It’s no secret that artisanal gin has taken the Cape Town bar scene by storm, and now you can learn to make your own in this short course presented by the juniper-berry lovers at New Harbour Distillery in Woodstock – a company of creative (and scientific) individuals who manufacture high-quality artisanal spirits.
In the three-hour cram session lead by master distiller Nic Janeke, you’ll broaden your knowledge of the history and different types of gin, from Old Tom to London Dry. You’ll also get clued up on all the different manufacturing techniques and how various botanicals affect the flavour.
And the most exciting part is that you’ll get to make your own version of the quintessential British tipple – from scratch – using single-botanical distillation blends.
The course includes:
- course material
- a booklet with recipes
- a bottle of gin, made by you
But that’s not all. The lucky winner and their plus one will also receive a curated gin hamper featuring some local favourites, including the new special-edition bottle of Bossiestroop, which launched in December 2018!
