What you'll do

"Local Gin Heroes" Gin Tasting takes you on a fun journey around Edinburghs best distilleries and gin brands. We give you an understanding of how gin is made, how to pair with great mixers and discuss how to garnish your drinks. The class is full of useful gin brand information and helps both the novice and the experienced gin lover who has an interest in the ever growing Scottish and Edinburgh gin scene. We welcome you with a gin and tonic made with a gin we've distilled at our own South Loch Gin distillery. We then sample 6 different gins all made in Edinburgh from the new South Loch to the more established Edinburgh Gins made locally. We cover both the big to the tiny craft brands. Everything is paired with premium mixers. Run-time is around 90-120 mins.
