Day out with a difference

Gift idea for gin lovers

Know the difference between London Dry and Plymouth gin? Or can you tell your Beefeater from your Genever?

If you’re not quite sure, then isn’t it time you gained some gin-sider knowledge?

Today’s Big Deal from 56 North bar in Edinburgh gives you the chance to do just that, with a choice of two gin masterclass taste odysseys.

Afterwards, you can impress your friends with your newfound status as ‘supreme guru of juniper juice’. All hail.


With this Big Deal, you have two options, depending which gin and food pairing most floats your boat.

Choose between the Gin Odyssey Masterclass, where samples will be paired with fruits and chocolates, or the Scottish Gin & Cheese Masterclass.

Chocolate or cheese? Chocolate or cheese? Oh, the pain of choosing.

Gin Odyssey Masterclass

With this masterclass, you will get to sample eight different gins with premium mixers. These will be paired with fruits, food and chocolates, meaning you will gain a robust (if somewhat tipsy) understanding of different styles of gin.

The class is suitable for both gin aficionados and novices, and you will learn a little bit about the drink’s dark and debauched history too. The session will run from 90 to 120 minutes.

Scottish Gin and Cheese Masterclass

Artisan gin is, of course, exploding in Scotland and this masterclass will take you on a fun jaunt around the Scottish gin map. You will be given an overview of how gin is made and get to try out eight samples complemented with premium mixers.

Drinks will also be paired with a stunning cheese board for the group to share. The session will run from 90 to 120 minutes.

Award-winning bar

56 North was Scotland’s first ever gin bar and the 2017 winner of the Scottish Gin Awards – Gin Bar of the Year. In other words, they know their stuff.

Inside you will find a stylish cocktail bar space in which to nose, taste, compare and contrast different gins.

The bar actually stocks over eighty bottles of gin from all over the world and this masterclass will help you get to grips with the hugely popular spirit.

Happy gin tipplers

Here is what a previous 56 North Gin Masterclass attender had to say about the experience. We have edited their review for length:

‘Superb, informative and friendly, enjoyable visit. 2 hrs of Gin education and tasting…lovely atmosphere, friendly service…extensive selection of gin!’

Let the fun be-GIN

Today’s Big Deal for a gin tasting evening at Edinburgh’s 56 North Bar offers two tempting choices. Either embrace your sweet tooth with the Gin Odyssey Masterclass or go sassily savoury with the Scottish Gin & Cheese Masterclass.

Whichever one you choose, you will enjoy a merry day of tippling among your fellow gin lovers. So why not book a couple of vouchers and take a friend along?

Alternatively, this would also make a swish and stylish birthday gift with a difference.
