Full description
Gin is the ‘new Champagne’ and this tour is the perfect way to discover all things gin on a guided walking tour of London. Weave through the backstreets, alleyways, and grand thoroughfares to visit 4 of the great London Gin Palaces. Enjoy a venue-to-venue talk with a London historian. Gin, or ‘Mother’s Ruin’ has long been the preferred tipple of the capital since the early 1700s. Follow your guide to see some of the finest examples of Victorian Gin palaces to survive the Blitz and 1960’s property developers. There were 7,000 ‘dram shops’ in London in 1750 but not so many today. However, the quality is better than ever before. There are micro-distilleries opening up everywhere. Get a highlight of the best original ‘Palaces’. Visit the City of London Distillery at the end of the tour.
