Calling all gin lovers, we have the ideal thing to do at home that will awaken your tastebuds. Learn how to make your own gin from steeping and infusing spices in vodka in this online class.

We have two different versions of this class depending on what you want to do. In the pre-infusion class, you will be blending and picking out spices by yourself and leaving them to steep in vodka for three days before your class begins. Then, in the gin crafting class itself, you will learn how to filter the saturated vodka into gin with help from a friendly teacher. This class is listed as the filtering class.

In the second variation of this online class, your friendly teacher will guide you through the infusion process and help you blend spices of your choice to make a flavorful and earthy gin. You will then have to wait three days to filter as the vodka transforms into gin. This class is listed as the infusion class.

Both classes will then learn how to make cocktails using gin. The filtering class using their own homemade gin, and the infusion class using storebought. You'll be shaking up two drinks, a Martini and gin fizz.

If you need unique ideas for a birthday party or gift experience, this virtual gin experience is sure to get the celebrations going. It's a great way to explore a beverage you love and personalize it to your tastes. We send out handy craft kits to everyone to help you craft your spirit.

High Desert Botanicals is a small shop founded by Janel Johnson and Reese Tietje that makes cocktail bitters. When they began their journey they had no luck finding ingredients like milk thistle seeds and burdock root at their local supermarkets and could only buy in bulk from wholesale companies online.

They considered there might be others out there who want to experiment with the fun of making their own cocktail ingredients but also would struggle to find smaller batches of tricky botanicals. So, they decided to sell kits and put on classes to make this fun activity accessible to all.

Join Janel and Reese as they share the joy of making tonics, gin, vermouth, and more! Use them in refreshing cocktails and take your tastebuds on an amazing journey using ingredients you never dreamed you could make at home!
