Gin Tasting Masterclass

This unique sampling experience is operated in conjunction with the fascinating Bath Botanical Gin Distillery & Herbal Apothecary. This special producer makes gins in small-batches, based on unique in-house recipes

The distillery can be found in the stunning village suburb of Widcombe, just 5 minutes walk from Bath Spa station. Our masterclass begins by welcoming you with a classic gin and tonic. You’ll also see the traditional copper still which is used to produce many of the handcrafted drinks you’ll get to taste. We’ll describe how the still works, the intriguing history of gin, and why the drinks you’ll sample are so special. Samples are included of a range of fruit flavoured gins, unusual herbal elixirs, and bitters, all made on site.

This is a fun event, in a stunning location, for those looking for a unique gin tasting experience. With just 1 to 1 hr 15 minss duration, it is an easy way to add an immersive experience to your visit to Bath, and a great way to connect with a unique, independent business.
