Description

Like to make some gin, just for you? The Canberra Distillery founder & 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' (neutral spirit alcohol) 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.

"Best Gin-in-Show" prize awarded to the most delicious beverage with the a name and back story to remember.

Masterclass includes base neutral spirits alcohol, selection of botanicals, nibbles, tasters of other CBR Distillery products & masterclass on gin making with The Canberra Distillery founder & master distiller Tim Reardon
