Cambridge Gin Laboratory

Cambridge Gin Laboratory is an interactive space in the centre of Cambridge, dedicated to the appreciation of gin!

The Classroom

The Classroom is dedicated to gin education. You can choose to be guided through the history and mysteries of gin production through the ages, discover how to taste like a professional, or even blend your own bottle of gin guided by our gin lab experts. The Classroom tastings are by appointment only, and can be booked below.

The Study

The Study is our exclusive event space for private hires – please get in touch at for more information about booking a tutored tasting or gin blending tailored to your group.

The Shop

The Shop offers you the chance to blend your own gin with no appointment necessary, as well as stocking the entire portfolio of award winning Cambridge Distillery products.

To view availability for any of our tastings, click “Book Now” below and fill in the number of people you want to see availability for. We list our availability three months in advance.

Vouchers and tickets are non-refundable. If you cannot attend a tasting you are booked for, please let us know as soon as possible on and we will do our best to reschedule you if possible. We can however not guarantee a rebooking. Cancellations made within 48 hours before the tasting cannot be rebooked.

Tickets for all our tastings can purchased as a gift voucher, which can later be redeemed into a ticket for a specific date.

If you are purchasing a gift voucher, simply click the gift voucher option when purchasing the ticket via the Book Now button below. You will receive a PDF voucher including a voucher code, to be used for redeeming the voucher into a place on a tasting. If you would like the recipients name to feature on the voucher you need to fill in their name under “Full name” when booking. All information such as confirmation and reminder will go to the email the voucher was booked with. You will have the option of receiving a Gin Lab card should you want something to give as a present – details on that option will follow as part of your confirmation email.

If you have a gift voucher to redeem, simply click Book Now on the relevant tasting below and fill in your voucher code to see the available dates for the relevant of people. The voucher code will not be used until you confirm the date, so you can have a look at the calendar without redeeming the voucher code.
In the booking calendar, green dates have good availability, yellow dates limited availability and red dates are fully booked. If you would like to be put on a wait list and contacted in case of a cancellation for a specific date, please contact us on .

The voucher code is valid for six months from the date of purchase, and cannot be extended.

If you want to add more people than the voucher is valid for, you need to make two bookings – one redeeming the voucher, and one purchase of new tickets for the same date. To ensure availability for everyone on the same date, we recommend you to check the availability for your total number of people first.

The nature of our classroom means that the sessions we offer are subject to change in terms of schedule, duration and offering. Changes may be made at any time – if you have any specific queries please get in touch before booking.


Group Bookings


Whether you are interested in an evening of gin cocktails, a group gin blending session or simply want to book one of our regular tastings exclusively for your own group, we would be happy to find a set up that suits you. To get an idea of the topics usually covered in our tastings, see our Tastings section above.
In non-Covid times, our regular tutored tastings in the Classroom held up to 16 people per tasting. We are now able to offer this space for private use for groups up to twelve. We can also offer our top floor Study for groups of up to twelve (previous capacity 20 people, seated).
Please contact us on and we will get back to you with a suggested set up and price, which will depend on factors such as the size of your group and time of the week.
