Gin Distillery

The History

Welcome to one of London’s best kept secrets - the Beefeater Distillery in Kennington – where our gin is still hand-crafted to a recipe that is virtually unchanged since the 1800s.

London, one of the world’s great cities, has played a leading role in the development of London Dry Gin, one of the world’s great drinks. From the dawn of English gin distilling, the history of London and Beefeater Gin has been closely intertwined.

Housed in an Edwardian building with a 1950s extension, the Beefeater Distillery features original Victorian pot stills and a botanical room, where the fresh ingredients are stored. A custom-built visitor centre allows connoisseurs to see the original stills, view the distilling process and learn about the history of gin in London.
