Gin Tasting 101 (SOUTHAMPTON)
Lubrication to your education is provided by our resident gin instructor, Kevin White, at the Dolphin Hotel, which will be turned into a 'gin palace' for 2 hours of pure tasting pleasure. Be guided through the fascinating history of gin and learn why we love it so much!
Of all alcoholic drinks, gin has the most dramatic and colourful history and when it comes to using the excuse 'for medicinal purposes only' then that really applies to gin because it was invented by a doctor to treat stomach ailments! Kevin will give you some nifty tasting tricks and teach you how to make some top-class cocktails at home. During the session, you’ll taste 5 premium gins, as the aim here is for you to sample the entire style spectrum gin has to offer in terms of style.
Kevin is not only our resident gin expert, he is also a great story-teller who will keep you entertained throughout. Kevin’s approach has always been that you have fun, and leave having learned quite a bit without noticing that you were being taught. This tasting is about how gin is made and its story through the ages.
This course is perfect for existing gin lovers or for those who want to learn more about this versatile spirit, in a relaxed environment. This evening makes a great present and can be bought as a Gift Voucher for just £35.
