Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works weaves the tale of jute with the life and work of old Dundee, from the incredible rise of the industry to its subsequent decline. At Scotland's Jute Museum @ Verdant Works the rattle and the roar of the orgininal restored machinery transport you back over 100 years to an era when jute was king and Dundee was its realm.

Added to that is a stunning mix of film shows, multimedia technology and hands-on interactives, making a great day out for all the family.

Victorian Late Gin school @ the Mill

  • 13 May 2016 8-10pm

It's Friday the 13th, fright night, as dark falls on the Victorian mill...

But don't fear there are no nasties here, just a whole range of tasty tipple's to help calm the nerves! An ice cool G&T will be ready and waiting for you on arrival, then our expert will guide you through a history and tasting of gin. From the days of Mother's Ruin and Dutch Courage to the present day flavours of London Dry, Old Tom's, Plymouth and Genever, with a nod to the Scottish and international small batch gins currently titillating the taste-buds of gin aficionados the world over. So whether you favour ice and slice or a Singapore Sling you'll leave with a whole new (and possibly slightly blurred) perspective on Gin.
