order further bottles of your own unique gin, for personal consumption or to give as gifts, your gin is just a phone call or email away.
