Gin Masterclass Experience
1. Arrive at The Distillery
On the day of your visit to The Ginstitute please get yourself to The Distillery at 186 Portobello Road about 10 minutes before your session starts to allow for checkin and to ensure that your party is able to sit together. Enter through the door on Talbot Road and you’ll arrive into The Distillery shop. Announce yourself to our shopkeeper and hand them your voucher. You’ll be directed downstairs into the History Room for the remainder of the masterclass.
2. Meet & Greet
Once all the guests have arrived downstairs you will be greeted by your Gin Instructor. Your host will then explain to the group the format of the next hour, if you’ve read this you can just ignore them.
3. The Masterclass
Your Gin Instructor will then take you through a brief history and provide detailed instructions on how to prepare the five classic gin cocktails so that you are the envy of your friends at your next home cocktail party. You will be taught how to make and will enjoy samples of The Martini, The Tom Collins, The Negroni and The Clover Club. This is an interactive class where each guest will learn the techniques and the trade secrets behind making these drinks perfectly.
