Barossa Gin School - Distiller for the Day Craft Gin Making Experience

For the Gin lovers who would enjoy making a bottle of their very own Craft Gin.

Each of our stations has a hand-made Italian copper still ready to be the foundation upon which to create your recipe.

Working with a clean base spirit allow yourself to be guided through the process of making not just any Gin!  

We'll be creating your Gin recipe from scratch.

Utilising some of the most popular botanicals used today, and some not so well known treasures. You’ll learn about the techniques we employ to craft our Gins, giving you the confidence to get hands on during session! We have plenty of different botanicals in our collection to play with and select from so there’s ample room to get creative. By the time you’re finished selecting, measuring and recording your recipe (with guidance from the team if required) you’ll be ready to lift the lid on the still.

We’ll sit down to a 3 course meal at The Eatery while the stills heat through and work their magic, mixing together all the flavours you’ve chosen. Once the stills release their freshly crafted Gin we can put the finishing touches to your labels.

We’ll measure and break back the spirit from still strength to bottle strength with pure water for a cleaner taste, ready for bottling.

Once bottled, the only thing left to do to your creations is affix the label and add a wax seal if desired.

And the best part? You’ll be proud to take home your very own personal Gin recipe, Hand Crafted and Hand Bottled by you!
