Now we are making the GreatGins whisky tasting experience available to you!

Every gin tasting is tailored specifically to your requirements; be it for ten people or fifty, the experience will be unique to you. There are no assumptions about whisky knowledge level, all your attendees need to bring is an open mind, enthusiasm and a willingness to try new things.

Each person’s attendance includes: 

  • Official GreatGins mat
  • A 20 minute intro to the history of gin and the format of the event
    • Tailored to the theme of the tasting, for example:
      • Gin from different parts of the country
      • International gins
      • Barrel aged gins
      • Limited editions etc.
      • Beginners gin understanding
      • An exploration of London Dry Gin

      • Japan and the Far East
      • We will be discuss and tailor once you book a whisky tasting with GreatGins
  • A guided tasting by me through five gins including distillery stories
  • All gins presented in official Glencairn tasting glasses
  • There will be an educational side too so everyone will be able to properly nose and drink gin by the end
  • The opportunity to enjoy more after the official tasting finishes
  • We even bring all Glencairn glasses with us, clear up and take them all with us again leaving no cleaning or tidying burden to any venues we work with, not bad eh?


“Your laid-back attitude was perfectly pitched and thoroughly enjoyable to listen to” – Attendee


Costs per person are dependent on the amount of people attending and the gins we will be sampling i.e. limited edition gins will cost more because of their rarity and inability to try again.


“Was a fun night and I got a lot of great feedback from all who came along” – Dom, KAPLAN University
