THE EXPERIENCE

How much do you love gin? Enough to sell the shirt off your own back? Your body? Your soul? At the height of London’s Gin Craze of 1750, women sold what they could to fuel their gin addiction.

Come and sip your way through the history of the juniper berry with our ultimate gin experience, a ‘sin’ and tonic afternoon in the seedy backroom of Millport’s most notorious spirit producers.

Experience some ‘spiritous’ entertainment with Madame Judith Defaux, reputable server of a 'drop of the ‘ard stuff’, and her sometimes able assistant Mistress Sally Swally (Sal), as they take you back in time to the drudgery and squalor of Victorian backstreets for a look at the rise and fall of gin.  

Taste the result of hundreds of years of gin production as Madame Defaux demonstrates some delectable cocktail concoctions from the backroom kitchen still. Your afternoon of gin infused banter begins with a ‘perfect serve’ gin and tonic followed by demonstrations of two fabulous cocktails, as well as a selection of canapes which have been specifically chosen to complement our gins.

We cannot promise that you will leave the building with your character in-tact or that the afternoon won’t affect your ability to form coherent sentences; however, we can promise you great entertainment and laughs, sampling Millport’s finest spirited offerings. We’ll also give you a lovely souvenir cocktail glass and recipes to take home.

Gather a group of friends together in Millport this Spring and Summer for this fabulous gin experience.

Note: Do not sign up for this experience if you have shown recent symptoms for any of the following: smallpox, cholera, typhus, scarlet fever or covid.
