Create your own gin
A unique opportunity to blend your own craft gin under the expert guidance of renowned Fenton Street distiller Stuart Green. After riding to a colourful taxidermist’s studio on the Arrow River Bridges trail, Stuart will guide your nose and palate through a gin tasting session, while he regales you with the tales that made Fenton Street an award-winning distillery.
Then it’s time to make your own gin by selecting from a range of botanicals, then blending them into your very own exclusive gin. Once it’s bottled and labelled, it’s ready for you to take home.
Afterwards choose the short or long ride back to Arrowtown for a Negroni or special G&T at the famous Blue Door bar.
The ride includes the craft gin session, a tasty sandwich, your small bottle of gin and the cocktail back in Arrowtown.
Riders depart Arrowtown at 10.30am, midday and 1.30pm on both the Saturday and the Sunday, returning 3 to 5 hours later, depending on chosen route.
The trail is a grade 2, covering easy, undulating terrain. The short ride distance is 15 kms while the longer ride can be up to 30 kms, with most distance being covered after the gin crafting session. If you fancy the longer ride back along the grade 3 Twin Rivers trail, we recommend you book the 10.30am ride to ensure you are back at the Blue Door in time for your celebratory cocktail.
