The Georgian era was the height of the gin craze, which became known as “Mothers Ruin”.
The average Londoner at this time drank 14 gallons of spirit each year!
Distilling gin was inexpensive because of low corn prices: so much so that by 1750 nearly half of all British wheat harvests went directly into gin production.
And the market for gin was huge.
With a recent gin renaissance, Listoke Distillery & Gin School will deliver the ultimate Georgian masterclass as you get to watch and help make gin.
The interactive session covers all bases from understanding tastes and designing a flavour profile to choosing a botanical (base flavour).
After distillation in the portable miniature still, everyone will get a chance to taste the newly prepared gin!
Georgian Gin School: Hole in the Wall Pub | 24 November | 7.00pm – 8.00pm. Tickets: Adult: £20
