Students will learn about the history and production process of making gin at the historic McClintock Distilling production facility. Afterwards students will get a chance to sample and smell individual botanicals and learn about taste profiles of different styles of gins. Finally, students will be able to make their own custom gin blend of botanicals to take home and make their own compound gin.
