Hotham’s Gin School and Distillery is located in Hepworth’s Arcade, in the Old Town of Hull. Gin lovers are able to visit the Distillery not only to buy bottles of Hotham’s Gin, but also to join in a unique experience day where they will learn about the history of gin, botanicals and the gin making process, finally distilling their own unique bottle of gin to take home.
Founders Emma and Simon met over a G&T back in January 2017. Their shared love of gin inspired their first date at a gin school in the Midlands, where they were inspired to think about developing their own gin recipe. After a year of learning about the gin making process, and experimenting with recipes, they launched a micro-distillery, Hotham's Handcrafted Gin and Hotham's Cardamom Gin, and a Gin School.
Emma and Simon said: “We both love living in Hull and are really proud to be part of the fantastic culture here. We're really excited to bring such a wonderful experience to Hull and to be part of the Old Town scene. We're seeing a big gin boom at the moment, with discerning drinkers showing interest in smaller producers and hand-crafted spirits.
“We can't wait to welcome guests to our Gin School and Distillery, to share our passion for creating gin, and to see others enjoy the gins that we have created.
“And if you don't like gin, you can come along and make a vodka instead!”
