Workshops are held from 11.00 am – 3.00 pm on Tuesday and Fridays

Master distiller Bill McHenry will guide participants through a tasting of well known gins to identify each spirit’s principal flavourings—known as botanicals. Participants can then note their favourite flavours and use them to craft their own gin recipe, and gin, using individual clear stills .. so you can see the process.  Everyone leaves with their own 500ml, personally labeled bottle of gin … and 500ml of McHenry Classic Dry Gin…. to take home.

Gourmet Traveller described McHenry’s Classic Dry Gin in an Australian line-up as “far and away the prettiest, most harmonious and enchanting gin we tasted… makes an amazingly refined G&T”.

A range of Tasmanian botanicals can also be included for use in the gin workshop—perhaps lemon myrtle, saffron and lavender. You can decide…

The workshop includes a guided tour of the distillery and property at Mt Arthur, located close to Port Arthur, and a gin flavour-matched gourmet picnic lunch.

The Workshop can be booked by those wishing to drive themselves, or be escorted on one of Bespoke’s day tours.
