Bill Lark Master Class

Sat 22 Nov 10.30am – 12.00pm (Room One) $185 per person

Meet BILL LARK Australia’s Godfather of modern Craft Distilling and Chairman of the Australian Gin Awards. Given the amazing emergence of Australian gin in recent years, Bill will give you a little history of this very popular spirit and will present the six trophy-winning gins for you to taste, discuss and perhaps mix with a little tonic!. These winners have been selected by nine industry judges from an estimated 180 Australian craft gins and Bill will take you through the tasting and explain how these winners were made and why they are trophy winners.

StrangeLove premium tonic waters and canapés will add to the 90 minute class.


Giniversity Master Class

Sat 22 Nov 10.30am – 12.00pm (Room Two) $140 per person

Giniversity invites you to invigorate your taste buds and refine your botanical blending skills with a Giniversity Experience. Led by Distiller Katie Lovis who’s travelling all the way from Margaret River, the master class is a customised slice of what you can experience at Giniversity’s home, Margaret River Distilling Company, when you enrol in the Giniversity Experience.
Brimming with flavour as only Margaret River can do it; the class will explore just how far you can push the boundaries of your favourite white spirit (GIN) while letting your creative juices flow.
This unique cocktail experience will allow you to mix and match flavours like a master distiller – blending botanical distillates before pairing your creation with the distillery’s house-made fruit shrub and finishing it off with your choice of dehydrated garnish.
Strangelove mixers and tonic waters and canapés will add to the cocktail experience.
You will leave the class with a unique hand-crafted cocktail and a wealth of knowledge around the intricacies of gin, well prepared to explore the GIN PALOOZA.

Love a good High tea? Well you can Join Nick and Ally the KARU Distillers and their High G&Tea party but first their love for Juniper!

You will learn the importance of the tiny berry and its powerful profiles which vary from country to country and what they have to offer and how the different region of berry affects the flavour profile. You’ll explore the percentages of alcohol and just how much of a difference a percent can make to a gin. Sample the KARU Affinity Gin at both 44% and 40% and taste the massive difference. Then have some fun at the Karu High G&Tea Party where you will learn to use a premium cocktail infusion poured from an elegant glass tea pot and be spoilt with a delicious Affinity Gin Chocolate from Treat Dreams. Oh swoon…!
