A really brilliant day for anyone remotely interested in food and drink. The masterclass was interesting and engaging and Chris is a great host. Simpsons is a simply stunning venue and the kitchen tour was an unexpected treat. Highly recommend!

Everything about the day was fantastic! From coffee on the terrace on arrival, the talk from the head chef, being educated on gin making, eating the most amazing food, making the gin, decorating the bottle and sampling. A memorable and thoroughly enjoyable day - thanks to all involved.

Chris makes the story of gin very interesting and is a wealth of knowledge. It was really good to hear about how different botanicals impact the flavours of gin and he's very helpful when it comes to making your own gin. Lunch at Simpsons was exceptional. I would love to do again.

I received the Gin Masterclass as a Christmas present. This was the perfect gift for me - I love gin and fine dining!! I hadn’t been to Simpson’s in Birmingham before (had visited the restaurant many years ago when it was in Kenilworth). I invited my friend who also enjoys a G&T and as a trained chef she enjoys fine dining too. We really enjoyed the day - from start to finish. Chris from Gin Britannia was really knowledgeable and we really enjoyed the Gin Masterclass (can’t wait to try my gin in a few days time) and our meal at Simpson’s was divine. An excellent present, great company and would definitely recommend.

Had a fantastic day at Gin Britannia. It’s held at Simpson’s which is a famous Michelin star restaurant in Birmingham. At the start, they gave us a tour of the restaurant and we got to meet some of the staff and chefs and saw inside the kitchen which was which was a real treat. A very relaxed and friendly bunch of people. The gin class was great fun. The host Chris, really knows his stuff about gin and is a great laugh and made us feel really welcome. We had a lot of fun deciding the ingredients and what we wanted our gin to (hopefully) taste like. After making your gin you need to leave it for a while and you break for lunch. The food was excellent as you would expect in a Michelin star restaurant. One of the best lunches I have ever had. Ashley, the young waiter who served us was a top fella and really made the day. Back upstairs to try a little of your gin and end off what was fantastic day out which I would really recommend. Chin chin

A very unique experience, the whole day was amazing. Couldn't recommend it enough, even if you are not a big gin fan it is very educational and entertaining. However it is a MUST for any gin enthusiast.

Our host, Chris, took us through a fairly comprehensive history of the origins of Gin in what can only be described as a both interesting & amusing manner. We were then given the opportunity to construct/devise own recipe. The Simpsons lunch was magnificent as ever, our "classmates" were delightful & the whole proved to be most enjoyable. We will return!
