Pack a bag for your next gin sesh in Notting Hill. The Distillery is launching next month on Portobello Road with a whole four floors dedicated to gin and three boutique guest bedrooms taking bookings. Expect the most banging minibar around – the good folk at Portobello Road Gin are the team behind the operation, and are expanding their gin distillery on this new site, as well as adding two gin bars and a gin shop to the ‘hood.
The ground-floor bar will be known as the Resting Room, where they’ll not just be serving gin, but also a whole host of spirits aged in barrels suspended from the ceiling. Meanwhile, on the first floor there’s Spanish bar and restaurant GinTonica. Say hola to a giant G&Ts in the classic Copa de Balón style (you know, those ruddy large, bowl-shaped glasses). The team will also be expanding The Ginstitute, their museum dedicated to Mother’s Ruin. Sounds like it's time for a boozy west London getaway.
The Distillery is set to open on Friday December 16. To book a room visit www.the-distillery.london.
