Overview

It’s never too early for gin! This popular spirit has taken the country by storm, with unlikely gin lovers popping up in pubs and bars around the country. You may be more used to sipping your favourite tipple out of a can, but it’s time for you to taste gin the way it’s meant to be! Step into the world of royalty and nobility at the stunning The Rubens at the Palace, just a stone’s throw from Buckingham Palace. Within this elegant venue you’ll find a wealth of history and culture representing the life of the Royal Family, debutantes and even footmen right back to the 1700s. During your experience, the resident mixologist will teach you everything you need to know about gin and tonic and you’ll be tasting 3 sensational gins accompanied by complimentary tonic water pairings. As the tasting gets underway you can line your stomachs with a delicious sharing platter of British style Tapas.

Great hotel, very experienced staff, fantastic food. Talked us through history of gin, making processes, flavourings, quality etc. Tasted three ‘double’ gins, putting different flavours to alter tastes. Learnt that’s unless your paying £50 a bottle you don’t need expensive gin, it’s all about what you add to it.
