The Ulitmate Gin Tasting Experience- Train your tastebuds at One Square’s Ginnasium

One Square, the modern Scottish restaurant and bar on Edinburgh’s Festival Square, will launch a series of gin tasting masterclasses perfect for those looking to expand their knowledge of the fashionable botanical spirit.

Home to over 90 gins including their very own small batch, One Square is regarded as one of the original gin bars in Edinburgh. Their experienced Gin Expert will take guests on a journey through the spirit’s long and illustrious history, beginning with its origins as a medicine, through to the gin craze which gripped Britain for over 200 years and then finishing with the gin-naissance being enjoyed today.

Expert knowledge on the innovative distillation processes will be shared including how different botanicals and infusions help create unique and exciting flavor combinations, including Old Raj Gin which is distilled using saffron and One Square Gin which infuses a range of 15 botanicals including Scottish heather and Mediterranean liquorice.


Served in One Square’s impressive bar, located in the luxurious Sheraton Grand Hotel & Spa, eager students will have the chance to sample four gins of their choice from a crop of boutique and larger distillers along with a range of botanically brewed tonics from behind the bar. The experience ends with the chance to batch and wax seal a personalised bottle of One Square Gin and encouragement to stay a while to put newfound skills to the test.

Available on weekends at 12pm, 2pm, 4pm and 6pm, the Ginnasium Tasting Experience lasts two hours and costs £35 per person. Other timeslots are available on request and bookings must be made in advance.
