Virtual Gin Distilling Class
Due to recent events around the world we are now offering a virtual 'Distill your own bottle of gin class' online to participants living in the UK for now only. 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, albeit from the comfort of their own homes. It is open to a maximum of 2 people at any one time and they must be from the same household. Due to UK distilling laws, all distilling will take place at Sip Antics micro distillery, but guests will be able to view their gin being made through a live video feed. All drinks to be consumed during the online experience will be posted out to participants home address a few days prior to enjoy throughout the class experience and their gin bottle recipe creation will then be posted out a few days later after the class ends.
A virtual gin distilling class will run as follows, guests are given a unique link before class starts by email to click on when the class is to start at a pre agreed time and date. Guests are 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 smelling a few popular botanicals provided in your delivered box. Then once you deicide on a recipe from the list of botanicals, using one of our mini copper stills your host will guide you through the whole process to create your own gin bottle recipe. While your mini still is distilling your chosen botanicals, which lasts around 20 mins, you will get to shake and enjoy a gin cocktail while you wait for the distilling process to end. You will then think of a name to call your bottle of gin while your host bottles, labels, and wax seals your bottle to post home to you.
