Have you ever thought about creating a perfume inspired by gin? How about a gin inspired by the finest French perfumes?
Well, now you have the opportunity to do both right here at Bass & Flinders Distillery in this one off event!
Did you know that back in the 18th century, the lines between food and perfume were blurred, and the first botanical eaux de cologne was both a popular fragrance and drink? Today there are many similarities between gin and perfume that still exist, including the essential, botanical herbs and flowers used to produce exciting new hand-crafted gins.
