Exploring the Styles of Gin

Having learnt the differences between abrasion, attrition, hydraulic action, and solution erosion, with this week’s home tuition it is now time to learn about the differences between classic, compound, contemporary, London Dry and Old Tom Gins.

Treat yourself to some pleasure as we tickle your taste buds and whisky you away into the world of gin and its various styles. The session will explore how the styles are made whilst trying them through a series of drinks using 5 gins.

We firmly believe that cocktails are better when shared with friends and good conversation.
