This Is Where You Can Make Your Own Gin In Dublin

Do you consider yourself a gin expert?

Whether you do or you don’t, you can head to one of these Irish gin schools!

First of the two, located in Churchtown Stores, Dublin 14, we have Sling Shot Gin School.

Here, you’ll be able to compare and share a host of exotic flavours and botanicals before picking the ones you like. Then, you’ll mix and distil them in a copper still before bottling and labelling it however you want.

This experience is not limited to a certain number of people. In fact, you can book for a range of 1 – 16 people. So, if you prefer a solo experience or a one with a group of mates, this is the place for you.

It costs €100 per person, which includes Sling Shot & Tonics on the night and a 700 ml bottle of the gin that you produced. You can find out more info here.

If you’re living on the north side of Dublin, then there’s also a brilliant experience for you. Copper Pot Gin School is located in Donabate, County Dublin.

When you first arrive, you can enjoy a gin and tonic, learning how to properly taste the gin like a professional. Then, the distiller will give you a brief and concise rundown of the history of gin, going into some detail about the art of distillation and the various steps that are taken to produce a ‘balanced and quaffable gin’.

When creating your very own gin, you’ll be able to choose from over 50 botanicals. You can even bring your own botanicals to experiment with.

You’ll be taken through a step-by-step guide on how to produce your personal bottle of gin.

Once the distillation has started, you’ll enjoy some Sheridans Cheese and Charcuterie before sampling, naming and bottling your creation. The hardest part is probably coming up with a name, so be as creative as possible!
