In the 18th century, a certain tipple became so popular that the government resorted to passing the Gin Act to restrict its sale. Happily, today we are free to enjoy the juniper tones of this refreshing spirit -- cue today's deal from G & Teatime: £29 for a 1½-hour tutored gin-tasting class, with afternoon tea and a gin-based cocktail to finish (a £75 value). For £56, take a friend along too (a £150 value). Take your pick from a range of dates, don your glad rags, and head down to the honorary gin palace at either 28 Queen Street or Lock 25 at 1 p.m. or 3.30 p.m. and enjoy six gin samples, including neat gins, a gin and tonic, and the perfect Dry Martini. Then, sip a 'G & Teatime' cocktail and tuck into a selection of afternoon tea treats. Locations are also available across the UK. Today's hot (toddy) deal is perfect for warming up the cold autumn days.
