Our hugely popular tasting menus are a great way to explore the world of gin or to try gins you may not have come across before. The selection of gins on Tasting Menu #1 and #2 change each season and we have a fantastic batch of new gins for you for the summer.

Isle of Harris 45% is a small batch savoury gin made in the Western Isles in a community distillery using eight traditional gin botanicals plus locally harvested sugar kelp.
