The London Gin Trail aims to put London’s gin hotspots on the tourist map

Created by trade association The Wine and Spirit Trade Association (WSTA), the trail aims to education consumers on the historical origins of gin and put the spirit on the tourist map.

Also spearheaded by environment secretary Elizabeth Truss, the tour explores some of the most remarkable gin hotspots the city has to offer – from craft distillers to big players, iconic bars to gin-centred high tea experiences.

Expect to learn about the art of gin making, sample quality gins from across the globe, and revel in the history of the Gin Craze and beyond through a unique tour of the capital via its most famous gin-related landmarks.

Mile Beale, chief executive of the WSTA, said: “British gin has a strong, vibrant history. By publishing the gin trail map we hope to mark its renaissance and ensure its future as a quintessentially British, internationally recognised spirit”.
