A Tour of Beefeater Gin Distillery

During the first half, journey back to 18th-century London and discover the gin craze that swept the city; you can walk down a replica of William Hogarth's famous Gin Lane, explore a Victorian-era Covent Garden (that produced the herbs, fruits, and flowers that flavored the gin), and visit Burrough's American Bar. On the guided tour, meanwhile, you’ll see the original copper stills, learn about the art of gin-making, and enjoy a complimentary gin-and-tonic at the distillery’s bar.
