Differentcities around the world have always been associated with different types of spirits; Moscow has vodka, Kingston has rum and London will always be associated with gin. It’s in the DNA of the city, part of our identity and heritage.
So we were pretty excited when the first new copper distillery to open in London for over 200 years was established a couple of years ago. Sipsmith’s are an artisan gin brand, producing handcrafted small-batch spirits and now, they have partnered with luxury hotel The Langham to bring you the Sipsmith’s Gin Palace.
From 13th September, the doors will be open on a deliciously decadent den of iniquity at The Langham, just off Regent Street in the heart of the West End. Accompanied by live jazz, it promises to be a sophisticated venue with ACE cocktails and music. Palm Court, usually associated with afternoon tea, will be transformed into this opulent Gin Palace every Thursday, Friday and Saturday evening from 7pm.
The cocktail menu takes in the history of gin in London and represents a different stage in the evolution of the drink, from it’s origins in 1690, to the invention of the G&T in the late 18th century, to present day mixology. Alongside the cocktails will be a selection of tasting dishes too, so there’s no excuse for not making a full evening of it!
Opens Wed 13th Sept
