Gin School & Distilling Academy
An all-inclusive experience including a historical adventure, botanical exploration, special gin tastings, a charcuterie board & drinks throughout. All ending with your own bottle of spirit, crafted and distilled by you!
On arrival, you’ll be greeted with a welcome drink then learn about Stillgarden, the local history, the botanicals and the distillation process, followed by a visit to our community garden. Along the way, you’ll get to sample a variety of our tasty spirits. Later on, make and name your own bottle of spirit (gin, vodka, even a sambuca style if that’s your tipple) using our wall of 120 botanicals. While it’s distilling, there’ll be a hands-on cocktail masterclass in our Speakeasy, Lab8.
