Okokuzithokozisa kuqondiswa ngu Adam

  1. amahora angu-3
  2. Ibungazwa nge IsiNgisi

Ozokwenza

We will start with a tour of Captain Bligh’s Brewery and Distillery, and sample a range of the spirits that I make including, of course, the gin. We will then talk about alcohol production and the basis of different gin styles. I will then guide you through the process of making your own unique bottle of gin from botanicals you have selected. Not only will you get to make your own gin, but you'll get to take it home and enjoy your unique creation at your leisure. During the session, we will also discuss some of the history of gin and story of distillation in Australia. As the group size is limited to two, this is an intimate and informal workshop where you can ask as many questions as you like and receive as much or as little assistance as you desire.
Other things to note
Enclosed, sturdy footwear essential; warm and/or layered clothes. BYO lunch or something to snack on (can purchase from nearby eateries). Be aware if you're driving of alcohol limits, and there are parking limits on the street outside.

I’m an award winning distiller, and have worked for three award-winning distilleries (concurrently) and am currently the Head Distiller at Captain Bligh’s Brewery and Distillery. I have realised that although many people love drinking gin, its history and how it's made remain a mystery. Not only does it have a historical reputation as "mother's ruin", but because so many botanicals are involved in the making, it's also been used for medicinal purposes - by apothecaries and the like. Not too many people know the fascinating story of gin, let alone the intricacies and the fun involved in creating the drink. I would like to prescribe a remedy for that.

Lapho uzoba khona

Captain Bligh’s Brewery & Distillery, 64 Warwick St, Hobart. You will be working on the brew floor, attending the tasting bar, peeking into the fermenter room and thoroughly investigating the distillery/bond store. Keeping in mind, this is a very small family business, so you don't travel far between spaces. A few steps... maybe!

Ilinganiswe ku-5.0 kokungu-5 ngokusuka kokushiwo abanye okungu-3.

Great experience. Much above what we expected. Very knowledgeable and informative. Also a lot of hands on experience. Also had a very cool and friendly dog ‘Bounty’.😊. Myself and my partner loved every minute.

Awesome personalised experience. Adam was extremely knowledgeable and very generous with his time. Also got to meet his father and dog which added to the relaxed, intimate experience of seeing a small craft distillery and brewery. Highly recommended.

A not-to-be-missed experience for gin lovers. We learned about the entire process of gin production, and then created our own personalised gin with our favourite botanicals. Adam provided just enough guidance to ensure our “first-batch” gins would be drinkable ! In addition to the gin tasting ( which was fabulous) we had a taste of Adam’s other spirits, and Steve’s strong scotch ale, which now fills our fridge. Adam is an excellent storyteller, and extremely knowledgeable. We learned about the history of gin, distillation in Australian, and the building in which Captain Bligh’s is located....amongst many other things. We asked many questions, and Adam had the answers to them all. It was a memorable experience. The highlight of this visit to Hobart !
