A Dutch physician is generally credited with first infusing juniper berries into a spirit base thereby giving gin its first name as Genever, which is Dutch for Juniper, was gradually shortened by the English to 'gin'.
But gin is not just gin as this tasting tutorial will reveal. You will become experts in botanicals, and taste the difference between London Dry and Plymouth gin.
Of all alcoholic drinks, gin has the most dramatic and colourful history and when it comes to using the excuse 'for medicinal purposes only' then that really applies to gin because it was invented by a doctor to treat stomach ailments.
Neil will give you some nifty tasting tricks and teach you how to make some top-class cocktails at home. During the session, you’ll taste 5 premium gins, as the aim here is for you to sample the entire flavour spectrum gin has to offer.
