Event description

Description

Join us ‘Under the Stairs’ at Fourth & Church, Hove for a two and a half hour gin experience, which includes a guided tour through gin's dramatic history, food pairings and cocktails. At the end of the event you will have made your blended your own bottle of gin to take home.

On arrival please introduce yourself to the team in the shop where they will provide you with an drink before being shown downstairs where the whole group will be greeted by our award winning gin instructor.

By this point you’ll hopefully have finished your first drink because there will be a classic cocktail and amuse bouche pairing waiting for you. Your host will then explain the format of the next few hours.

During the first 45 mins our Gin Instructor will take you on a journey though time and space. We will explore the origins of this juniper infused beverage in Ancient Greece, as a medicine across Europe, and it’s arrival in Britain before delving into the Golden Era of cocktails. Finally we will arrive at the ‘ginaissance’ this historical drink is currently enjoying. During this experience you’ll get to try a selection on specially paired light bites and historically inspired gin drink samples.

Then it’s time for another gin and tonic based on our special 'Under The Stairs' blend before our expert instructor explains the processes involved in creating gin. They will give a detailed explanation of how to go about choosing the various botanicals before you blend you own gin. The aim is to help you define the flavour of the gin you are about to create.

You will be tutored through a tasting and nosing of the botanical distillates that are available to you, some will be familiar to you from the worlds of cuisine, perfume and confectionary, others less so. This is where you really get to understand the impact each botanical is going to have on your end creation.

Having made your selections your host will assist you in blending the various distilled botanicals together to create your completely unique recipe. A full bottle of this will be assembled which each guest of 'Under the Stairs' is able to take home with them on the night. This recipe is also recorded in our library which means that additional bottles can be purchased by contacting us at any point in the future.

Once each of the guests has created and received their blend of gin you will all be invited back upstairs for one last drink and a bottle of our house gin to take home with you.

Tickets include a 10% discount per person at the end of the tour (terms and conditions apply).

Fourth & Church is based opposite Hove town hall and only two minutes walk from the Brighton & Hove seafront. We look forward to seeing you soon!
