  • I bought the Ginexperience for my friend as a birthday present. First she was a bit sceptical about the 3 hour session, but we both thoroughly enjoyed it! We had soo much fun and learned a lot about Gin. Even made our own. Can only recommend this. Our host Joe was absolutely Gintastic!!
  • Fabulous place been twice in a few days. If I was local this would be where you find me. Lovely cocktails Nd a decently long list. Also knowledgeable enough to go off menu and have a great time. Lovely service. Cannot praise this place enough
  • Had the gin experience, you get 4 gin cocktails, lots of tasting and two bottles to take back home! Phil and a women I've forgotten the name of sorry, were great at explaining things and telling us the history of gin. 👍
  • Quick to be shown s table, but then the spirit of good service ends. After an eternal wait and frantic waving, we were finally offered to place our orders, at least half an hour after being seated. However, the Soho Spritz is really a treat!
  • We were bought the Ginstitute experience for a wedding gift and what a gift. A fabulous walk through the history of gin, generous and delicious drinks served and the the opportunity to make your own blend of gin. Sam was a great host and it was a real fun experience for gin lovers… generous on the gin too!!
