Welcome!

At 186 Portobello Road lies The Distillery, a four-floor mecca for the discerning drinker. The first of its kind in the UK, we are not only a working distillery in the centre of London, but also the new home for the internationally-renowned Portobello Road gin and the critically acclaimed gin-blending experience, The Ginstitute, two bars, a private dining room, and three guest lodgings.

The Boardroom

Our Private Dining Room on the top floor offers the ultimate dining experience. The luxurious room seats up to 20 people with an unparalleled view of one of London’s most iconic streets.

Boutique Rooms

Nestled on the top floor of The Distillery in the heart of Notting Hill is West London’s worst kept secret: Three boutique rooms for you to lodge in. Stay for a night or two and wake to the hustle & bustle of Portobello Road’s world famous market, surrounded by an area rich in history & culture.

Did you know that the Spanish are one of the world’s largest consumers of gin? In homage to the country that adores our favourite spirit (our ‘spiritual’ home, you might say), we’ve curated a selection of the world’s best gins for you to enjoy in our second flood bar, GinTonica. Each are paired with some of our favourite premium mixers, crowned with extravagant, flavoursome garnishes and served in our signature Copa glassware.

The Resting Room

As proud purveyors of London spirit, our ground floor bar has a cocktail menu created by our Master Distiller, Jake Burger. The list features cocktails made using our eclectic range of homemade ingredients, created on our 400L copper pot still, King Henry, as well as some of favourite cocktail creations from bartending friends. If you enjoy an aged beverage, suspended above the bar are also 7 recoopered barrels of spirits from our friends around the world, that we can serve directly from… bringing a whole new meaning to fresh from the barrel.

The Resting Room

The Ginstitute Experience, which began its life as London’s smallest museum, has now grown significantly and moves into the basement of The Distillery. Join our Master Distiller Jake Burger and his team of Ginstructors for an immersive gin history session, followed by a nosing of an impressive and esoteric collection of botanicals & their distillates. Finish off by creating your very own blend!
