Drink craft gins at their Shoreditch distilleries with a specialist

Hosted by Leon
Way back when at the first bar I ever tended Dos Hermanos, Leicester. This is where it all started for me in the cocktail game, I fell in love with a Tanqueray and Tonic with a load of lime. I think the first gin cocktail I drank was a Bramble though. It was the only gin cocktail on the menu I believe.
I bring you a fresh approach to a classic subject. My gin experience blends sumptuous cocktails, craft gins, banging bars, history with humour, a sleek gin carriage (your ride) and inspiring distillery visits.
Gin has got its swagger on and I'm here to tell the story… armed with a gin cocktail at the end of every chapter of course! It’s like the best history lesson you never had.
The experience is chauffeur-driven by a Mercedes minibus (no walking here). There are 5 stops, 5 cocktails and 5 samples of gin.
See you soon!

My friend organised for a group of us to attend the tour. It was so much better than I expected. A great host, great locations, great travel, great information and best of all, generous samples and cocktails.
We had a fantastic day and I have already mass recommended across my office. Make sure you don't plan anything the next day! ;)

We had an amazing afternoon with Leon. His depth of knowledge on Gin and all aspects of how to drink it was off the scale. The diversity of the bars we visited was epic and definitely good value for money! Looking forward to the Negroni tour in due course!

I bought this for a friend who is slightly gin-crazy as I thought it would be a fitting birthday present for her. We were not disappointed! Leon was our host and was very knowledgeable about all things gin. We went to 5 different bars and did gin-tasting and had a cocktail in each. I've never drunk gin straight before but it was fun to try. The cocktails were great and we had the background of each of the gins we were tasting which was really interesting. The mini bus was great, we could leave coats in there instead of dragging them into each venue and it made for a fun way to get around as there were prizes to be won along the way. I found the whole experience awesome; everyone who is there tends to love gin so there is always common ground to talk about and it was a fun group. If you're looking for something a little different and quirky to do in London I would definitely recommend this.

I brought this experience as a present for my step-dad and I to do for his birthday. I came across this and although I thought it seemed a bit pricey I read the reviews and went for it anyway. Well - it was money well spent and I would do so again!
We were welcomed into the first bar (very cool bars throughout) by a lovely guy - Leon. Leon was a truly wonderful host with a whole wealth of knowledge and witt! He kept the whole party engaged throughout and made the evening truly a 10* experience. (I wish I could give you more than 5*)
There were prizes to be won, jokes to be heard and facts to be learnt throughout. But most importantly - COPIOUS AMOUNTS OF GIN TO DRINK!
The perfect combination to make a wonderful evening.
If you do anything in London - do this. It cannot be beaten!

What an absolute treat. My 3 friends and I joined the Journey in London and we all had a fantastic time. Leon was so entertaining and definitely knew his stuff. It was a real pleasure to spend time with him, visiting new bars and tasting different gins and cocktails. I highly recommend the Gin Journey. Book it now!!
