Bombay Sapphire Distillery
Explore the Bombay Sapphire Distillery with a distillery host to guide you. Discover the ten exotic botanicals infused into every drop of Bombay Sapphire Gin in the Glasshouses with an insight into Heatherwick Studios’ inspired design. Your host will then help you navigate the Botanical Dry Room, a sensory experience to uncover your flavour preferences. You’ll go behind the scenes of the Dakin Still House, where you can discover the rare vapour infusion distillation process which makes Bombay Sapphire gin so exquisite, before your host leaves you to enjoy a drink of your choice from our menu ‘on the house’ in the Mill Bar.
Laverstoke Mill is a working distillery so we insist that guests wear suitable footwear. Guests wearing open-toed shoes or high heels will not be able to enter the Still House
