Arrive at The Distillery

Once you step through our doors you’ll be greeted by your distiller and a Piston & Tonic of course, before settling down at one of our 12 copper still work stations. Your distiller will then explain what’s in store for the next few hours.

Discover The History Of Gin

You’ll learn about the history and heritage of Gin, discovering the origin and uses of it back in the early 1600’s, as well as its development throughout the years, up to its recent resurgence today.

Learn The Process

Next, you’ll learn about the magic that happens inside your still to create Gin, and how to correctly use the equipment for optimum results. You’ll also be told all about botanicals, the building blocks of gin, so that you’re ready to create your perfect recipe.

Selecting The Botanicals

Now its time to get hands on, smelling, touching, and tasting your botanicals to understand what works well with what, and to create your bespoke flavour. Don’t be afraid to experiment with unique combinations, or keep it simple, the choices are endless.

Bottle Your Gin

Finally, you’ll bottle your completely unique creation and then name it with your own customised Piston Gin School label before taste testing it to see how it stacks up to our own Gin.

Graduating & Sampling

It wouldn’t be a school without a little graduation; so, if you’re up to it, enjoy another drink with your own concoction and take the rest home to impress your guests.
