Burleighs Gin Academy
Escape to the country for an afternoon of gin-making at the Burleigh’s Gin Distillery, situated in the heart of Leicestershire’s beautiful Charnwood Forest.
Whether you prefer floral, citrus, herbal or spicy notes, you’ll learn how to create your own unique gin using the botanicals of your choice. Burleighs’ distiller will guide you through the process of distilling your gin.
You will distil in one of their pot stills, made from copper for a smoother flavour. Your mini still will be your best friend for the afternoon and once it’s at the right temperature, you’ll need to fill it with your chosen botanicals and let the distillation process begin. While your creation bubbles away infusing the spirit with your chosen flavours, sit back, relax and enjoy a Burleighs gin & tonic. Then bottle your gin, cork and seal it, before taking your 70cl bottle home with you!
