School’s up at the historic Crown and Shamrock in Newtownabbey: a pub steeped in local history. Owned by the family for four generations and used as a shelter during the war, but more used to sheltering famous and infamous characters in Belfast’s past.
The school itself is set in the cosiest of surroundings. A log fire, some powerful history in photos on the wall, some amazing artisan gin, and some great craic for the duration of your stay.
This is the home of Belfast Artisan Gin. Created by local people with their roots in local industry. Just as the people come together to make this special spirit, so too does the nature around it. Pink heather and rowanberries grown locally on Cave Hill. The flaxseed botanical is a nod to the linen industry that Belfast was at the heart of not so long ago.
Your day at the Gin School will see you create an utterly unique one-of-a-kind gin. No two recipes will be the same, with a selection of more than 80 botanicals. Over the course of a fun and informative two and a half hours, you’ll make this totally personalised product to take home, plus sample a couple of gin cocktails as you wait for yours to be distilled in our mini stills on site.
Make, bottle, label, name and seal your own full-size bottle of Gin to take home!
