Did you miss out on your annual regional getaway this winter? Do you feel like you need a little bit of the nourishing country life to get you through the next few weeks of lockdown? If that's you, and you're a gin lover to boot, we've got a lil' something that'll fill up your empty mini break cup — in more ways than one.

You can experience the high country at home thanks to our pals at Glenbosch Wine Estate. Across two weeks starting September 17, you and your mates can attend an online rooibos gin tasting session with Dirk Bester from the Beechworth-based estate. The 90-minute session will include a guided tasting of four delicious gins. Plus, you'll learn how to make your own bathtub gin just like it was done in the prohibition era.

To make sure you've got the right tools for the job, Glenbosch Wine Estate will send you a supply pack boasting 500ml of Glenbosch Craft Original Gin, a botanical wheel and tasting quadrant, a botanical box featuring eight botanicals, citrus and more. All you need to round up are a few household items including a cutting board, knife, glasses, tonic water, ice and tea strainer.

Gin Appreciation with Glenbosch will take place at 7pm September 17, September 24 and October 1. Sound like a genius way to level up your next after-work drinks? For more information and to book, visit the website
