The masterclass starts off with the history of gin, explains how the alcohol and aromatics are distilled, and the fun begins where you mix your own blend of gin. While you are tasting the products of Bass and Flinders, enjoying a cheese platter and a G & T, your bespoke gin is being bottled and labelled for you to take home. All this with a small group, about 20, ensures a personal experience. And don't be nervous about whether you know enough to select your own aromatics, thie basics are explained step by step.

Last stop for the day and wow the gin was fabulous. Straight up shots then a couple with a little bit of tonic. Very enjoyable especially their Cerise gin and added to a sparkling wine yummy.....our host William was a lot of fun and very knowledgable. Great stop

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.
