Upon arrival you will be greeted by your ‘teacher’ for the day. After a quick meet and greet you will ready your taste buds with our gin tasting session where you will learn about our range of award winning gins and the flavour profiles you want to achieve in your finished bottle!
Next we will go on a botanical journey through flavours and what profiles your are each give in distillation. With an array of exotic, dried, locally sourced and freshly harvested botanicals from right here on our farm, you may surprise yourself in your choices…
We will next learn how our stills Ivy & Kin work their magic and we may even let you in to a few secrets…
This will give you the knowledge to then move over to the work shop bar and be the master of your very own still. Weighing out your chosen botanicals and immersing yourself in the aromas as your chosen blends start to steep.
A quick Lancashire break whilst the botanicals really get to know each other and flavours start to marry. In this time you will enjoy a fresh local cheese grazing board and create your own label design & write your own ‘gin story’, an important part of all new recipe development.
Then the part you’ve been awaiting! Distillation time, be in full control as your signature recipe unfolds, crucial taste testing at each stage is a must!
You will then cut and bottle your Gin down to your desired strength and label your new perfect tipple ready to be placed at the top of your home gin shelf!
Don’t just take our word for it!
