How to make a bottle of gin

What is the best way of spending Saturday with your wife when she is 6 months pregnant. Take her to a gin distillery of course! I am only jesting. The truth is that Becky got this gin experience at 45 West Distillers as a present quite a long time ago. We almost forgot about it and when we found the voucher it was almost expired.
