It's a Gin Thing

£210 per person

Create your very own bespoke blended gin with the guidance of guest tutor Martin Jennings, the Co-Founder and Craft Distiller of multi-award-winning Pothecary Gin. Plus, archive your personal gin recipe with us, which can be used for Martin to recreate your individual gin to order. No cookery school experience is complete without food, so staying true to the theme, guests will also enjoy a delicious lunch.

As well as leaving with a wealth of knowledge you will also have your very own blended 500ml bottle of gin to share with friends and family. Plus, guests will take home a Pothecary Gin goody-bag and The Kitchen apron.
