Cairns Cocktail Masterclass & Beer Tasting

Cairns Cocktail Masterclass

Cairns Cocktail Masterclass & tropical gin tasting

Join us on a fun interactive tasting adventure exploring the flavours of Far North Queensland with a Cairns Cocktail Masterclass and a guided gin and craft beer tasting. Visit two local venues, a microbrewery and gin distillery located in the heart of Cairns, with food and drinks included on this private tasting tour.

Start the day with a guided gin tasting, where you will learn about your key ingredients, followed by a 2-hour, interactive gin cocktail masterclass under the guidance of the expert bartender at the local Cairns distillery. You will learn how the the distillery started, their award-winning gins and then get step-by-step instruction on how to make your own gin cocktails. Best of all, you then get to enjoy the results of your hard work.

Explore a funky range of craft beers

After shaking up a storm your adventure continues to a local microbrewery where you will enjoy a craft beer tasting and lunch with a view. Hear about the different styles of beer, how the biggest brewery in Cairns came about and a bit about the beer making process at Hemingways Brewery. It’s a tough choice, but you now have to choose your paddle consisting of five beer samples from the tap range.
