One of the shortest words in the alcohol lexicon, yet one of the most enduring. It takes its name in equal measure by channelling words from the Dutch and French languages, and the botanical name of a fabulous plant.

If you love gin and want to know how to make it, let me show you how. You will learn about relevant gin techniques that have stood the test of time, and the part they play in today’s global resurgence… You’ll receive a distiller’s view of the gin world, paying homage to its colourful history, its place today, and what gin’s future would look like with you at that helm. Gin is still as magical today as it ever was.

We’ll start by showing you how to make gin. This experience will transport you back in time to the heady days of early gin making and will help you understand and apply first principles. You will learn about botanicals, bases and blending; the 3Bs of gin making used by seventeenth-century gin makers in London, gin’s spiritual home.

Next up, you will learn about the 3Bs – botanicals, bases and blending – before showing you how to make distilled gin. You will learn about decision making, investigation, sampling, testing, improvements and launching; the D.I.S.T.I.L process. This process represents the major technological step-change that drove gin production and consumption to unprecedented levels in eighteenth-century London.”

The Still Magic approach uses traditional gin making equipment, enthusiastic people and quality ingredients to help you create gin from start to finish.[/vc_column_text][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][vc_row_inner column_margin=”default” text_align=”left”][vc_column_inner enable_animation=”true” animation=”fade-in-from-bottom” column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” column_link_target=”_self” width=”1/1″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” delay=”300″][nectar_icon icon_family=”iconsmind” icon_style=”default” icon_color=”white” open_new_tab=”true” icon_padding=”20px” icon_iconsmind=”iconsmind-Facebook-2″ icon_size=”29″ margin_left=”-20px” url=”https://www.facebook.com/marcelstillmagic”][nectar_icon icon_family=”iconsmind” icon_style=”default” icon_color=”white” open_new_tab=”true” icon_padding=”20px” icon_iconsmind=”iconsmind-Twitter” icon_size=”29″ margin_left=”-20px” url=”https://twitter.com/still_magic”][nectar_icon icon_family=”iconsmind” icon_style=”default” icon_color=”white” open_new_tab=”true” icon_padding=”20px” icon_iconsmind=”iconsmind-Linkedin-2″ icon_size=”29″ margin_left=”-20px” url=”https://www.linkedin.com/in/marcel-thompson-62baa01″][/vc_column_inner][/vc_row_inner][/vc_column][vc_column enable_animation=”true” animation=”fade-in-from-left” column_padding=”no-extra-padding” column_padding_position=”all” background_color_opacity=”1″ background_hover_color_opacity=”1″ column_link_target=”_self” column_shadow=”none” column_border_radius=”none” width=”1/3″ tablet_width_inherit=”default” tablet_text_alignment=”default” phone_text_alignment=”default” column_border_width=”none” column_border_style=”solid” delay=”300″]

Gin is one of the most enduring spirits on earth, taking its origins from 17th century Holland. It quickly became the drink of choice for both aristocracies and commoners in 18th century Britain. In ways that are similar to art and music, gin has undergone changes over the years in response to new ideas, technological advances and new techniques coming to the fore.
