Science of the Sesh 3.0

Don your safety goggles and join us for an hour of boozy science, beautiful Scottish spirits and cocktails, and enough experiments to make you forget high school Chemistry class!

During the one hour show, running each day except Tuesdays, we'll take a look at some of the simple but fascinating science behind some of your favourite drinks, while you drink them.

You'll be greeted at the door with a Pickering's Gin and mixer, then discuss three important components of the drink in your hand and how the science of each affects your perception of flavour.

You'll then get straight into the experiments by creating your own bespoke infusion for use later, while we explore carbonation and temperature, with some audience participation thrown in! You'll then finish by shaking up your own cocktail to enjoy as we close out the tasting.

Tickets are just £16, and available through the Summerhall box office or the Fringe box office by following the links below:

Throughout August we'll be running regular Scottish spirit and chocolate pairing sessions through Airbnb Experiences.

For an hour and a half, we'll take you through the history and science of either gin or rum, while you sip on some delicious cocktails and vegan chocolate pairings.
