This experience exceeded our expectations! The instructor was super knowledgeable and friendly. The space was intimate and very well decorated. We were astonished that we made some pretty great gin! We are definitely thinking about scheduling more of Ml’s classes.

I actually bought this as a wedding present for my newly married cousin and his husband. They LOVED it! “ they wrote me a thank you and sent pictures from the night. They said they learned a lot about gin and in their words, “We made some gin in a really cool space, with cool people. Thanks for such a fantastic gift! And... we get to try our own gin recipes in 3 days. My gin has cardamom, juniper, pepper and lavender.”

Joseph, it was good that you mentioned we need a sense of humor for the class. The class was actually very interesting for me as it was making gin out of all the ingredients that I already knew in daily life. Probably I will make my first bottle and send it out to you so that you can rate out your student's gin. It was also good to know that you do other classes as well. hope to see you back in your pasta class. and HAPPY BIRTHDAY. ---- From Mahitha Surapaneni

We had a fun time. Joe tells such great stories and made us feel like we were at a get together of friends. We discussed so many different things, besides making gin.
