Hotham’s to open new gin school in Leeds

Hull-based Hotham’s Ltd is set to open its second gin school in Leeds next month with customers able to distil their own bottle of handcrafted gin.

Hotham’s say that visitors will learn about the history of gin and different methods of distillation, as well as being given the chance to try up to 100 different botanicals used in the process.

FDMB understands that the new venue will also offer a range of spirits produced by Hotham’s and feature an upstairs bar.

Co-founders Emma Kinton (pictured) and Simon Pownall commented: “Our Hull-based Gin School has been so popular, with groups of around 20 people joining us every Saturday, and we’ve already had a big uptake from the people of Leeds.

“We’ll now be able to offer more guests more choice, with two venues offering the same high-end experience that we’ve been delivering in Hull for the past 18 months.”
