- 150 British pounds£150
THIS LISTING IS FOR 1 ADULT, USING 1 STILL, 1 BOTTLE TO TAKE HOME (Please see next listing to book for 2 people sharing a still & bottle to take home, at a reduced rate for a pair) This is a 4 hour afternoon experience, beginning at 2pm with an immersion into foraging along the Severn Estuary coastal flats, meadows & hedgerows. We will meet in a car park close to the Severn Bridge, from where we will embark on an approximately 1.5 hour gentle guided walk of an incredibly bountiful area, with beautiful views across the River Severn. Along the way I will introduce you to a myriad of remarkable seasonal wild ingredients with incredible flavours and aroma profiles which lend themselves excellently to gin-making. I will teach you about each plant, how to find and identify them, pick them and how best to capture their essence in your signature creation. Any flavours which excite you, we will pick a handful of for you to use to create your signature gin! Once we have collected our freshly foraged ingredients, we will take a short drive in convoy to Silver Circle Distillery Tasting Room, just 5 minutes away. Upon arrival you will enjoy a refreshing gin & tonic from their fabulous in-house cocktail creations, expert distillers will then explain and demonstrate how gin is made and you can sample several varieties of their award-winning craft gin, whilst learning about botanicals and how to create an original and tasty gin recipe, which you will then produce in your own miniature copper still! Finally you will blend, measure and bottle your unique 70cl creation to take home and savour whilst remembering your wonderful afternoon of foraging & gin discovery in the Wye Valley!
