Distill your own bottle of gin
Our 'Distill your own bottle of gin class' is seen as our signature drinks experience here at Sip Antics. This class is seen as the advanced level of both our 'make your own bottle of gin' classes, although you do not need any previous distilling experience to attend. This fun class teaches guests in more depth the age-old concept of distilling on mini copper pot alembic stills to make a bottle of gin.
Each guest is welcomed with a refreshing gin and tonic, with a brief introduction and outline of the session. You will then get to taste various gin profiles to help you decide on your own unique recipe before creating your own 700ml bottle of gin. Using our mini copper stills, your host will guide you through the whole process, choosing from over sixty different botanicals to create your own recipe. While your mini still is distilling your chosen botanicals, which lasts around 30 mins, you will get to enjoy a gin cocktail while you wait for the distilling process to end. You will then bottle, label, name, and wax seal your final product to take home with you.
