Gin Masterclass Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get to the distillery?

Bass and Flinders Distillery is located at 232 Red Hill Road, Red Hill, Victoria.

If you choose not to drive, there are a number of private transport and tour companies that operate in the area:

How many standard drinks are consumed during a masterclass?

All of the spirits served during the masterclass are at 40% alcohol. As you create your bespoke gin, you will sample various distilled botanicals as you come up with a recipe you are happy with. In addition to this, we will offer you a gin and tonic and will conclude the class by offering samples of some Bass and Flinders gins. Participants are responsible for their individual alcohol intake. We encourage you to drink responsibly.

Can I bring along a friend to accompany me during a masterclass?

Anyone who attends a gin masterclass must have a valid ticket. We have limited seating capacity around the table and unfortunately don’t allow friends to accompany you unless they have purchased a ticket.

When will I get my bespoke gin?

Your bottle of bespoke gin will be created towards the end of the class and will be available for you to take home with you that same day.

Can I reorder bottles of my bespoke gin in the future?

We keep all recipes on file so if you love your bespoke gin (and we hope you do!) you can reorder bottles through our website:
