Great gift idea

Maria can keep her rain drops on roses and her whiskers on kittens. At this stage in the week, our favourite things are gin and afternoon tea. In that order.

So what a happy coincidence that today’s Big Deal is for a gin masterclass and afternoon tea at the rather slinky 56 North on West Cross Causeway.

Stylish cocktail bar

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

56 North has been named the Spirits Bar of the Year by the Scottish Licensed Trade News and 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.

8 premium gins

Today’s Big Deal options are for one or two people to take part in a gin tasting masterclass at 56 North.

The masterclasses run at 3pm on Saturdays and Sundays and we can’t think of a finer way to spend a weekend afternoon.

A journey in gin, 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. 

The premium gin brands tasted at each session may include Berry Bros & Rudd London no3, Caorunn, William Chase, Hendricks, Tanqueray, Bombay Sapphire, Whitley Neill plus one other guest brand.

Fever Tree tonics will be available as mixers throughout the class.

Afternoon tea

As well as the gin masterclass, today’s offer also includes a delicious afternoon tea. Gin is delightful but gin and afternoon tea is even better.

This Big Deal writer has done a gin masterclass before and it really is amazing how many different flavours and aromas you can pick out when tasting gin properly.

If you want to have fun while learning all about this versatile spirit then raise a glass to today’s Big Deal button and hit the buy button.

It’s the ideal event for a group of friends; it would make for a very different stag or hen and it’s perfect for anyone who wants to know more about this fascinating drink.

Of course, today’s Big Deal would also make a great gift for the gin lover in your life.
