IVERPOOL Gin is to open a new distillery, complete with two bars, a Gin Lab and a Bartender School on Castle Street.
LThe PS1m development, owned by Halewood Wines & Spirits, will enable gin fans to learn how to make the spirit themselves in a specially designed Gin Lab.
Visitors will be able to choose their own botanicals and distil their own bespoke gin to take home.
Guests will also be able to see Liverpool Gin being made, in a 600-litre working copper still which will be on display on the ground floor.
A premium gin and spirits bar will also be on the ground floor, with a further premium dark spirits bar at basement level. Both bars will serve food Lee Tayburn, operations director at Halewood Wines & Spirits, says: "Liverpool Gin is one the city's most well-loved brands and the new distillery, right in the heart of Liverpool's bustling food and drink hub, will provide an accessible interactive experience which will appeal to both locals and visitors alike."
And for budding bartenders, there will be the opportunity to train with the Liverpool Gin Bartender School, which will be housed on the second floor of the distillery building.
