Gin blending experience launches at Macdonald Rusacks hotel

St Andrews-based Eden Mill Distillery launched a gin blending experience at the Macdonald Rusacks Hotel offering gin fans the opportunity to create, bottle and label their own unique spirit, this week.

The £150,000 tourist attraction, called Blendworks, is housed in a specially-designed spirits emporium overlooking the iconic Old Course 18th hole and is designed to reveal the secrets behind the spirit.

The Blendworks experience will run twice daily and cost £95 per person including a gift pack with three 20cl bottles of the gin, Blendworks glasses and a certificate. Guests will also enjoy three cocktails during the session with two of them crafted from their own recipe.

During the three-hour session participants will be guided through the science and history behind the spirit before exploring different botanicals and flavour profiles in a nosing and tasting session led by an Eden Mill expert.

Eden Mill will extend Blendworks to whisky blending by the end of the year.
