The Cambridge Distillery is the world’s first Gin Tailor. We produce bespoke gin blends for individuals, institutions and some of the world’s leading restaurants, whether purely to suit your personal taste or to commemorate a special occasion.
All people are unique, and so too are their palates. As the world’s first Gin Tailor, the Cambridge Distillery is the world leading expert in creating bespoke gins to suit individual preferences.
Our private Gin Tailoring sessions are strictly by appointment only. Either held in our distillery, or in one of our specially-selected venues across the country, you will be treated to a two-hour consultation with our Master Distiller – whose palate is used by international wine and spirits competitions to judge quality spirits across the world.
During the tailoring, you will be taken through a flight of blind tastings to determine your palate preferences and sensitivities, before having a bespoke gin recipe tailored to suit your individual tastes. Our uniquely small batch distillation process allows us to tailor your gin to your exact specification, and to produce it just one bottle at a time – or in quantities of up to 60 bottles. The price of your tailoring includes your first bottle, which will be delivered to your door in a silk-lined oak presentation box.
Due to the exclusive nature of our tailorings, spaces are strictly limited. You are welcome to bring one other person to accompany you during the tailoring (or have a joint blend designed), but we are sadly unable to accommodate groups at these sessions.
Most of our tailorings take place here in Cambridge but we also regularly visit London, Bath, Manchester and Edinburgh – please check our availability calendar to see when we’ll next be visiting your city.
Due to increased demand, we are migrating to a new booking system which we hope to have live within the next couple of weeks. In the meantime, please contact us directly with your preferred arrangements and we'll take care of the rest.
We only create Tailored Gin for the finest institutions. Our Alumni include the House of Lords, British Airways Concorde Lounge, and some of the most exclusive restaurants and hotels in the world. A Cambridge Distillery Tailored Gin is the pinnacle of spirits personalisation: we can use botanicals sourced from within your own grounds, within a particular time-window, or even grown to order for your own specific recipe.
Our team of industry-leading experts, who have created our entire line of internationally acclaimed products, will assist you in perfecting your new gin – enabling you to stand head and shoulders above your competition.
No matter what your imagination can dream up – Cambridge Distillery has both the expertise and experience required to make your flavour aspirations a reality.
