We bought this as a Christmas present for my brother and his wife and the 4 of us had a great time. Being able to actually make your own gin was brilliant, and Will was an excellent host and very informative. I would recommend.

Thank you for a fabulous evening, we enjoyed learning about the botanicals and the gin distilling process. Can't believe we have made a very drinkable bottle of gin! If you enjoy drinking gin, this is a must experience, you won't be disappointed.

You are in for a special experience and come home with knowledge of GIN.RUM and more. The best part is drinking what you have made and of course its all in the water.
