In the short time since it was established (becoming the first copper-pot

distiller to open in London for almost two centuries), Sipsmith has built

a reputation for the quality of its alcoholic spirits, which include several

gins and vodkas. On their distillery tour (£25), you’ll learn about London’s

history of gin and Sipsmith’s role in the tipple’s recent renaissance, drink in

hand. You’ll end with a tutored tasting of the Sipsmith range.
