Martello Hall Gin Blending

How do you know if you’ve got the perfect gin?

It’s pretty clear.

…because you’ve made it yourself. While being guided through the process by the experts at a small craft distillery. Which also happens to be a bar. Specifically, a rather beautiful one called Martello Hall in Hackney.

Martello Hall gin masterclass

Amongst its many charms (including a roof terrace, a pizza oven and co-working space) is the micro distillery in which they create their own botanically-loaded small-batch gin. Book in for the masterclass, and you’ll get to try a quartet of tonics accompanied with that gin (which range across the flavour spectrum) and undergo a botanical blind taste test, to work out the flavour profiles you prefer. That’ll put you in good stead to start blending, bottling and – the most important bit – naming two gins of your own to take home, all under the guidance of their head distiller Jack Mannering.

Because like they say, amateurs don’t know Jack.


NOTE: Martello Hall’s gin blending masterclasses (£80) are available to book online right HERE.
