Attended 2 hour workshop on Gin and tonics with my husband. It was a great evening, we learnt so much whilst tasting gin (the perfect evening!). Cecile, the host is extremely knowledgeable and held all the delegates interests for the entire workshop. Highly recommended.

The tastings are usually 7pm to 9pm. They run at various venues in Southampton and Winchester. You do need to book. If you check the website there is a list of tastings and availability.
