Dating way back to the 19th century, Beefeater Gin is one of London’s most iconic brands. Forget the stuff of Mother’s Ruin; this is a delectable dry gin that’s firmly top shelf quality. Housed in Kennington since 1953, the Beefeater Distillery tour is part process and part history lesson. Yes, you’ll find out about the bold botanicals that influence every bottle but you’ll also take away a slice of social history, a study of the relationship between gin, London and its people.
The tour costs £12 for adults (children go free, which is great news for all those young gin fans) and includes tastings and guided walk through the cathedral-like distillery.
