Trying different gins just got truly exciting
Gin lovers of the city should already be au fait with Cambridge Gin Distillery – the innovative, much celebrated local gin-makers known for their unique methods and flavourings (including a little number infused with red ants…).
You may have sampled their wares – their gin is served at various bars around the city – or you may have even popped down to their erstwhile home on Trinity Street for a tasting, but this week they’ve unveiled their most exciting endeavor yet: a brand new, three story gin ‘laboratory’, complete with tasting lounge, shop and classroom, right in the heart of the city centre.
Located at No 10 Green Street, at the site formerly home to Catesby’s, the new premises will offer ginthusiasts the chance to create their own gin, tasting their way through a variety of gins and distillates, tweaking their blend until they find their perfect recipe.
If you want to learn more about the fascinating history and mysteries of ‘Mother’s Ruin’, from how the spirit almost destroyed 18th-century London to how it’s produced, book in for a tutored tasting session. Informative, funny, and, naturally, filled with swigs of gin, the classes make for an ideal night out with friends, hen do or corporate team-building activity.
Upstairs, there’s flights of gin to try, plus a range of cocktails and speciality coffees, whilst you can also purchase any of Cambridge Gin Distillery’s products downstairs.
