We have gins from all over the world, from the UK to Australia, Thailand to France and just about every other country that you can think of, even small places such as Singapore and Estonia. So it’s time to taste some and this is why you are here.
Over the years it is fair to say that we have learnt a bit about gin as we have grown our collection to over 300. It’s also fair to say we’re very passionate about gin in all of its intriguing dimensions; its past, with its rich and sometimes dark history, its present, with the amazing array of botanicals being used to create fantastic small batch and artisan gin and its future – which looks very interesting indeed as production gets more and more artisan, bespoke and complex. But who cares about all that, it’s time to drink some gin.
The Azorian and Portuguese gin tasting experience (€30 PP): This experience is all about local gins sourced from the Azores and Portugal. You will taste some unique gins that you will never have heard or seen before, these are very small batch craft gins. We use citrus and herb garnishes from our garden to complete the Azorian experience.
