Gin fans - Waitrose & Partners has launched a new service that you're just going to love

'Gin O' Clock' is a two hour experience which is led by one of the retailer's specialists and means that you and your friends can enjoy five different gins from the comfort of your own home.

Tastings include a pink pepper and sloe gin and will also take you through the history of gin, while showing you how to create the perfect blend of botanicals with a pestle and mortar.

To allow you to fully appreciate the aromas, you will be served the gins straight initially, before having a splash of tonic added. After the tasting has finished, you can keep the remaining gin, and everyone will also receive their own Fever-Tree Dartington crystal glass.

The service is available for pre-booking now, and is priced at £400, for between 6-10 people.

Andrew Riding, Drinks Experience Manager at Waitrose Wine Tasting at Home, said: "From knowing how much ice to use, to which glass choice is best, our experience will help hone your gin and tonic making skills. Britain is having a great love affair with gin at the moment and we are excited to either teach fans more about their favourite drink or introduce the world of gin to newcomers".

If gin isn't your drink of choice, there's also the Waitrose Wine Tasting at home offer, which includes both wines and sparkling wine experiences. The newly launched 'Fizz Fancy' (£50 per person) features prosecco, cava, crémant, English sparkling wine and champagne, and is perfect for fans of bubbles - the standard wine experience starts at £30 per person.
