Gin school raises glass to success at VisitEngland awards

18th Aug

The Hull-based attraction offers a luxury gin-making experience, taking guests on a journey through the history of their favourite tipple, while learning all about the art of distillation. With expert help from Hotham’s distiller, guests distil a full-sized bottle of gin to take away with them, while enjoying Hotham’s gins, distilled on-site.
Simon Pownall, who set up the business in 2018 with his partner, Emma Kinton, said: “This is the icing on the cake for us, having been named Yorkshire’s Experience of the Year in the 2019 White Rose Awards, and having received multiple awards for our gin over the past two years.
“We pride ourselves on giving guests an experience they’ll never forget, and we’re so thrilled to be representing Hull and Yorkshire both in our industry and in awards like these.”
