About the event

We are excited to be working in partnership with Puddingstone Distillery to produce a very special gin, infused with the edible flower of the invasive Himalayan balsam plant, which will be removed by volunteers from our reserves this summer.

Take an early evening stroll along the edge of Wilstone Reservoir, discovering this beautiful nature reserve with your knowledgeable guide, looking out for wildfowl on the water and around the margins.  

Then return to the nearby Puddingstone Distillery for a fascinating talk from their Director, Ben, who will give an insight into the history of gin and how the special Himalayan balsam gin is made.  The evening wouldn't be complete without trying a couple of delicious cocktails from the gin menu along with some samples.  This event is truly a "wild" gin tasting!

Proceeds from this event will go towards supporting the work of Herts and Middlesex Wildlife Trust.

This event can be purchased as an experience gift voucher from our Wildlife Gift Shop.
