THE DO-IT-YOUR­SELF GIN

Northern Rivers Style - - STYLE -

When Lord By­ron Dis­tillery opened its door ear­lier this year, own­ers He­len and Brian Restall were of the mind that there were al­ready enough ex­cep­tional lo­cal gins avail­able.

They de­cided the only thing left to do was to let their cus­tomers make their own be­spoke gin. Dur­ing a two hour work­shop in the ‘Ginstitute’ in By­ron Bay, gin lovers are guided through se­lect­ing the botan­i­cals, then steep­ing them in al­co­hol and dis­till­ing in a mi­cro still. Work­shop par­tic­i­pants go home with their own bot­tled and la­belled gin mas­ter­piece. www.lord­by­rondis­tillery.com.au
