Have been twice now, a must if you are a gin lover. It is really exciting making your own bottle of gin and then tasting it.

A thoroughly interesting and delightfully informative time at the Gin School. Now I understand why some gins taste better than others - Burleigh's Gin is the best. The skill of the 'teachers' is amazing and the advice given for blending is exemplary. A fantastic experience.

Great venue to learn the gin making process and concoct your own Gin. Loads of choices of botanicals with knowledgeable staff to help us to not screw it up. Good afternoon out.

What a great time! The Gin School in Leicester city centre provides a brilliant few hours of entertainment and education. The whole premise is to brew (not sure if that is the correct term, possibly distil) your own, unique, bottle of gin, then take it...More
