Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    I went with a group of friends for the drag bingo night and it was fantastic fun! The team were all super friendly and welcoming, and the drinks and nibbles on offer were great. Would highly recommend it for a night out with friends!

    Sign Up for this experience! You learn a lot about gin and its history. You drink a lot. You get creative and create something that appeals to your palate. You walk away (or maybe stumble away) with a full bottle and some other goodies. Hands down it was one of the most fun activities I did on a recent visit to London.

    Our leader was Carmen. She was terrific. Knowledgeable about gin and its history. Knowledgeable about how what you put into your bottle will taste together. Answered all of our questions. Gave us lots to sample. In the end we had three full cocktails made for us and a couple of tastes of some of their other gins (like the butter gin) before we got to the tasting of the flavors (the big four plus bold, citrus, spice, and dry). The final tasting was ours...neat and then with some tonic.

    Truly a very fun experience. Make sure that you have had a good lunch before hand....and maybe bring along some savory sponges (snacks to sop up the alcohol). We did this on a Sunday, so a proper Sunday Pub Roast was key to our success.

    8 generations distilling from the family Neill, the experience today was just one to remember. We have learnt a lot about specifications of London Dry quality gin and also in the lab, made our own guided by an impeccable classy gentleman like Harvey! Thank you also Brooke and Winston for being very special hosts, would recommend this experience for everyone, beginner to expert level , ti learn something new while having fun

    I would thoroughly recommend this experience at Hayman’s Distillery. A lovely welcome by Callum on entry, then a delicious Gin & Tonic while we waited for the group to gather. Alexandra gave an excellent history of gin coming to London and how the Hayman family became involved and got to where they are today. Learning about the botanicals and getting to blend some ourselves was fascinating and her explanation of each one was extremely interesting. Being introduced to the lady stills and how they work again, delightful and both Alexandra and Callum made the tasting interesting and fun. A pleasure to spend the evening with two people who love their work and who are proud of the company they work for. Hayman should be proud to have them in their company. A great time was had by all. THANK YOU

    It's not the most promising setting you've ever seen for a whisky tour, but it's a must for London whisky fans. Luke was a great host, entertaining and very knowledgeable, generous with time and whisky. Probably the most fun you can have in a warehouse in Park Royal.

    My wife and I (a non-gin drinker) spent a few hours at Jensen's on a Saturday afternoon in the company of the highly informative and amusing Charlie. The time flew by as Charlie took us all (about 6 couples) on a historical journey around the world but mainly in Great Britain. The gin tasting was very enjoyable and so was the lovely tonic that I drank during the afternoon. The other couples were great fun and there was a fun, relaxing atmosphere throughout. Would recommend to anyone interested not only in the gin & its history but for a fun few hours in the distillery in the hands of an excellent host in Charlie.

    Working for Borough Market, myself and my team were offered the chance to attend a Gin masterclass and it was a total experience! It was far better than I or my team could imagine. From walking through the door to leaving with our own personalised made Gin, it was thoroughly educational and enjoyable. I would highly recommend this masterclass, whether it is for a gift for friends, family or your everyday run of the mill alcoholic or your colleagues.

    Nice to have one of the locations of the Bermondsey Beer Mile to focus on cider as well - even as a liker of beer it's nice to have something a bit different. Big fan of Hawkes and would definitely visit on its own as well as part of the Beer Mile.

    Great gin and a great atmosphere! Superb staff - I've always had a great time at this bar. The options of other outlets surrounding the bar adds to the vibrant atmosphere; incredible during summer evenings!

    Huge range of whiskies (5 stars) Salesman was a big turn off though (1 star!). One of the first things he said was that he only drinks single cask whiskies which I felt was both ignorant and rather pretentious (symptomatic of the bs that has infected the industry).
    Still a great shop and open later than royal mile whiskies which is a bonus for an after-work trip!

    I am not usually a brandy drinker but I think I am now as the cocktails were fabulous. This place has such a good vibe and the staff are a delight.
