Fever-Tree’s Very Own Gin School 

London has always had an enthusiastic relationship with gin; right from the days when the water was undrinkable, gin has become the city’s tipple of choice. Imagine SEEN’s joy therefore, when we heard that this month, gin and tonic experts, Fever-Tree, is launching its very own Fever-Tree Gin School. With so many delicious liquids to learn from and every student having a different favourite, Fever-Tree will be distilling their expertise to create an education in flavour that caters to all tastes.

The Fever-Tree Gin School is an immersive tasting, crafting and distilling experience unlike any other. The focus of the class is less on taking notes and more about tasting notes, as guests channel their inner gin-distiller to create a liquid that is totally unique to their flavour preferences.

The hour-long evening gets underway with a free welcome Gin & Fever-Tree cocktail and a brief gin-troduction to the brand and its range of mixers. After wetting their whistles guests will discover all there is to know about the wonderful world of gin and the different botanicals that give each one its own unique taste and character. Then, tasting turns to choosing, as guests are invited to select the ingredients that suit their palates and preferences, to create their own 500ml bottle of gin. This personalised gin signifies graduation and as grade-A students guests will receive a number of free goodies to take away with them.

The immersive flavour discovery will begin from 23rd August and continue for six weeks, in true celebration of the nation’s summer love affair with the mighty G&T. After the class, guests are invited to extend the G&T themed fun with a walk up the road to the Fever-Tree airstream at St. Pancras Renaissance hotel – the perfect location to test out their newfound expertise!

Now in its twelfth year, Fever-Tree has pioneered the premium mixer category. In 2005 founders Charles Rolls and Tim Warrillow identified a need for good quality mixers to accompany the fast growing array of premium spirits available on the market. The pair travelled from the Congo to the Ivory Coast in pursuit of the highest quality ingredients for the range of mixers.

Since its launch, Fever-Tree has collected a vast number of awards, including the Queen’s Award for Enterprise and was named the Best Selling & Top Trending Tonic Water for three consecutive years by the World’s 50 Best Bars.

Tickets for this summer’s Fever-Tree Gin School can be found via design my night.
