This experience is held come rain or shine. When the weather is nice, the library doors are open, bringing the beautiful views of the green hills of Sao Miguel to the ocean beyond. For rainy days, we have comfortable seating inside.

While Portugal is better known for its port, that hasn't stopped it from producing some excellent gin. Join us as you are guided through the rich history and flavours of gin with gin expert and host here at the Solar Branco Estate, Ali Bullock.

Your gin tasting takes you through the very best gins from the Azores and Portugal as you learn about the history of gin and its modern renaissance. You will try 3 gins with selected tonics and garnishes matched for each one. Light snacks will be served during the tasting.

Guests under 15 years old are not admitted.

Ali is a leading gin connoisseur and brand ambassador for the Rocha Negra Gin brand. He has spent the last 20 years travelling the world, tasting and collecting one of the world’s largest collections of gin, on display at the Gin Library.

These travels inspired him to craft the perfect Gin & Tonic. He was the first to bring the Gin Sonic, a lower sugar variant of the G&T from Japan to Europe. He uses his extensive knowledge to host gin masterclasses on the grounds of the Solar Branco Eco Estate.

We will conduct our gin masterclass in the Gin Library, located on the grounds of The Solar Branco 1885 Eco-Estate. Perfectly located less than 10 minutes from the main city of Ponta Delgada.

The heritage house sits on top of a hill, surrounded by farmland, overlooking the quaint town of Livramento and the ocean beyond.

This was by far one of my husband’s and my favorite experiences on São Miguel. Ali is not only an endless fountain of knowledge about gin, he also makes one hell of a gin and tonic. Before this experience, my husband and I were so-so on gin, but after this, we may just start our own gin library, the drinks were that stellar! (Not to mention, we bought 3 bottles of Ali’s meticulously crafted seaweed-infused gin—yum!!) And Caroline, Ali’s wife, made us the most incredible gluten-free cheese breads that were absolutely to-die-for. Both Ali and his wife are so kind. We can’t wait to come back and stay at their eco resort when it opens. This class is a true treat and an absolute must-do!

Cannot recommend this experience with Ali enough. Ali is a gifted storyteller and has put together a gin collection you have to see to believe. Generously poured gin and tonics help, too.

Great fun gin tasting with a lovely host we were a party of 5 and were initially a little skeptical given the price but honestly it's well worth the money and recommendations and snacks provided were superb. Not to mention the adorable and very friendly animals senhor Nuna & Miguel two very cute but cheeky kittens and una the very well behaved dog. The gins were the icing on the cake they were delicious and we loved sampling your library. You changed how we'll make gins from now on. Ali and Catherine thank you for a memorable visit and some delicious gin with brilliant storytelling filled with banter!!

WOW! Must have Airbnb Experience! Very beautiful location, even better Gin and tonics. Ali is an extraordinary storyteller and host. I can't recommend this enough. Please book it before your trip. Ali will send you very helpful local tips. We already started to plan our next trip to the Azores and we definitely visit Ali's Gin Library. Thank you

What a fantastic afternoon we just had at Solar Branco, the gin tasting was amazing and Ali is such a fantastic story teller giving you the history of gin. We added 2 gins from Bermuda to his very impressive collection. We felt like we spent a fantastic afternoon with friends that we’ve known forever! Do yourselves a favor and book this experience and add on some other experiences that they also offer.
