01 WELCOME

On arrival, you will receive a good old Northern Irish welcome with a G&T and will be shown to your Gin station where you will find a mini copper still, your recipe card and everything you will need to make their own Gin.

Local friendly hosts will share the story of local distillery Belfast Artisan Distillery where locally inspired botanicals are used to make their London Dry Gin with a ‘Belfast Twist’.  These locally produced spirits are available to sample throughout your Gin School experience.

You will learn about the process of distilling Gin and everything you need to know to create your own bespoke recipe.

02 SELECT

You choose from over 80 botanicals. Whether you prefer fruity, spicy, floral, herbal, earthy, bitter or a mix, you choose your own combination for your unique recipe.  There will be a teacher present to guide you every step of the way.

03 DISTILL

The mini copper stills are then set and it’s time to enjoy a Gin Cocktail while you wait for your Gin to start to distil. Once your Gin is distilling you can taste your spirit as your unique flavours develop.

04 BOTTLE

Enjoy another Gin or perhaps a Gin Liqueur as you have fun bottling, naming, labelling and sealing your Gin.

o5 GRADUATE

A final Gin Cocktail is served to celebrate your new Gin and you are now a Belfast Artisan Distillery Graduate ready to leave with your signature bottle of Gin.
