Barossa Valley: Craft Gin Making Experience with Lunch

7. Barossa Valley: Craft Gin Making Experience with Lunch

Take part in a craft gin making experience at the exclusive Barossa Gin School. Each of the work stations has a hand-made Italian copper still, ready to be the foundation upon which you will create your recipe. Working with a clean base spirit, allow yourself to be guided through the process of making a craft gin from scratch.  You'll be utilizing some of the most popular botanicals used in gin making today, as well as some not-so-well-known treasures. You’ll learn about the techniques employed to craft gin.  There will be plenty of different botanicals to play with and select from, so there’s ample room to get creative. By the time you’re finished selecting, measuring and recording your recipe, with guidance from the team if required, you’ll be ready to lift the lid on the still. You’ll sit down to a 3-course meal at The Eatery while the stills heat through and work their magic, mixing together all the flavours you’ve chosen. Once the stills release their freshly-crafted gin you can put the finishing touches to your labels. Once bottled, the only thing left to do to your creations is affix the label and add a wax seal if desired. At the end of the activity you’ll take home your very own personal gin, handcrafted and hand-bottled by you.

What people are saying about Barossa Valley

The driver Peter was very friendy and accommodating. A very knowledgeable and nice man. Loved everything about our tour. Especially the wine tasting, our lunch, the visit to the chocolate shop/cafe and last of all a quick visit to Maggie Beers Farm Shop and cafe. Would definitely recommend this company and this tour to everyone.

This was a great experience that mixed both an opportunity to see parts of South Australia we wouldn't have had the opportunity to see and also explore beautiful wineries in Barossa. Our guide Peter was a local with great depth of knowledge of the area as well as being very entertaining. A perfect day out!

Great wine in a beautiful location. We started with a lovely wine tasting to pick the wine for our picnic and had the chance to enjoy the wine together with an amazing cheese platter with a great view over the vineyard and the Barossa valley. Definitely recommended!

Had a most enjoyable day and was happy with the organisation and delivery of the tour, Paul was pleasant and we were happy with the choices of wineries, would definitely recommend him/Bumsonseats to friends
