What others are saying


This was an incredible experience, Alan & Dan were just wonderful. If you really want a unique experience then this is definitely something for you. Worth every penny.

-- Cathy H - Darwin, Australia

This is an excellent activity for big groups and for small ones to indulge in... A brilliant night out for sure!

-- Julia B, Aberdeen

I would highly recommend anyone to attend this as you will definitely have a good time and get to leave with a bottle of gin made by you!

-- Darryl M, Aberdeen

We did a gin tour and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves! Alan and Dan were friendly and so very knowledgeable about gin and the history of distilling in Aberdeen. The gin they make is delicious and we tried all the lovely flavours. What they have done with the space in the Arches is great and we are looking forward to going back to do the gin school.

-- Jen and Tim, Aberdeen

This was possibly the best birthday gift experience I've had. It was a joint gift for my daughter and I who have birthdays several days apart and we had a memorable, informative and entertaining evening. The venue has wow factor, the hosts are helpful, knowledgeable, informative and professional and we came away with our chosen gins. The range of botanicals available was mind boggling and I was glad the hosts expertise when we were selecting our mix. So much fun...

-- Pauline, Aberdeen

Fantastic evening at the Gin school. It was brilliant : informative and entertaining in equal measures. Dan and Alan went above and beyond to make sure our experience was special and were great hosts. We were looked after start to finish and would highly recommend.

-- Emily T, Aberdeen

We did the tasting masterclass. It was great, learned a lot and had way more drinks than we expected. Alan and Dan were really great and I would highl recommend it for anyone that wants to discover gin or maybe doesn't like it much and is open to diacovering it! Thank you!!!

-- Thibault, France

We went for the discovery tour, upon arrival you get a double (their own ‘Fresh’) gin & tonic which didn’t last very long. Interesting history of gin making in Aberdeen. Very friendly hosts and good fun. We’ll be back for the gin school 👍

-- Kenny M, Aberdeen

Friendly staff, lovely atmosphere, delicious gin. Whats not to love?
