Move over craft beer. Artisanal gin is the new kid on the block. Learn how to make your own in this short course presented by the juniper-berry lovers at New Harbour Distillery in Woodstock, a company of creative 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 also get to make your own version of the quintessential British tipple – from scratch – using single-botanical distillation blends. Certificates will be given to those who complete the course.
The course includes:
• course material
• a booklet with recipes
• a bottle of gin, made by you
Booking is essential and classes are limited to eight participants. Larger groups can be accommodated on request.
Good to know New Harbour Distillery offers tastings from Wednesday to Saturday, by appointment only.
