The Gin Lab at the Twelve Apostles

The Gin Lab at the Twelve Apostles

The superb sea-facing resort and spa now offers a gin tasting experience.

Juniper-berry lovers in the Mother City, hear this! Our favourite seaside sanctuary has added a Gin Lab to its impressive list of offerings (which already includes a serene spa, a 16-seat cinema, two swimming pools and two fabulous restaurants).

Open daily from 11am until 9pm, The Gin Lab @ The Conservatory is the place to go for a series of gintastic tastings and experiences, where you’ll get to sample an assortment of 12 international and 15 local gins.

When the clock strikes gin…

… you have three gintastic options:

  1. The Gin & Bare It Experience happens daily, and includes three local gins paired with three diverse tonic waters.
    Time: Daily, 11am onwards
    Cost: R250
  2. The more lavish Gin-Making Experience includes a welcome G&T on arrival, after which the hotel’s resident mixologist will take guests through the paces of creating your very own bottle of gin from start to finish! And while you’re infusing various botanicals into your spirit, canapés will be served – butler-style – for you to enjoy. There’ll even be guest appearances from several local gin producers.
    Time: Friday, 5pm
    Cost: R495
  3. The Gin & Canapé Tasting includes three delectable canapés from Chef Nicholas Goldschmidt, beautifully paired with your G&Ts.
    Time: Daily, 11am – 9pm (The tasting is by reservation only so please book at least 24 hours in advance)
    Cost: 395

You don’t have to Gin and Bare it

Not a fan of gin? No problem. The Twelve Apostles also offers popular craft beer and canapé tastings as well as a delectable high tea by the sea option. So, while your best buds are getting their gin on, you can sit back, and enjoy the view.
