Hotham's Gin School and Distillery



Get creative and distil your own gin with tastings and cocktails for two at Hotham’s Gin School and Distillery in Hull. You and a fellow gin enthusiast can enjoy this award-winning experience, where you’ll receive expert help from our distiller, a masterclass, and plenty of delicious gin to boot.

Kick off with a Hotham’s Original G&T, distilled on site, before embarking on a spirited discovery of the fabled drink. Explore over 40 different botanicals and choose your favourites to put in your own creation, before perfecting your recipe with the help of the distiller.

You’ll hear all about the distillation process whilst enjoying gin cocktail, and you’ll taste your own gin as it distils, experiencing how the botanicals release their unique flavours. The distiller will show you how to measure the strength of your gin - and how to taste gin properly! Learn about the history of gin, about the Hotham’s brand - all whilst enjoying plenty of gin!

Finally, you’ll bottle, name and label your 70cl bottle of distilled gin, adding the Hotham’s seal of approval! Your recipe will be kept on file, so you can order a bottle of your own gin whenever you want, to be delivered straight to your door. 

Don’t forget to take graduation photos before you leave!
