Your Virtual Gin Tasting Event

Following the success – and fun – we had with our virtual gin tasting events, including a World Record attempt for the World’s Biggest Gin Tasting, we’d love to help you bring people together virtually for upcoming events.

As a team, we love sharing our passion for what we do. We usually do this from our distillery and Gin School. However, due to the current situation, we’re obviously unable to welcome you through the doors. So now we’re taking the experience online!

Whether you’re looking to bring the team back together, replace some Friday after-work drinks or you’re organising a virtual celebration for a birthday, our virtual gin tastings are a great way to raise a glass together, learn something new and feel reunited in these unusual times. 

For smaller groups, you can purchase sets for two from our online shop.

How to Arrange An Event

Each Virtual Gin Tasting can be tailored to your requirements and will be hosted by one of our wonderful Gin School team, giving you a guided session for up to 2 hours. Sessions will use Zoom so you’ll have an exclusive meeting ID for the private session in which our host will talk you through a selection of our gins, the botanicals that make them unique and teach you how gin is made. We can even work in a quick cocktail tutorial! We’ll just need to plan in advance so that you and we can make sure we have ingredients to hand.

We build each package on a bespoke basis, so if you would like to enquire about organising a session, please fill out this form and we will come back to you within 5 working days.

Private tastings are available for groups of ten or more.

Package Prices

We want to recreate our live events for your virtual gin tasting, so our recommended package contains four 50ml gins, four 200ml tonics and two glasses. This is priced at £35 per person plus the host fee and postage.

In order to make the session as accessible as possible, we have also created a reduced package containing two gins, two tonics and one glass. This makes two double G&Ts. We’ll give each participant the opportunity to choose which two gins they’d like, and our host will cover the full range so everyone can learn about the gins they’ve received.

All you’ll then need is ice, internet connection and some nice garnishes – we’ll send everyone details about what garnishes work best ahead of the event.

What does each session include?

  • A bit about the history of Manchester Gin
  • How gin is made and what botanicals make each gin special
  • A guided tasting of the gins you select, including flavour profile, recommended serves and garnishes
  • Q&A – our sessions are fully interactive so you can ask our hosts anything about gin, our distillery or even the perfect cocktails!
Price per person £20 (inc. VAT) £35 (inc. VAT)
Gins 2 x 50ml 4 x 50ml
Tonics 2 x 200ml 4 x 200ml

Additional costs

One-off host fee from £75


Dependent on number of shipments and delivery addresses. 

Unfortunately we cannot cater for members of your group who do not drink alcohol as our spirits do not have any non-alcoholic alternatives.


Need to make it super-special for the birthday girl? Want to thank your employee of the year? We can help you make one (or every!) tasting set that extra bit more special by adding something a little extra to their delivery. Let us know the occasion and we’ll help you go one step further.

Smaller group virtual gin tastings

For smaller groups, we recommend purchasing our Virtual Gin Tasting Set to enjoy alongside the recording of our previous live tasting.
