Hidden within our secret workshop and tucked away from the courtyard in Summerhall you will find The Speakeasy Experience. Give the secret password on the door and our bartender will welcome you into the forbidden cocktail bar masked as a distillery workshop. Guests will enjoy a table-service cocktail experience, whilst learning about the illicit establishments that thrived during the 1920s prohibition. You will be served two cocktails typical from the prohibition-era made with Pickering's Gin and The Broody Hen Scotch Whisky.
