Blendworks Gin Blending

The Blendworks Gin School experience lifts the curtain on the gin making process, giving you the chance to choose your ingredients, determine flavour profiles and make your very own gin – all under the watchful eye of our expert Blendworks Tutors. Needless to say, a few “tastings” will be had in the process.

To start, your tutor will be your tour guide through the rich, and sometimes dark, history of gin; remedies in ancient Egypt, the first commercial recipes in Holland, the rollercoaster of distilling in London, bootlegging and cocktails in the States, and the craft revolution. You will soon see that gin is no passing fad…

Following that, the science. This will include a brief look at different production methods and a run down of ingredients. All to prepare you for the main event.

Create your own Gin

After smelling and tasting the individual botanicals, you will start to make your very own gin! Everyone will start with the same juniper base but from there, the choice is yours. Use your new botanical knowledge to hand select what ingredients you want in your gin. Do you want subtle and classy? Or strong and proud? By blending different botanicals, in different amounts, you can personalise your gin to your very own taste buds. There is a near endless number of possible combinations.

During the entire process you’ll be able to keep notes on the different ingredients, their individual tasting notes, and your thoughts in your lovely Blendworks notebook – included as part of your overall experience. 

Of course, no gin is complete without a name, and you’ll be able to watch as your brand name is printed on a label and applied to your own bottle. This is then gift packaged with two ‘Blendworks’ glasses for you take home; complete with a certificate to commemorate your gin making experience!
