Spirits School

The perfect event for you and your friends, work mates or colleagues to experience all things botanical. Under our guidance you will distil your own botanical spirit, bottle and label it before taking it home.

Throughout the day you’ll be transported through the history and art of distilling.  You will even get an insight into Scotland’s first absinthe. Immerse yourself in the taste and smell of the botanicals whilst we guide you through which botanicals complement each other and what ratios to stick to.

Using one of our 5 litre alembic stills and with a large botanical library at your disposal, try your hand at creating a gin, botanical spirit or perhaps even an absinthe. We can assist but the final recipe comes down to you – let your inner distiller loose and wow your friends when you take home a bottle of your own creation.

The Spirit School experience is a minimum of 5 people. However, if you fancy coming along alone or with a friend (ie. booking less than 5 people), you can purchase a gift voucher and we’ll pair you up with a group of lovelies at a suitable date.

  • £100.00 per person for group bookings of 7 or over
  • £115.00 per person for group bookings of 5 or 6

Lost Loch Spirits Ltd 2020

Lost Loch Spirits is still open for business but for online orders only.

We'd like to thank all of our customers for their continued support during this uncertain time. Each order makes a huge difference and will help our wee business survive, which means we'll still be here to produce your favourite spirits once this is all over. For now, though we need to close the distillery doors, which sadly means, no visitors, tour & tastings or spirits school experiences can run. If you have something booked with us, we'll be in touch.
Otherwise, we can't wait to see you once this is all over - thank you for your continued support.

In the meantime - follow us on social & stay in touch.

Love, Team Lost Loch
