London's giant gin distillery will open next month - and you can stay the night in it

We used to think London was pretty well serviced when it came to amazing food and drinks ventures. From colourful rainbow bagels to Nutella toasties and an upcoming water-only cocktail bar, we thought the capital had us covered.

Until now.

Earlier this year, the infamous Portobello Road Gin announced plans to open a giant, four-floor gin distillery that visitors can actually sleep in, jam-packed with all kinds of features sure to whet the appetite of gin fans across the world.

Now, the company has announced their much-anticipated gin mecca, called The Distillery, will be opening its doors to the public on 16th December – just in time for a boozy Christmas.

Housing a traditional gin bar, a gin museum, a specialist shop, a 'Gintonica' Spanish-themed restaurant, a real-life distillery and three boutique hotel rooms, this will be London's first ever distillery that guests can spend the night in.

It will even be the home of Portobello Road Gin's "Ginstitute", a gloriously gin-centric experience that gives guests the opportunity to blend their own gins and make unique cocktails.

The distillery-slash-hotel will be based on London’s infamous Portobello Road, and gin fanatics should book ahead to avoid disappointment.

“We already have bookings from across Europe and even as far afield as South Africa,” Ged Feltham, the founder of Portobello Road Gin and The Distillery, revealed in a statement. “The positive response to the project so far has been overwhelming.”

You can get ahead of the queue by heading to The Distillery’s website here.
