Sitting in the heart of Bankside, The Distillery is located on the site of the old Stevenson & Howell fragrance factory, which distilled essential oils and manufactured essences, flavourings and garnishes during the 1800s. Inspired by this local history, the bar has become an alchemist’s laboratory of sensations mixing signature cocktails using homemade aromatics, infusions and bitters to accent drinks. The Distillery bar also specialises in craft beers and stocks over 50 hand-picked gins, from fine old classics from every point of the compass, to new age gins from artisan distilleries springing up all over Bankside, Southwark and Bermondsey.
Whatever the occasion, The Distillery offers a vibrant and modern location for your event with its cosy booths, plush sofas, poseur tables and high benches. The outside terrace, which can be hired on its own or in conjunction with the inside space, is a semi-covered space which is ideal for an alfresco drinks reception.
