Gin Making Experience Gift

As an great alternative to a gin making kit in a box or tube why not give the gin lover on your life an hands-on guided make your own gin experience. We recently discovered an amazing distillery based at Bishton Hall, in the heart of England and that offers a fantastic immersive experience in gin making.

As part of the experience, participants are guided through the creation of their own unique gin blend using a science kit (the hall was once a private school and the distillery is in what was the old science labs).

They are provided with a choice of 3 base gins and 12 blending botanical gins to experiment with creating your own blend, and encouraged to note their choices. After completing their gin making experiments, participants can taste and compare their three blends to choose their favorite, which will be bottled for them to take home.

We hope you have found this article useful in deciding if a make your own gin kit is a great gift idea for your friend or loved-one if so have been able to discover the best gin blending kit for them.
