Gin Foraging Experience For Two

Ever fancied creating your own gin? Indulge in a truly unique experience, guaranteed to lift your spirits.

Explore the beautiful surroundings and woodland of Hatfield Park with your loved one to forage botanicals and create your very own gin. Throughout the experience, learn about the origins of gin and the distilling process with your guide and expert from Spirit of Hertfordshire. Enjoy a delicious lunch at the Coach House Kitchen, whilst your park-foraged botanicals are distilled and finally, finish the day with a tasting of your efforts and receive your very own 20cl personalised bottle of gin to take home.


“We want every gin to distill the spirit and history of the place which inspired it.” With Spirit of Hertfordshire, each wild botanical is chosen both for the story it tells and the flavour it brings.

With gin-making, Richard Daniel has allowed an early-retirement hobby to become an all-consuming passion and second career. He even rebuilt and refurbished their historical Victorian stable building by hand.

Resident forager Richard Osmond gathers many botanicals from the hedgerows and ancient woodlands which surround the distillery. Their gins showcase the amazing flavour potential of these ingredients in all kinds of traditional and experimental ways.
