Gin School

Want to be a master mixologist?

WhataHoot is delighted to partner with expert mixologist Matthew Barton and his team at Best@Bars to bring you the best cocktail experience Norfolk has to offer!

Relax in the luxury surroundings of the bespoke WhataHoot Gin School and Spirit Lounge whilst you learn the history of cocktails, before experimenting with our extensive range of spirits, liquors, mixers, juices and ingredients to create your own unique cocktail.

Our fun-filled cocktail masterclasses are both entertaining and educational and are available for groups of 10 or more – ideal for hen or stag do’s, birthdays and Christmas parties, team building or corporate away days.

All of our classes include our established range of classic cocktails but if you have a favourite tipple we can customise the class to suit you. We also have a wide selection of tasty mocktails for those who prefer not to drink alcohol.


Visit us in the heart of historic King’s Lynn to explore the magic of gin making at the WhataHoot Gin School.

Learn the step-by-step process of how gin is distilled and discover how botanicals give each gin its own distinct flavour, before experimenting with your own flavours and embarking on distilling your own gin!
