What an amazing experience. The chance to learn about gin and mix our own recipe was excellent.
Pauline our sommelier and guide other than having the most perfect accent was knowledgeable, entertaining and fun. This activity is highly recommended.

Mixing gin, drinking gin, talking about gin while tasting gin... if you're a gin enthusiast, Bass and Flinders Gin Masterclass may be nirvana. The venue was lovely, as were the staff and the gin. Someone is on hand to provide advice and help rescue any gins people made that weren't tasting as intended. Making and tasting our own gins was such fun and we would definitely recommend this class. Cracked open one of the gins we made last night and it was delicious! Now I want to come back and make more...

Recommend you bring a sober driver, as we enthusiastically sampled a fair bit of gin during the masterclass.

We visited the distillery to purchase a new bottle of the Cerise gin which we had just finished. We both enjoyed a gin flight and sampled some new and interesting gins- with a chat with one of the owners as a bonus.
If you fancy a gin with some new tastes - this is a definite try.

I can’t recommend the experience highly enough at Bass & Flinders. It’s known as a Gin distillery but actually it covers Grappa, Vodka, a full range of gin’s and lemoncello. Amazing and informative staff, fun environment and seriously good products. Forget what you think you know about Gin and get there for a tasting, it might change your world, or at least the way you view your world.
