This Saturday is officially World Gin Day, and to celebrate, we’ve rounded up the nine best places providing a legitimate excuse (not that we ever need one) to mix up a cocktail and learn all about the exceptional gins that are currently on the market.
From expert distilleries to underground drinking dens, make these your next stop off for a tipple – bottoms up!
Tucked away at the end of Bermondsey Street underneath Antico Restaurant, 214 Bermondsey is an intimate and friendly bar that serves over 80 different varieties of gin and even makes its very own handcrafted Tonic Water that can be mixed into cocktails as you like.
City of London Distillery
Take part in a tour at The City of London Distillery to learn about the history of one the nation’s favourite spirits, then sample some of their bottles at the speakeasy-style retro cocktail bar that overlooks striking copper stills. An Instagram-worthy opportunity if ever we saw one.
For some old-school glamour it doesn’t get better than The Coburg Bar at The Connaught, Mayfair. Choose from their range of premium gin brands including Tanqueray 10, Beefeater 24, Ketel One and Snow Queen and have them mix it into a classic Martini. Shaken or stirred? It’s up to you...
