Create your own gin at BUMP Caves

Bump Caves Max Charter

Calling all gin junkies: dive bar and distillery BUMP Caves has launched another series of their popular and irreverent masterclasses - this one a hands-on session themed around the process of distilling gin, with plenty of creative and sampling opportunities thrown in.

Master distiller Max Charter will lead these bespoke evenings, using the bar’s Rotary evaporator to teach you how to distil your own gin from base neutral grain spirit - you’ll then be able to create your own unique gin recipe from a choice of 10 botanicals.

Charter will also demonstrate how to put together three gin cocktails - including the bar’s signature drink, the BUMPed G&T - which you’ll be able to try, alongside charcuterie from Cannon & Cannon and cheese from Neal’s Yard. And nobody goes home empty-handed: the goodie bag includes a bottle of your own gin creation, plus a bottle of BUMP Caves’ Victory Gin.

The first of these masterclasses will take place on February 28 from 6-8pm, and they will run once a month from then on until May. Tickets cost £95 and can be booked via the bar’s events website. See the website for future dates.
