The Guardian Says…
Tasting and distilling now take place in the basement; there is a sleek cocktail bar, the Resting Room, on the ground floor; a bright G&T emporium, GinTonica, above; and three bedrooms at the top. It is London’s first gin hotel, and I couldn’t wait to check in... With 100 gins on the menu, in-room cocktails and the chance to join a three-hour tasting, don’t expect a stay at London’s first gin hotel to be hangover free.

It features some one-of-a-kind gin blends created by master distiller Jake Burger and his team. There are also distillations of other spirits, including an avocado and olive oil vodka. While we’d never thought to distill these two superfoods together, it sounds like a pretty ginius combination. The accompanying British food menu features small plates, as well as Josper grills.Read more…
