Gin School:

Become a distiller for the day as you create your one-of-a-kind bottle of Scottish Gin. Under the guidance of our gin school team, you will learn about the art of distillation and what it takes to create a great tasting gin. To create your bespoke gin recipe, explore our botanical collection some of which are grown in our own cottage garden, and consult your gin school guide and flavour wheel to ensure you get the balance of flavours just right.

The hands-on experience continues as our team take you through the steps of distilling and you begin to make your one-of-a-kind gin on your own copper mini still. Enjoy a tour of Darnley's Distillery whilst sipping on a few refreshing G&T's and a tasting of the Darnley's Gin range. At the end of the experience, you will fill, label and name your unique creation to take home and enjoy in a branded Darnley's gift bag.
