Gin masterclass with hotel republic & Bombay Sapphire (November 2020)

Last year we were lucky enough to experience The Bombay Sapphire Distillery with our members as part of our FAM and you can read all about the trip here. This time though, we went back again (but as has been for most of this year’s events), we took our members on a trip to the distillery, virtually.

Working with Hotel Republic on this very special event for our members, we hosted a masterclass event and had a wonderful time.

Bombay Sapphire has a variety of experiences on offer for your delegates to participate in virtually to cover all budgets. Our group was fortunate to participate in the “Shaken Tom Collins & Shaken Gin Sour” Experience which meant we received a lovely delivery ahead of time with everything we needed to participate (including a full-size bottle of fab Bombay Sapphire which I am drinking as I type!

The kit contained everything necessary to be able to make our own Tom Collins & Shaken Gin Sour including our very own citrus press and one of those twisted bar spoons that I never actually knew how to use (I do now!!).

The experience kicked off with an overview of the distillery and an introduction to our host and our mixologist for the evening. As someone lucky enough to visit the distillery in-person last year, I can hand on heart say I felt like I was actually on-premise. The tech and set-up for the virtual experience was outstanding and our members loved it. We made two cocktails and undertook a mini-quiz in between with the experience lasting just over an hour. It was fantastic.

Hotel Republic with Bombay Saphire are offering three unique experiences which are all well priced and just perfect for that client event or team building event. As we start to move back to in-person it is also useful to note the distillery can accommodate up to 400 on-premises.

Can’t recommend this experience highly enough. For more information, reach out to Chris –
