Gin Experiences in the Surrey Hills

We love parties, showing people our distillery in the Surrey Hills and creating and tasting new gin recipes so we’ve put together a range of Gin Experiences. From sampling a G&T to distilling your own gin; there's something to suit everybody (over the age of 18!).

All our gin experiences and the gin & cocktail bar are COVID-19 Secure.  In the event you have to self-isolate or the event is otherwise disrupted due to COVID-19, we will reschedule your experience for a future date.

We look forward to welcoming you to The Gin Kitchen.
