If the way to your mum's heart is through gin, then here's a Mother's Day idea that's sure to win her over. Pint-sized CBD distillery Little Lon is marking the occasion with a gin-centric afternoon of cocktails and high tea on Sunday, May 14.

It all kicks off at 3pm with freshly-shucked oysters and bubbly, which you'll enjoy while diving into some of the history behind this little pocket of the city — as told by Barbara Minchinton (historian and author of The Women of Little Lon).

After that, you'll move onto a feast of canapés by chef Travis McAuley and his team at Curtis Stone Events, with each of the three courses matched to a different tea-infused cocktail. The sips are crafted on Little Lon's award-winning Miss Yoko gin and a range of Dilmah specialty teas.

The distillery's own Lynden Barnes and Dilmah's Anton Goss will chat guests through some of the history behind the two drops, too.

Tickets to the high tea experience come in at $150, which includes a goodie bag to take home.
