GIN SCHOOL FAQs

The way we run our sessions at the gin school will look slightly different. We will only be running Two sessions a day to allow for a thorough clean down between classes. These sessions will be at 11:30am and 15:30 and may take longer than the normal hour and a half. We are also limiting the capacity of the gin school to three stills which is max 6 people, this will make it safer for our staff and clients.

We will also only be opening for four days of the week, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday. (Plus Some Wednesdays from 19th Aug)

The weekends (& Fridays) are usually PEAK days, however, we will do our best to accommodate existing customers, with off-peak vouchers & bookings, within these days. We hope to open up more weekday sessions in time and any new purchases of off-peak vouchers will only be valid for the available off-peak sessions.

We really appreciate all your support throughout these unprecedented times and look forward to seeing you in the Gin School soon.

We are located at The Shops at Dartington, TQ9 6TQ. Please note that we have moved and you can now find us near the cafe / kitchen shop. 

The sessions used to last for an hour and a half but we expect them to be longer now with our new measures in place. We are asking that anyone who is showing symptoms of Covid 19 to reschedule and not attend the gin school.

 We ask that customers try and arrive 5 minutes before their session and that if they look under 25 that they bring ID. Please note that if you are more than 15 mins late for your session we may not be able to accommodate you. Please also note that we accept amendments to bookings up to 7 days prior to the scheduled date. After this if you wish to amend your booking it may be subject to availability and an administration fee. 

We are also limiting the amount of times a booking can be amended, to three times before an administration fee is required. (the current situation is being taken into consideration with this)

 Our Covid Measures

We have halved the capacity in the gin school and all our staff  are wearing face coverings or face shields throughout the gin school.

We are doing thorough clean downs of the gin school before and after the sessions. You are not required to wear a face covering during the session but we would advice you to wear one on entering and only take it off once everyone is seated. However if you wish to wear a mask throughout the session you are very welcome to.
