What you'll do

You'll be greeted at the Drinks Lab with a welcome drink, before enjoying three mini gin cocktails, each with a neat sample of Scottish craft gin, and paired with a different chocolate. You'll then get the opportunity to shake up your own cocktail to finish, all while learning about the fascinating history of gin, from its early origins to the current boom in the industry. Tastings will last for an hour and a half, and are strictly for guests aged 18 or over.
