The idea is you pick about a dozen of your favourite flavours from our collection, ranging from fruits, berries, flowers, spices, tropical fruits and herbs. And from these you create your own recipe for the three drinks you are going to create. We offer Gin, Rum and Vodka as a base spirit. Once you are happy with your newly created spirit, you then head over to the bar and pick your mixer of choice and a garnish to suit. The experience also includes a selection of nibbles to ensure you’re feed as well as watered!
