Gin & Tonic Pairing Masterclass

Singapore, Singapore

Experience hosted by Abhishek

2 hours
Includes food, drinks
Up to 10 people
Hosted in English

What you'll do

Very few people know that the ubiquitous gin and tonic combination originated in the jungles of Malaya. This workshop will take you through how necessity created a cocktail and how popularity took the drink very far away from its roots. Finally we will learn how the modern craft movement bought the drink back to the philosophy of the original drink.

You will taste three very different different styles of gin with 5 different types of tonic waters. And once you choose your favourite from each pairing, the bartenders will make you a full gin and tonic of your preferred pairing. Finally, you will get to garnish your drink with botanicals of your choice to complete your perfect G&T.

You will also be served samples from our food menu to line your belly as you proceed through the workshop.
Other things to note
Be warned: This will be a boozy session. You will have about 225ml or about 7 standard drinks by the time you are done.

Such a great experience. Tristan is a great storyteller and fantastic bartender. We truly learned a lot about Gin, tonic and cocktails. The bar is amazing and this class is something we will benefit from for years to come with our new found cocktail making prowess. Definitely worth the price and I can't recommend it highly enough!
