Small batch stills

This Big Deal option one is for one person to take a gin stills tour and tasting at the award-winning bar.

56 North have been running gin tastings and masterclasses for several years.

Following on from the introduction of their gorgeous in-house stills, this experience is a new way to get behind the scenes of this hugely popular spirit.

Lasting around 60 to 75 minutes, this gin tour will show you how gin is made on the premises at 56 North and, of course, you will be able to sample the fruits of their small batch stills.

You will be welcomed with a G&T made with one of the bar’s Distillers’ Edition Gins. Made exclusively in 56 North’s traditional copper pot gin stills, they are only available in 56 North.

The gin will be paired with a specially selected tonic and garnish which best compliments the gin.

The team will explain how they match the different tonics and garnishes for the best results. Perfect for when you are planning your next G&T night at home.

While you enjoy your G&T, the team will talk you through their botanical store and let you see and try the botanicals.

Next, the tour moves over to the copper pot stills for a unique tasting of several more Distillers’ Edition Gins.

The class is suitable for both gin aficionados and novices.
Afterwards, you can impress your friends with your newfound status as ‘supreme guru of juniper juice’. All hail.

The tour will finish with a tasty gin cocktail.

Scottish Gin and Cheese Masterclass

If that doesn’t take your fancy, try option two – the Scottish Gin & Cheese Masterclass.

Artisan gin is, of course, exploding in Scotland and with 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 experience will help you get to grips with the hugely popular spirit.
