 GIN SCHOOL 

Dartmouth Distillery Masterclass

Come and spend an afternoon at the internationally award-winning Dartmouth Distillery Co, on the Calancombe Estate, to enjoy a hands-on masterclass and learn the art of distilling, with our Head Distiller.  He will take you through each step, to produce your own bottle of bespoke gin or vodka, to take home and share with your friends.  

 

Learn a little about the history of gin and discover some of the secrets of making award winning Dartmouth English Gin, and how our Müller aRoMat copper still produces such lovely smooth spirit.

Learn to operate of one of our 10 authentic 2½ litre copper alembic stills and select from a range of over 60 botanicals to create a unique spirit, with some guidance from us.  Feel free to bring some of your own botanicals, or forage for them on the Estate.  We will help with your recipe, to enable you to make a well-balanced and delicious spirit, to be proud of.

Once the distillation is under way, decide on a name for your spirit, and we will produce a unique label for you to fix to your bottle, once you have filled and sealed it. We will also ensure there is a little extra spirit left over to sample and compare with others’ creations.

Naturally, there will be opportunities to enjoy a delicious Dartmouth Gin and Tonic while you work…

why not arrive early and enjoy a delicious lunch in our Visitor Centre too?

We had a great time at Dartmouth gins's distillery school. We were taken through the whole process of making our own personalised gins by lance who was incredibly helpful and welcoming. We learned so much and got to create (and taste) some amazing Gin. It was only last week but I already want to do it again so I am sure we will be back! The experience was perfect gift and I would strongly recommend it for any gin lovers whatever your preferred mixer! Thanks to lance and the team, we will be back!
