Overview

Gin Tasting Devon Masterclass

We've scoured the Westcountry and the rest of the UK to find some of the rarest and most exceptional gins known to mankind for an awesome gin tasting Devon masterclass! We'll be in the Warren Retreat from 7.00pm.

Our last gin tasting evening went down a treat, so get ready for a bigger and better Gin Tasting Masterclass!

The guest gins have been selected, details of which will be released closer to the event.

We've learnt the hard way not to sample too many gins on an empty stomach. Our head chef has crafted a mouth-watering Local Taster Meze Menu to accompany the beverages.

There'll be gift sets and hampers available, if you'd like to share the gin love this Christmas!

Guest gins

Exeter Gin - Devon's capital sits just 12 miles up the River Exe from us, and now Exeter has it's very own premium gin. Produced in small batches in a traditional copper still, this robust yet smooth gin celebrates Exeter's Roman heritage and occupation between AD55 and AD380. You can very much taste the Roman theme, as the gin is flavoured using ancient botanicals such as tarragon basil, cardomom, marigold, plus 11 others. The result is an outstanding gin experience, and we're very much looking forward to sampling this!

Ten Tors Seasonal Gin - Produced by Dartmoor Spirits, they only produce small batches which enables them to get to know each and every bottle! The flavours change with the seasons, reflecting an ever changing array of botanicals, berries, blossom and fruit on offer locally. The varying tastes and styles provide excitement to each new season, and we cannot wait to sample this delicious gin!

Granny Garbutt - Distilled using a 'one-shot' method in a traditional copper still, this refined small batch gin uses fourteen botanicals to give it it's distinct flavour. These include moorland botanicals such as heather and gorse - this a properly moor-some gin! Named after a mischief loving Granny, we're sure that a few sips of Granny Garbutt's will have you ready to start some shenanigans of your own.

Plymouth Gin - This unique gin has been distilled using the same blend of seven exotic botanicals, soft Dartmoor water and pure grain since 1793! The distinct notes of coriander and cardomom blend with the juniper for an utterly fabulous taste! Their Black Friars distillery is the oldest working gin distillery in England and the gin produced their has been around the world with the Royal Navy, a firm favourite of its sailors!

Wicked Wolf - We've tried this premium craft gin from Exmoor before. And we're excited to get our hands on it again. It says a great deal about the care that goes into creating this small batch gin from just up the road. 11 botanicals produce complex layers of citrus and pepper notes. Lovingly blended, filtered, bottled and labelled by hand, we can't wait to taste the aromatic flavour!

Curio - This gin is all about the flavour! It's a Rock Samphire gin distilled four times, capturing the light, fresh sea spray and the wild aromas of the Cornish coast. Hand foraged on the local cliff tops, the rock samphire is blended with fragrant botanicals and distilled in small batches, ensuring exceptional quality and a delicately smooth gin.
