Gin has experienced a huge surge in popularity over the last couple of years. With record amounts of gin sold in the UK last year, it’s fair to say that gin has shaken off its old-fashioned image and become trendy again. This boom shows no indication that it is slowing down any time soon, with 2016 even being declared as the ‘year of gin’ by the drinks industry.
The activity begins with an introduction to gin including its history, the distilling process as well as the intricacies of gin including the botanicals that are infused to make the drink to make unique flavours.
Guests will then be split into teams who will get the chance to taste a range of artisan gins and complimenting tonics. Delegates will fill out tasting notes throughout the session and will be quizzed on what they are taught at the end of the activity.
After a tasting session, groups will then get the opportunity to make a gin-based cocktail which will be judged by our Gin Expert. Points will be awarded to the team with the best cocktail and prizes will be presented to the team with the best overall score.
Our relaxed and informal Gin Tasting Workshops are a fun way to unwind after a conference or meeting. They are also a great activity pre or post-dinner.
This activity can also be run purely on a participation basis for those who would prefer not to feature the competitive element.
