Located just 30 minutes outside of Seattle, send an interesting evening finding out exactly which gin is right for you. Which unique blend best represents your style. You will also learn about the history and production of gin, while enjoying a couple of classic Gin cocktails. Taste the many independent flavors used to make most gins in the world. What does orris root taste like when isolated from other flavors? What about elderflower, or cucumber?

Create your own personal botanical recipe which you can take home with you! If you could make your perfect gin, what would you include? What would you exclude? In addition to the standard juniper flavor (big or minimalist), do I want my gin to have: Heat? Citrus? Spice? Floral notes? This personal gin experience represents who you are as a gin fan!
