Booking in advance recommended – Click here – While Portugal is better known for its port, that hasn’t stopped it from producing some excellent gin. Join us as you are guided through the rich history and flavours of gin with gin expert and host here at the Solar Branco Estate, Ali Bullock. This experience is held come rain or shine. When the weather is nice, the library doors are open, bringing the beautiful views of the green hills of Sao Miguel to the ocean beyond. There is also ample seating outside and we invite you to tour the grounds with a G&T in hand. For rainy days, we have comfortable seating inside.
Your gin tasting takes you through the very best gins from the Azores and Portugal as you learn about the history of gin and its modern renaissance. You will try 3 gins with selected tonics and garnishes matched for each one. Light snacks will be served during the tasting.
