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.

Guest gins

Here's the full list of the gins on offer:

Guest Gin Number 1: Scurvy Gin from The Wrecking Coast Distillery

This Navy Strength, 57% gin is not for the faint hearted. It's made using 9 botanicals, including scurvy grass, this was given to sailors in the 19th century as a source of Vitamin C! With Cornwall's famous sea-faring history and links to the Royal Navy, the scurvy grass provides not only a bright, peppery taste but also an interesting story to this unique gin!

Guest Gin Number 2: Rose Tinkture Gin

It is the result of a personal journey into the drinks that should always have been. The finest alcohol, Organic ingredients, nothing nasty, amazing flavours and, well, just a bit of fun! It even changes colour, from Golden amber to delightful pink when you mix it with tonic. It sounds amazing, and we can't wait to give it a taste!
