The Underground Gin Experience

Learn about the origins of gin, the distillation process and how to make the perfect gin and tonic



1 hour Class size 6 to 12     label $55


Brand ambassador and resident mixologist Colombine Courouble (Collie) of Canberra-based distillery Underground Spirits, will be coming into POP to give you the real-deal gin experience!

In this class, Collie will discuss the history of the distillery, what botanicals go into the Underground Spirits' gins and the role they play in balancing the flavours. She will also give you an introduction into the distillation process and a general history of the origins of gin.

You will have the chance to taste Underground Spirits’ four gins – Signature Gin, Shiraz and Tasmanian Pepperberries Gin, Ad Crescendum Native Gin and Floriade ReImaGINed Gin. Then receive a masterclass on how to make the perfect G&T. Learn how to select the garnish and tonic according to the taste of the gin.

You will then get to make (and drink!) your favourite Gin and Tonic.

POP Canberra stocks a range of Underground Spirits gin, so if you like what you try, you can buy direct from us on the night. Or pre-order your fave gin with us when you buy your ticket.



Aside from this experience, POP Canberra also has the following coming up:

We are Underground Spirits, an award-winning local distillery in Canberra. We use a specific patented cryofiltration process which enables us to produce gins & vodkas of the highest quality, clean, pure and tasty! As a Canberra business, we love collaborating with others to create our liquid magic – as we have this year with Floriade and the Australian National Botanic Gardens.

As a brand ambassador & resident mixologist for Underground Spirits, I (Collie) have been running workshops, tastings & masterclasses for the past 2 years, sharing my passion for our #SpiritofCanberra and the process of what goes behind our gins.
