Our NEW Urban Distillery Experience at the Canberra Region Visitors Centre this summer
The Urban Distillery Experience ran from Dec 2020 - Jan 2021 and is now closed for the season. To stay up to date with when we’ll be back, join our mailing list or if you’d like Underground to pop up at your event drop us a note via our contact page and we’ll be in touch.
In a first for Underground Spirits, and indeed any distillery in the Canberra region, we are proud to announce we are now offering Canberra’s first ever lakeside gin experience this summer.
Our new Underground Spirits Urban Distillery Experience takes place at the Canberra Region Visitors Centre on the edge of Lake Burley Griffin during summer 2020/21.
This is a specialty tasting bar collaboration, offering Canberrans and visitors alike the chance to take part in one (or perhaps even two!) of two small group immersive gin masterclasses featuring our award-winning premium spirits range, with unsurpassed views of Lake Burley Griffin and Canberra’s major attractions in the summer sunshine.
Our masterclasses take place in a beautiful setting adorned with Australian florals and botanicals, our special Instagrammable spot, a beautifully illustrated mural explaining our gin making process, with a seated area to enjoy your tasting experience. You will be guided by Underground’s experienced staff and mixologists.
Two unique Urban Distillery Experiences are on offer:
The Spirit of Canberra – Underground Spirits Experience
45 minutes. Two sessions per day.
An immersive experience to share Underground Spirits’ history in Canberra, the history of gin, production processes and botanicals. The journey continues as we explore the history of the G&T and how to make the perfect G&T.
