Never Never Distilling Co. have launched a new Premium Gin Masterclass at their McLaren Vale Distillery Door.
After opening their doors in March 2020 before having to close them just five weeks later due to COVID, Never Never had always planned to expand their venue offering beyond the simple self-guided tasting flights and delicious cocktails.
“Developing the premium masterclass was always really important to us,” says Distillery Door General Manager, Kate Rowlands.
“Sean, George and Tim have done an incredible job building the brand, so this experience offers guests the opportunity to go behind the scenes of Never Never and discover what it takes to produce Australia’s most highly-awarded gin.”
The Never Never Premium Gin Masterclass Experience includes a fully guided tour and tasting experience hosted by one of their in-house gin experts. Guests receive a welcome G&T on arrival that they can sip as they’re given a brief tour from the expansive lawns, while taking in the views of McLaren Vale’s rolling vineyards.
From there, guests are taken behind the scenes of the Never Never production facility before a seated session where they’re told the history of Never Never and how they create their range of gins.
Finally, an intimate and detailed tasting of Never Never’s core range of products, sample a seasonal release and indulge in a cocktail of their choice made by Never Never’s skilled bar team.
Included in the ticket price, guests will take home an exclusive Never Never Distilling Co. gift bag worth $70, which includes a 200 ml bottle of Never Never Gin, premium Fever Tree Tonic, Cocktail Onions and a magnet pack from local artist Billie Justice Thomson.
With borders set to reopen, Never Never are excited to once again be able to host interstate guests to showcase their award-winning wins and share the Never Never story.
Christmas is just around the corner, so if you’re looking for a gift for friends or family you can also purchase a Masterclass Experience Gift Card via the same booking portal on their website.
Never Never’s latest release, Dark Series Oyster Shell Gin is proving to be an incredibly popular choice at the venue, with a fresh Summer cocktail menu now available.
