Well folks, this is money well spent. This was a brilliant night and being our first time at the Ginstitute we were not disappointed! Someone had clearly researched carefully all the drinks and dinner. Word to the wise....you should probably eat a bit before you...More

Brilliant gin tour . An hour of gin history over a couple of cocktails , followed by an hour of botanical tasting (over more cocktails) with the result being our own 75cl bottle to take away.
This is a pricier option than the Bombay sapphire...More
What a great experience. Left the place after 3 hours of informative, entertaining and well delivered gin history and blending instructions. The time flew by, but then given that we had about 8 double gins I am not surprised. Will be taking my team there...More
As West London's friskiest corner, Notting Hill more than manages to retain plenty of the same appeal that's brought the affluent area so much worldwide attention. In this attractive cobblestoned neighborhood, a delectable variety of eateries, independent shops, galleries and street vendors offer a delightful window into how to live the good life in London, with each presenting visitors with an
experience that's a little more idiosyncratic and endearing than the last. Travelers looking to forage for antiques should be sure to visit the Portobello Road Market on Saturdays, the largest antiques market in the United Kingdom.

Each guest tastes 17 botanicals, and out of this you're advised to choose 6 (I think) - one dry, one spicy, one sweet and three others. Your own bottle of gin is made from these, but before sealing the bottle everyone gets to taste each other's, so that if someone's come up with a particular blend that you like, you can order a bottle of their blend.
Everyone in the room agreed that they preferred mine - which I'm sure was pure luck - but if you want to try it, be my guest. You can order a bottle of no. 29091. #
You leave with an individual bottle of your own concoction, plus a bottle of Portobello Gin. So my wife and I left with four bottles
