The NAVYÄRD are delighted to introduce their first Gin Masterclass on Thursday 22nd September at 5.30pm.  The masterclass will be run by Zane, brand ambassador for Hayman’s Gin.  Haymans is very much our ‘local’ distillery based in Witham, Essex and have been making award-winning gin for over 150 years making them the only family of original English gin makers still distilling today.  Zane knows everything there is to know about the Hayman’s brand, distillery and products and will explain the journey of the gin from the selecting the finest botanicals through to the actual distilling.

The Masterclass will take place in the Saloon at The Pier and starts at 5.30pm with a Hayman’s cocktail and will last for approximately 1.5 hours and conclude with a post-class cocktail.  Tickets are £15 (to include the Masterclass and 2 cocktails) and available from the NAVYÄRD or call The Pier on 01255 241212.
