THE GIN KITCHEN TOUR AND TASTING #REVIEW…

Posted by Devenia Besant on 07 Jul 2021

One of my most favourite things to do with the Epsom and Ewell Families platform is running some amazing giveaways.  Over the years we have given away weekends away, family meals, vouchers, hampers, classes, memberships and much more.  One of the giveaways we have run which I thought I would share more info on was a visit to The Gin Kitchen – a distillery in the Surrey Hills crafting award-winning spirits (with love and laughter they say).   As well as hosting tasting and distilling experiences and parties they also supply luxury stores, five star hotels, Michelin starred restaurants, independent bars and wine and spirit merchants.

Our giveaway winner recently visited and gave us a review and it’s now firmly on my must visit list:

I won through Epsom and Ewell families a tour and tasting at The Gin Kitchen, Dorking. What a fantastic experience it was!

Firstly, I was grateful for their flexibility (I won the prize at a time where I couldn’t go due to personal circumstances) I was very pleased when I got in touch again and they were totally welcoming.

What was the tasting and tour like? It was run by a highly knowledgeable and funny gentleman who had the right balance of history, fact and humour. As he talked to us, the gins kept coming and we were encouraged to sniff in the heady aromas (the gins are mostly 48% proof) quaff and guess the botanicals. Five gin tastings later we were told to pick our favourite to be made up at the bar. 🤪

I had booked a table for dinner afterwards and the delicious tapas went down a treat. One more gin needed to wash it down. A fantastic night out all round and we will be going back to try the latest gins they are cooking up.

TRANSPORT
1 mile from Dorking so you can take a train then a cab.
Worth noting, Uber does not pick up from here but they have a good relationship with a number of cab companies so we were able to get back to Stoneleigh no problem at all.
