White Oat Distillery Masterclass

Ever wondered what sparks a genius? For Tudor Duxbury, Head Distiller at White Oat Distillery, it all started with a mischievous 13-year-old and a love of science!

Fuelled by curiosity and a dash of boredom, Tudor’s hobby of tinkering with ingredients blossomed into a lifelong passion for crafting exceptional gins.

Now, Tudor invites YOU on an exciting journey! Join our exclusive masterclass and for a taste of paradise, look no further than White Oat Distillery tropical gin collection! This trio of Queensland gins is your ticket to a flavourful getaway. Dive into the vibrant sweetness of Mango Gin. Feeling a little adventurous? Take a sip of our Chilli Mango Gin, where a touch of heat plays with the juicy mango notes. And for those who love a splash of berry, Berry Pink Gin offers a delightful fusion of summer fruits and a refreshingly smooth finish.

This is more than just a tasting, it’s an experience! Secure your spot NOW before they disappear!

And there’s a bottle of gin up for grabs!

Tanglin Gin Masterclass

Join visionary founder and head distiller, Tim Whitefield on an exhilarating journey into the heart of Singapore’s first-ever Gin distillery, where craftsmanship meets innovation in the art of gin-making.

Tim will guide you through a tantalising exploration of three exceptional gins that define the essence of Tanglin’s craftsmanship. First in line is the Tanglin Orchid Gin, a modern classic that marries the juniper’s piney embrace with the unexpected spice of Amchoor and the delicate allure of Vanilla Planifolia Orchid.

Next up, the Tanglin Singapore Gin unveils a symphony of flavours derived from native Asian ingredients. Young Ginger and Kaffir Lime Leaves dance with Chilli, Cassia, and Mandarin Peel, delivering a sensory journey that tingles the taste buds and leaves a delightful lift.

And finally, the Tanglin Black Powder Gin. A true powerhouse in the world of gin, this extraordinary creation has earned the prestigious Double Platinum award at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. With a formidable 58% ABV, it’s smooth enough for sipping, but beware – this gin packs a punch and demands respect.

To complement this extraordinary gin tasting, each expression will be expertly paired with delectable accompaniments including Long Rays mixers, enhancing the overall experience and ensuring a symphony of flavours.

Immerse yourself in the stories, flavours, and craftsmanship that define these exceptional gins. Whether you’re a seasoned gin enthusiast or a curious newcomer, this masterclass promises an unforgettable hour of discovery and delight.
