Cultural Evening – Gin tasting, Monday, 30 January 2023

Delegates will have the opportunity to enjoy a gin tasting presented by L-gin and canapés in the lovely gardens at the Stias Conference Centre, whilst listening to the soothing sounds of a local musician, Dorette Roos.  Dorette is a talented cellist, who plays from classical music and opera, as a member of the Cape Town Philharmonic Orchestra, to lyrical, pop and experimental genres.

L-gin will be hosting the gin tasting.  Delegates will enjoy tasting a few of the gins they produce, accompanied by different garnish that compliments each gin, with rosemary , spekboom , fennel or mint.  The facilitator will briefly discuss their gin and the flavours and why each is paired with the different garnish.
