Gin & Rum Masterclasses
Session 1: Gin Masterclass | Saturday 28 September 2.30pm – 3.30pm
In this interactive masterclass, you will not only learn about the rich history, alchemy and production of this virtuous tipple, but you will also have the opportunity to discover for yourself, the subtle art to making a good gin.
The masterclass allows you to get hands on and will have you experimenting with a number of pure distillates – including native lemon myrtle, juniper berries, finger limes, coriander and orris root. The master distiller of Rockhampton’s boutique distillery, Saleyards Distillery, will guide the class through the process of curating a unique recipe and finally, the distillation of a signature small batch of gin.
A perfect chance to channel your inner alchemist, have some fun, learn more about about your personal tastes and sip on a glass of your very own batch of gin after the class.
