Have you ever wondered how gin is made? We wondered too! That’s why we decided to join our good friend, Beck, on this RedBalloon experience to visit Tiny Bear Distillery to find out how gin is made and taste some delicious gin. If you’re looking for a fun and unique present for someone special, RedBalloon’s gin distillery tour and gin tasting experience is definitely a fantastic gift idea for your partner as an anniversary gift or a birthday gift for a friend.
“Prepare to be GINspired!” at Tiny Bear Distillery.
We had the absolute pleasure of having Sally, the distillery manager at Tiny Bear, as our guide for the day. She brought us on a fascinating behind the scenes tour of the distillery and walked us through the entire process of how they make their glorious gin, from the impressive fermentation station to the final distillation. Most alcohol-drinkers may already understand how wine is made, having visited wineries and vineyards. Although visiting a winery is a lovely experience offered by RedBalloon as well, embarking on a gin distillery tour is a new and interesting experience for most, that would make a terrific gift for those curious to learn more about what goes into making a must-have in any bar—gin!
Let the fun beGIN! Take a look at this unique experience.
After the tour by the knowledgeable and friendly Sally, you’ll have the opportunity to enjoy the long-awaited tasting session, where you get to sit down and savour an exquisite tasting paddle of Tiny Bear’s gins, paired perfectly with a selection of gourmet cheeses.
For those looking for a more intimate and personal experience with a partner, you can read through the tasting menu by yourselves to learn all about the different notes of each gin, enjoy the cheeseboard and one another’s company. Or if you’re feeling chatty, you can let Sally tell you more about how each gin is made and the ways to bring out their unique bursts of flavours with the accompanying spices and garnishes provided. Truly something for everyone!
Best of all, the strength of the drink is up to you! If you don’t fancy having the gin neat, you are offered a pleasant tonic as a mixer so you can enjoy your drink your way. This makes it the ideal experience for casual drinkers who prefer something a little lighter, but also ideal for those who love a potent alcoholic beverage.
