The London Gin Experience is an all-encompassing tour of the stalwarts of London's gin industry. As well as a tour of two of Britain's leading distillers, prepare yourself for a master class in the finest of gin drinks. Where better to start a gin tour than with the godfather of London gin: The Beefeater Distillery in Kennington. Throughout the 20th Century Beefeater was the only distillery that continued producing gin in London, this remained so until 2009. Learn about the history of gin in London and the relationship of Beefeater with the City and the rest of the world, discover the pioneering production methods, and delight in the botanicals gathered from across the globe to create this world-famous gin. Finish the tour with the perfectly served G&T. In 2009, a new brew of distillers were born, spearheaded by the trail-blazing Sipsmith Distillery. Take a trip over the water to visit Sipsmith in Chiswick and say hello to the leading lady of the Sipsmith copper pot stills, Prudence. Discover all things Sipsmith and learn about their game-changing steps in distilling laws, beginning a gin renaissance which has now gone global. After another ice-cold G&T, the team are treated to a sublime gin cocktail master class. As well as discovering the history of classic gin cocktails, we'll teach you how to master the art of cocktail production in your own home; quaffing a few concoctions along the way is, of course, mandatory. No food is provided. Capacity of the group is 15. The London Gin Experience is a Saturday day time event. It begins at 11:45 in Kennington and finishes at around 16:00 in Chiswick. The tour costs £60 and includes 2 distillery tours with guides, 1 gin cocktail masterclass with a top mixologist, 2 G&T's plus cocktails, a chauffeur drive between venues and your very own gin guardian for the day.

We discovered places and places within other places that you would never find without a tour. It started at 2 pm and finished at 7 pm and it felt like 30 minutes. Very different, very good and so much fun.
