Barossa Valley: Craft Gin Making Experience with Lunch

1. Barossa Valley: Craft Gin Making Experience with Lunch

Take part in a craft gin making experience at the exclusive Barossa Gin School. Each of the work stations has a hand-made Italian copper still, ready to be the foundation upon which you will create your recipe. Working with a clean base spirit, allow yourself to be guided through the process of making a craft gin from scratch.  You'll be utilizing some of the most popular botanicals used in gin making today, as well as some not-so-well-known treasures. You’ll learn about the techniques employed to craft gin.  There will be plenty of different botanicals to play with and select from, so there’s ample room to get creative. By the time you’re finished selecting, measuring and recording your recipe, with guidance from the team if required, you’ll be ready to lift the lid on the still. You’ll sit down to a 3-course meal at The Eatery while the stills heat through and work their magic, mixing together all the flavours you’ve chosen. Once the stills release their freshly-crafted gin you can put the finishing touches to your labels. Once bottled, the only thing left to do to your creations is affix the label and add a wax seal if desired. At the end of the activity you’ll take home your very own personal gin, handcrafted and hand-bottled by you.

d'Arenberg: The Blending Bench Experience

2. d'Arenberg: The Blending Bench Experience

The Blending Bench is a hands-on, interactive experience where you play winemaker. A palette of wine parcels, each with distinctive flavors and textures, are melded in search of balance, fullness and finesse. The tour operators have done the physical work – picking, crushing, fermenting, foot treading, basket pressing and barrel ageing, so that you get to create a wine that is truly unique. You then bottle, name and label a 750ml sample to take home and show off to your friends! Afterwards explore the grounds of the renowned D'Arenberg Winery, taking in the rolling hills of McLaren Vale.
