Nicky and Jason, owners of WhataHoot Gin, are never happier than when sharing their passion so they’ve created a fantastic range of experiences and masterclasses welcoming gin lovers to their wonderful boozy world. Go back to the classroom at their purpose-built Gin School in a beautiful heritage building at the heart of King’s Lynn.

Then it’s time to design your own concoction, experimenting with over 30 botanicals from across the world including Madagascar, Egypt and Spain, as well as Norfolk’s famous lavender and sea samphire.

  • Making a 70cl bottle of gin to takeaway with personalised label
  • Indulgent 4 Gin & Tonics during your session (per person)
  • Discover the history of Gin and WhataHoot whilst on a Distillery Tour
