Experience Gin at its finest with a Curated Gin Masterclass at Milaidhoo.

Thursday 23rd of September 2021

Engage in a guided exploration of the best Gin cocktails in the world as Milaidhoo offers guests a specially curated Gin Masterclass to celebrate the amazing alcohol that is Gin.

Gin aficionados and the curious are invited to get to know the wide variety and different tastes of Milaidhoo’s Gin selection in various cocktails, held in the exotic setting of the beach or beside the infinity pool of the Compass Pool Bar.

The Gin Masterclass is not only a taste adventure; it’s also an educational experience with the Gin master sharing details and background about the history of Gin. Guests will discover the techniques and tropical botanicals used in gin production and experience how these affect the flavor and quality of gin.

The resort’s resident Gin Connoisseur will guide guests through the process of blending their own Gin recipe, tailored to their taste preferences as well as sharing secrets on how best to present a gin cocktail.

These seven Gins popular at the Compass Pool Bar are where it begins but certainly doesn’t end:

“A Spicy G&T” is Bulldog gin, muddled with chili and lime juice.

A “T&T” is Tanqueray Gin 10 topped up with Fever-Tree tonic water and added coriander.

The “British Botanist” is based on Botanist super premium dry gin served with lemon zest, lime zest, orange zest, and homemade ice ball, topped up with premium tonic water.

“The Rose Petal” is a variation on the G&T with the addition of rose water and Hendricks’s Gin enhanced with cucumber

With strong floral flavors, the “Green Garden” has freshly sliced strawberries, the perfect accompaniment to Caorunn Gin.

A classic, yet essential, is the “Monkey’s G&T” with Monkey 47 Gin, served with grapefruit zest, orange zest, and grapefruit segment.

“The New York G&T is Brooklyn Gin accompanied with basil and an olive.

Guests participating in the Gin Masterclass can create their own Gin cocktail which, if guests like it, could become part of the Compass Pool Bar Menu.

The Gin Masterclass is the latest addition to Milaidhoo’s food and beverage offering, which includes private cooking classes and workshops at the chef’s table, Wine and Cheese tastings with the resident Sommelier, Shushi Making Classes, and local food tastings menus.
