The Gin craze is certainly in full flow across Scotland. Tasting a gin in its true glory is a wonderful way to spend an evening with friends and colleagues.
Here at The Gin Thing we provide a great evening of fun at your home or a venue of your choice. Note that this is without the horsebox – please see our Hire the horsebox page for details with the horsebox.
We have three different packages to choose from, although we are flexible with mixing and matching these.
This provides a cocktail to start with, 4 different tasters (5ml taster measures) and a full single measure of your favourite. We take you through the evolution of gin from prohibition era to present day. (Obviously we cannot serve you turpentine, like they did in years gone by, but we can provide the nearest legal and strong tasting spirit akin to it) You choose whether you want to drink them neat with ice and a garnish or complimented by one of our premium tonics. Cost: approx £30pp and takes approx 1-2hrs.
