You can now distil your own gin at the Causeway Hotel, by the world-renowned UNESCO Heritage Site, The Giant's Causeway launching  23rd of April. The experience is hosted by the founders & head distillers of the new Basalt Distillery, who recently secured their exclusive distribution deal over the UK mainland with Hammonds of Knutsford for their flagship brand & product Giants Basalt Rock Gin.

Co-Founder & Distiller Martha Garbe (25) stated: "The Distil with Giants experience is an interactive, hands-on experience that gives you an in-depth introduction into the art and precision of distilling using iStill technology.  We will guide you through the fundamentals of gin distillation and recipe development from which you will pick from over 30 botanicals to create your own unique gin recipe. Each iStill Nano is controlled on its designated iPad, where you can dial in your chosen head, hearts, and tails cut points to create your desired flavour profile. This enables you to really create something unique to your own flavour palate"

Prior to distilling, the participants will discover the history, production and botanicals behind Basalt Distillery's flagship product, Giants Basalt Rock Gin, as they are guided through the neat tasting experience. Guests will be also be welcomed with a signature Giants French 75 on arrival followed by gin & tonics served throughout.
