Then comes the hands on experience where you get to infuse gin with individual jars for each person, that you get to take away at the end of the session.

The Memsahib Distillery

Coming Soon

Since opening, the Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar has become well known for its array of international and in-house crafted gins. Research and innovation in the food and beverage industry is at the heart of our values, with that being said, we’re adding a gin micro-distillery to the Memsahib Gin and Tea Bar.

We will be distilling our very own Memsahib Gin, from spiced infused dry gin to fruitful flavoured gins we are all familiar with. Naturally, the Memsahib micro-distillery will add to our assortment of gins from around the world that our guests have come to love.

The Memsahib micro-distillery will also provide the backdrop for exciting gin distillation and infusion classes/tastings for guests who appreciate the art. Further still, reservations for private events and team building exercises can be made.

The Memsahib micro-distillery will be open to guests later this year! We look forward to welcoming you soon.
