TWSD Mini Gin Experience

At The Whisky Shop Dufftown we are also passionate about gin and we want to share our passion with you.

We will have 6 different gins, including our own Tenacious gin, for you to select one of to sample for free.  You can take your 15ml sample neat, with a splash of water, with a splash of tonic or as a classic Negroni.  According to the top writers on gin, these are the best ways to evaluate a gin.  Our team will be on hand to help you decide which gin to sample and we also have the gin sensory kit to help you identify the botanicals in your choice.

If that whets your appetite, for £5 you can select 3 more samples.  Full size (25ml measure of the gin) Negronis and G&T’s with your choice of garnish will also be available to purchase for £5.

Just drop in to the shop any time between 11am and 5pm

All of the samples and drinks must be consumed on the premises
