Delight in this 300-year-old distillery and hand-craft a chic and spirited celebration.
Bombay Sapphire took great care in renovating what was once known as the Laverstoke Mill. In fact, there has been a Mill on site in Laverstoke since at least 903 AD. In 1719 it was turned into a fine-quality hand-crafted paper mill and now it delights in distilling some of the world's smoothest gin. A gorgeous gala it will be in this glass-encased distillery!

Venue Setting
Located in rural Hampshire just 60 miles from London, Laverstoke Mill is a site steeped in natural beauty, sitting astride the crystal clear River Test and situated within a Conservation Area and Site of Special Scientific Interest (SSSI). Laverstoke Mill also has a rich history: for nearly 250 years it produced high quality watermarked banknote paper for the Bank of England and the British Empire. The careful renovation of the historic buildings encompasses the highest standards in design, functionality and sustainability. The acclaimed London-based architecture and design practice Heatherwick Studio has intricately married the old and new, creating a state-of-the-art distillery for Bombay Sapphire in the historic buildings of Laverstoke Mill. The legacy of this ambitious project has created a home that Bombay Sapphire can be rightly proud of and provides the ideal setting to spark inspiration and stimulate the senses of every visitor to the distillery. The Bombay Sapphire Distillery is available to host unique private events, from canapés and cocktails in the Botanical Dry Room next to the Dakin Stills, or a botanical banquet in the Mediterranean Glasshouse to a meal in the Gallery alongside the River Test.
