Welcome To The Botanist’s Bay
Our idea is simple… we come to your venue with all the ingredients, equipment and expertise for you and your guests to make your gin. Each guest will make a bottle of their own recipe gin, using raw botanicals, grain alcohol and a juniper concentrate. Our parties last around 2 and a half hours and are suitable for 8 to 30 guests. From a hen do to a work social… any excuse to get together and make gin!
We use the ‘bathtub’ cold compound method, so no distillation is required, and we have developed a unique formula for a one hour infusion, meaning you will be able to take home your craft gin, named and bottled the same day.
