Meet The Maker Experience
This special gin tasting experience is with Kate, our co-founder. It was in 2016 when Kate called her best friend Helen to say: “We’re going to start a distillery – from now on we’re going to make gin!” The rest of the story you can find out whilst enjoying all of fabulous gins whilst in Kate's company.

About our Meet The Maker Experience
Taste each one of our vibrant and characterful gins while discovering more about the botanicals we carefully source from around the globe. Kate will share with you her story, product development, how the business has grown from strength to strength and talk about some of the exciting collaborations we have with other local businesses.
Sip your favourite G&T combination during a tour of the working side of our distillery where Kate will talk you through the processes she created for our luxury hand-crafted spirits.
Bar snacks and canapes are included.
The event itself will last approx 2.5 hours, the bar will remain open if you fancy having another drink or two.

Blushing Monkey Pink Gin
A juniper-led but gorgeously floral colour-changing gin with a delightful sweet, but not too sweet fruity twist

A wonderfully refreshing floral gin with a kick of aromatic green cardamom and uplifting citrus notes from pink grapefruit.
Insane Ostrich Gin
Our take on a classic dry gin, made with lemon and lime zest, coriander seeds, angelica and orris roots. It has a classic gin taste with the vibrant and rich character of a Gin Kitchen Gin.
Gutsy Monkey Winter Gin
Full-bodied rich and smooth with subtle citrus and complex aromatic highlights.
The Ginger Cat Gin
Silky smooth, delicately spiced, vibrant and opulent. This gin created by Reeba, our Head Distiller is made with tonka beans, Iranian orange flower and orange zest.

Reviews of our Gin Tasting Experience in the Surrey Hills
"What a great experience tour with such interesting stories about the history of gin and the owners! The gin tasting experience was very interesting and the gins were just amazing. A lovely evening"
"What an amazing gem to spend Saturday afternoon. Booked Gin Tasting which was fun, Angie is absolutely amazing. They accommodated even our last minute request to have some tapas which was absolutely delicious. Ended up spending over 5 hours drinking gin and eating. Amanda was as amazing with drinks and dealing with us being slightly on tipsy side, well not our fault they gave us gin to drink! Loved it and will 100% return very soon."
"Despite the windy conditions, had a very interesting 'tasting experience' and learnt a lot about Gin and the 'Gin Kitchen' story. Also had some Tapas after the tasting which tasted great and the staff were very friendly and helpful too."
