The Great Gin Escape

The ultimate tour and tasting experience for gin lovers

We’ve partnered with Jim & Tonic Distillery to give you an exclusive behind the scenes insight into gin making paired with a luxurious stay at The Stratford.

You’ll start the day by dropping your bags off at the hotel before heading across to the Jim & Tonic HQ either by foot or taxi. You’ll be welcomed with a gin cocktail before taking a look at their beautiful copper stills and learning all about the process which goes into making your favourite gins. This will be followed by an in-depth talk and tasting of their entire range with a master distiller.

Finish the experience with a perfect serve J&T before heading back to the hotel where you can have your first drink on us in The Lounge. Carry on the evening and explore our restaurants and bars, including Kitchen E20, Terrace E20, The Mezzanine and Allegra Bar & Restaurant.
