After discussing with some friends how much we love a G&T we were recommended to go on the Gin Journey. So as a present to ourselves the 4 of us booked on. We were really lucky to have The Gin Boss Leon as our guide - taking us to 5 amazing bars we would never have found and teaching us... More

I don't even particularly like gin, but bought this as a Xmas present for my girlfriend (who does like gin (quite a lot)) and we both really enjoyed this - it was a great day out around Bermondsey. Max was a great host - keeping the trip fun, sociable and educational, and the time flew by. We visited 5 bars,... More

I was given my GinJourney voucher as a gift so had no idea what to expect, so it was with a bit of trepidation that I turned up at the East London Liquor Company in Mile End on Saturday. It turned out to be a fantastic day, Leon (The Gin Boss) was an excellent host, knowledgeable and charismatic. The tour... More

Right, so we did the Christmas Masterclass mash up. This was simply amazing!! Fantastically hosted by Leon, who entertained everyone with good banter and stories. We were worried we would be the only couple amongst staff parties, but needn't have had to. We had a great time; learned some, ate more and drank lots, we where entertained the whole evening....

My son bought me the Gin Journey and came with me. We had an excellent host in Leon in Manchester and he really awakened my interest in the different tastes of the gins covered by the tastings. Each gin had its own unique flavour. Now, if I am offered a G&T, the question is "What type of gin do you... More

Staying in Spitalfields

Neighbourhood Profile
Spitalfields
For a glimpse of Georgian and Victorian London at its most pristine, or a peek into what's apt to be the next big global trend, the hipster zone of Spitalfields can provide hours of amazement. Around the clock, this is a haven for early morning bargain hunters sizing up its street markets, foodie foragers throughout the day, or late night revelers hitting some of London's most popular bars and clubs.

 Wedged between the business-minded City of London, expressly trendy Shoreditch, and zestful Whitechapel, the lines between traditional and contemporary beautifully blur in this historic East End nexus.
