To celebrate Gin, Milaidhoo offers guests a curated Gin Masterclass. It’s a guided exploration of the best Gin cocktails in the world.

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 flavour and quality of gin.
