World Gin Day: Is this the ultimate home gin tasting experience?

It's World Gin Day, and we know you know your gin. You've been reading up on our best gin list for a start. But if you fancy learning a little bit more about the juniper juice, UK supermarket Waitrose is offering a gin-tasting experience you can have in your living room.

Called, unsurprisingly, Gin O'Clock, Waitrose is offering a two-hour session for you and your friends. The session will include a number of gins to taste, all paired with Fever Tree tonic.

You'll be sipping all this from a Fever Tree Dartington crystal glass, which you will get to keep afterwards.

The sessions are a pretty hefty £400 but the idea is that you get 10 mates around (it's for six to 10 people) and split the cost to £40 a piece.

The masterclass will also go through the history of gin, the botanics behind it, and you'll initially be tasting the gins straight so you can understand the flavours obviously and nothing to do with getting drunk quicker.

Head to Waitrose to find out more.
