We went to the gin master class on Saturday and had a fantastic experience that we would recommend to everyone. The venue is beautiful, close to a train station for public transport and has a fantastic selection of gin and food when open as a restaurant.
The masterclass is great value for money, we got a G&T on arrival then made our own custom gins from scratch to our individual tastes which we took home, we also enjoyed a gin tasting of the distilleries favourite gins, a cheese platter and a delicious lunch.
Even those who don’t normally like gin would enjoy this experience because you can make alcohol from scratch to taste however you like and it is hands on and engaging.
Hosts Brett and Deb were extremely knowledgeable and kind, they took into consideration allergies and intolerances with lunch and were very accommodating. We would highly recommend and will be back.

We had an incredible time with Puss & Mew Distillery. They were very kind, and patient as they took us through giving us instructions for the best gin combinations. Picking ingredients and watching the gin distill was amazing. Accompanied by delicious tastings and a yummy pizza lunch the Masterclass was easily one of the best distillery experiences we’ve had and we wouldn’t hesitate to do it again.

Brett and Deb presented a fantastic 3 hour gin Masterclass at their Puss & Mew Distillery. At first, it may seem daunting to choose your own botanicals but they both make it a fun and informative experience starting off with a base recipe and providing excellent guidance along the way to create your own. They have a big range of botanicals to choose from including Australian native! Whilst you gin is doing its thing, you are taken on a distillery tour and a really good lunch is served paired with their excellent gin. I highly recommend this experience, it’s a lot of fun, Deb and Brett are great hosts and you might just make the best gin ever!

Not only did we learn so much about the process/history, but we also got to take home our personally made gin! The experience included gin tasting & lunch spread including a range of hot sharing plates and meat and cheese platters! Yummmm! I already want to do it all over again!
