Step away from those bathbombs, dear reader and kick that eye palette of 49 shades your bestie will never use and one that they might to the curb – we’ve found the perfect Christmas gift for 2017.

Born from a desire to unearth and invigorate Camden Lock’s gin history, Half Hitch’s micro-distillery was created in the North of London. Their signature gin is zesty with a hint of festive cinnamon and makes a mean G&T but that’s not all…

Until the end of February Half Hitch are running their Gin School & Bespoke Gin-Making class mid-week for only £60 a head, making it an excellent choice for that pesky friend who always seems to have everything (yes, we hate them a bit too) or as an investment of your Christmas money from extended family.

During the 1 hour gin exploration you’ll taste and learn all about gin before being let loose to make your own gin in pairs with ingredients you handpicked. You’ll leave with good spirits (hah!), 100 ml of your own gin and 100ml of Half Hitch.

Half Hitch Distillery, Unit 53 West Yard, Camden Lock Place, London NW1 8AF

Price (£60 per person) includes tastings, 100ml of your gin, 100ml of Half Hitch Gin.


Living on the sunny Kent coast you'll find Anna tracking down the best new coffee shops and craft beer dens. With a penchant for vintage, she's more likely to be exploring thrift stores than Bond Street but she'll never say no to a little touch of creative luxury.
