We'll be celebrating all things juniper with gin mixologist demonstrations and sampling, live music and a BBQ throughout the day.

Gin Experiences are ticketed at £30 per person. Over 18s only. In this 90 minute experience you'll go behind the scenes to see how and where our gin is distilled in our handmade unique copper pot still. We'll take you through the history of gin and how the classic gin styles have developed, including how our own Lakes Gin is made of a delicate balance of botanicals. You'll take home some ideas for serving suggestions with our gin liqueurs and of course, sample each of our expressions, both neat and with their recommended mixer in a tutored tasting session.
