Based at Laverstoke Mill in rural Hampshire, just 15 miles from Winchester and 10 miles from Basingstoke, the Bombay Sapphire Distillery is in a conservation area with over 1000 years of history. The distillery showcases the care, skill and artistry behind every drop of Bombay Sapphire, and allows you to discover the flavours of the botanicals which make Bombay Sapphire gin so unique. All experiences must be booked online in advance.
Discovery Experience

Explore the Bombay Sapphire Distillery with a distillery host to guide you. Discover exotic botanicals in the Glasshouses with an insight into Thomas Heatherwick's inspired design. Your host will then help you uncover the Botanical Dry Room, to discover your preferred flavour palate. Go behind the scenes of the unique processes in the Dakin Still House before your host leaves you to enjoy a drink in the Mill Bar, alongside the beautiful River Test.
Gin Master Class

The Gin Cocktail Masterclass is an interactive session on cocktail culture providing the opportunity to learn and create cocktails with our Gin Experts. Uncover the history and versatility of Bombay Sapphire. Learn about the tools of the bar trade and discover tricks of the trade that will help create cocktails. Our Gin Experts will entertain with tales as they make examples live in front of you. Take your place behind the bar to make a cocktail or two then savour the fruits of your labour. The Discovery Experience is also included in the cost of the Gin Cocktail Masterclass.

Please note that until further notice, temperature checks and the wearing of face masks (which we will supply) will be required at the Bombay Sapphire Distillery. Further information about our Coronavirus policy can be found here.
