All our tastings can be booked directly via the “Book Now” buttons below, and take place in the Cambridge Gin Laboratory on Green Street in central Cambridge. They have a maximum of 6-8 visitors for each tasting, but should you be interested in visiting us with a larger group – or want an exclusive tasting for a small group only – please see the Group Bookings page or contact us.

To view availability for tastings in the next 3-4 months, click “Book Now” below and fill in the number of people you want to see availability for. A new month of dates are added on the 1st three months ahead – for example, the full month of July will be added on April 1st.
In the booking calendar, green dates have good availability, yellow dates limited availability and red dates are fully booked. If you would like to be put on a wait list and contacted in case of a cancellation, please contact us on info@cambridgeginlab.co.uk .

If you are giving a tasting as a gift to someone else, choose the gift voucher option on the booking page and please read the gift voucher info below. If you are redeeming a gift voucher, please be sure to read the info below before booking.

Information About Purchasing and Redeeming Gift Vouchers

All our three tastings can be purchased as a gift voucher, which can later be redeemed into a ticket for a specific date.

If you are purchasing a gift voucher, simply click the gift voucher option when purchasing the ticket via the Book Now button below. You will receive a PDF voucher including a voucher code, to be used for redeeming the voucher into a place on a tasting. It does not matter which name the voucher is purchased in, but if you would like the recipients name to feature on the voucher you need to fill in their name under “Full name” when booking. All information such as confirmation and reminder will go to the email the voucher was booked with. Please make sure the recipient of the voucher has the voucher code and the information to redeem it on our website under Gin Tastings. You will have the option of receiving a Gin Lab card should you want something nicer than the PDF to give as a present – details on that option will follow as part of your confirmation email.

If you have a gift voucher to redeem, simply click Book Now on the relevant tasting below and fill in your voucher code to see the available dates for the relevant of people. The voucher code will not be used until you confirm the date, so you can have a look at the calendar without redeeming the voucher code.
In the booking calendar, green dates have good availability, yellow dates limited availability and red dates are fully booked. If you would like to be put on a wait list and contacted in case of a cancellation for a specific date, please contact us on info@cambridgeginlab.co.uk .

The voucher code is valid 6 months from the date of purchase – meaning that the act of booking needs to happen within 6 months, but the tasting can happen later. Available dates are visible 3-4 months ahead and new dates are added continuously, one calendar month at a time, on the 1st of every month. Tastings tend to book up around one month in advance, but this varies depending on type of tasting.

If you want to add more people than the voucher is valid for, you need to make two bookings – one redeeming the voucher, and one purchase of new tickets for the same date. To ensure availability for everyone on the same date, we recommend you to check the availability for your total number of people first. Example of four people in total, two of which are on a voucher: Click Book Now, fill in four people, find a date with sufficient availability. Go back, fill in the voucher code and redeem it for two people. Go back and buy the remaining two tickets for the same date.

All tastings include a Gin & Tonic at arrival, tasting a number of gins neat, as well as a cocktail from the exclusive gin menu of the 2648 cocktail bar next door to be enjoyed after the tasting. The exception to this is Balancing Botanicals, where you will end the session with tasting your own gin.
