Cool Edinburgh bar

The American stand-up Phyllis Diller once quipped that the only time she enjoyed housework was when she accidentally poured gin into the iron.

Smooth out the creases in your gin knowledge with today’s Big Deal on gin experiences at the seriously slinky 56 North bar.

Stylish cocktail bar

A stylish cocktail bar and kitchen, 56 North is a cool venue in which to nose, taste, compare and contrast different gins.

Named the Spirits Bar of the Year by the Scottish Licensed Trade News, they know their hooch, especially gin.

They have over 80 bottles of gin from all over the world and this masterclass will help you get to grips with this hugely popular spirit.

Journey with gin

Options one and two are for one and two people respectively to have a Journey with gin masterclass.

The most popular of all the classes run by 56 North, this is a great starting point for any gin lover.

Over the course of eight gins, the classes cover gin production; its history; the botanicals and rare spices used in flavouring gin; the liquid itself and, most importantly, what characteristics to look out for when tasting gin. 

Cakes and sandwiches are served as light nibbles during the classes.

The classes last 90-120 minutes and are available Saturday and Sunday.

Happy gin fans

The gin master classes at 56 North have introduced many gin fans to the finer points of their favourite tipple.

Taken from recent TripAdvisor reviews, this is what a couple of customers thought:

‘Gin tasting masterclass with James – most knowledgeable and informative. Following the tasting session we had some delicious gins at the bar and then some amazing food and wine. Never been here before, but will definitely return and recommend it to friends… The staff were friendly and the service attentive. All in all a great afternoon.’

‘Just been to our third gin tasting at 56 North. Again great afternoon out. Very well presented, well laid out, just the right size of group. Can’t wait till next one comes around. Never thought there was so much to learn about gin.’

Gin has provided the Big Deal team with some of their happiest experiences, read our recent blog post with 56 North’s James.

If that sounds like you then raise a glass to this versatile spirit and hit the buy button for today’s Big Deal.

It's something different and a perfect gift for my gin loving boyfriend.

I enjoy gin and tonic and have recently been trying out different gins so this deal is good for combining a day out with something different to do and may be extended into a weekend break.
