Waitrose Offers Gin O’Clock and You Can Experience It from The Comfort of Your Home

A new gin tasting experience is now available from Waitrose & Partners where you can enjoy five different gins without leaving the comfort of your own home.

Waitrose Wine Tasting at Home has launched “Gin O’Clock”, a two hour informative experience led by one of their specialists, either hosted in your home, hired accommodation, office or event space.

The Waitrose & Partner specialist will bring all the gins straight to your door, so you can relax and enjoy being the host.

The tasting includes five types of gin, including a pink pepper and sloe gin, paired with a variety of Fever-Tree tonics. The specialist will take you through the fascinating history of gin and demonstrate the art behind getting the perfect blend of botanicals using a pestle and mortar.

You will also learn how to make the perfect G&T.

All the gins will be served straight initially, so guests can appreciate the aromas, before being served with a splash of tonic. After the tasting, any remaining gin will be left for you to enjoy and each guest will receive their own Fever-Tree Dartington crystal glass.

“The Waitrose Wine Tasting at Home Gin O’Clock experience is a fun and relaxed way for you and your guests to find out more about various gin flavour profiles. From knowing how much ice to use, to which glass choice is best, our experience will help hone your gin and tonic making skills” said Andrew Riding, Drinks Experience Manager at Waitrose Wine Tasting at Home.

The service is available across the majority of Britain and bookings can be made from 1 May, with pre-booking available now. The experience is priced at £400 and can be for 6-10 people.
