Why not treat yourself, or a loved one, to a gin making workshop at Black Cat distillery’s Gin School where you will create your own bespoke 70cl bottle of gin. We will introduce you to the distilling process, the history behind gin, and the bewitching story behind the Black Cat name. Of course you’ll have a gin and tonic in your hand to enjoy.  Designing your perfect gin is our next step where we introduce you to a wide variety of botanicals, helping you to create a beautifully balanced recipe with interesting flavour profiles. Next is the weighing out of the botanicals and then you get your hands on your individual copper pot still. As the still is producing your lovely gin, we will have another gin and tonic (or two!) and enjoy a Cumbrian Charcuterie and Cheese Board. Your gin will now be ready to bottle and ready for you to take home. Of course, we all want to try your bespoke gin. Don’t worry – we’ll be with you every step of the way.

😻🐈‍⬛😻 It is a hard life here at the distillery: hosting gin workshops, meeting lovely people and sampling  lots of delicious gins.😻🐈‍⬛😻
We had a lovely day yesterday with Michael and Tracy on our gin workshop. Tracy created a refreshing cucumber gin with delicate floral notes with a hint of raspberry  whilst Michael created a beautiful floral gin with a lovely twist  of orange and a delicate cubeb pepper finish.
Both truly gorgeous gins. Well done. #ginlondon #ginuk #gin #ginandtonic #ginandtonics #fruitgin #artisan #craftgin #blackcat #blackcats #penrith #edenvalleycumbria #lakedistrictfood #artisangin #artisandistillery #lakedistrictdaysout #ginworkshops #thingstodointhelakedistrict #thingstodo #thingstodointhelakes #birthday #birthdaypresent #birthdaypresents #birthdaygiftideas #birthdaygift #ullswater #ullswaterlakedistrict #ullswaterwedding #ullswateryachtclub #penrithdaysout
