Gin Making Masterclass

Our masterclass is one of the more unique Gin experiences available in Victoria. Be ready to be a true Distiller using our individual Copper Alembic Stills imported from Portugal.

This is a full Gin making experience, please allow 3 hours. The experience  includes lunch or dinner and plenty of tastings of our bespoke gin, you will not leave hungry! First we will take you through Gin’s interesting and colourful past. Then we provide you with an understanding of the science and process of fermentation and distillation. After that you will meet “Dudley”, our 500 litre Australian made Copper Still, that makes all our favourite Gin recipes.

Then the real fun begins. You will have full access to our botanical wall, a purposely designed layout where you can select botanicals based on the flavour profile you want in your final Gin. You will be using real botanicals, placed in your own Still to create your own spirit. It doesn’t get better than that!

Gin tasting is hard work, but someone has to do it.


Your Gin, Your Recipe

Whilst watching the magic happen you will then be treated to grazing platters, fries, salt and pepper calamari, chipotle chicken ribs and pizza, as well as tastings of our incredible Puss & Mew range of Gins. You will be able to see your Gin creation come to life right before your eyes. We recommend you don’t drive to enjoy the whole experience, however if you are driving, please be mindful of your drinking.

The final stage will be the preparation of  your spirit ready for bottling in your take home 500ml Bespoke bottle. You will then get to taste it straight out of the still! Your one of a kind recipe can be kept by us should you wish to reorder in the future.

Corporate and private masterclass enquiries welcome!

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!

We attended the Gin Masterclass and it was absolutely fantastic!! What a great experience!! 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!
