Tue. 2 May 2017, 6:30 pm – 8:00 pm AEST
Like to make some gin, just for you? The Canberra Distillery founder & master distiller Tim Reardon will show you how.
Making gin is equal parts science and art. Making good gin combines the science of producing a tight-cut neutral spirit for a smooth palate with balancing botanical infusion.
At this masterclass, Gin Artist Tim Reardon will provide each table of 6 with a 'canvas' (350ml bottle of neutral spirit) and a 'palette' (selection of botanicals including juniper and others) and 'brushes' (gin makin' tools), then guide you through the process of tailoring the flavour to suit your preferences.
The you get to taste your artwork!
EARLY BIRD Tix $20 (+ bf until Thurs 30 March 2am) / Standard Tix $25 - masterclass includes 1 x 350ml bottle of neutral spirits (per table of 6), selection of botanicals, nibbles & masterclass on gin making with The Canberra Distillery founder & master distiller Tim Reardon.
