The Best Gin Tasting and Gin Experiences in Berkshire 2024

If you’re a gin fan then gin tasting is such a great activity for a night out or special occasion. You can order a premium gin flight at many bars that come with tasting notes or you can join organised gin tasting experiences where you taste gins as a group whilst being guided through them with a knowledgeable host.

I thought it would be good to put together all the places you can experience gin tasting in Berkshire along with Berkshire distillery tours – with many that also include gin tasting sessions – and also gin cocktail making workshops and other gin tours and gin experiences Berkshire.
