Full description
Experience the story of gin alongside some effervescent guides whilst sampling 7 uniquely different drinks. This is a journey which will transport you from its humble beginnings hundreds of years ago, right through to the modern day craft distilleries of London. This distillery will be where your tour finishes with some more in-depth tasting of the gins they produce sustainably on site. Find out what makes gin such an important part of this capital city's rich history, tasting your way through the centuries of different styles in one afternoon. Your tour will kick off with London Bridge and the Bermondsey area, a part of the city which has been rejuvenated by a plethora of brewers, distillers, trendy restaurants and eye-catching cocktail bars built into old leather tanneries and industrial warehouses; all under the watchful eye of the instantly recognizable building, the Shard. As you venture between uniquely different venues tasting a series of mouth-watering drinks, you will see evidence of a surprising past, where old meets new. By the end of this tour, you will be able to understand how effortlessly the past and the present go side by side in the 21st century.

Nice guided tour of Jason where we taste several good gins and gindrinks. The finish at Mercato Metropolitano was a very good start to the rest of the evening.
