Based at Laverstoke Mill in rural Hampshire town of Whitchurch, the Bombay Sapphire Distillery is in a conservation area with over 1000 years of history and is one of the most talked about attractions in Hampshire. For over 225 years, the Victorian and Georgian buildings along the crystal clear River Test produced bank note paper for the Bank of England and the British Empire. Now, Laverstoke Mill is a sustainable distillery which produces every drop of Bombay Sapphire gin.

Learn about the ten botanicals which make Bombay Sapphire so exquisite in the iconic Glasshouses. Chart hundreds of years of Laverstoke’s illustrious history, married with the fascinating heritage of gin and Bombay Sapphire. Uncover the secrets of Bombay Sapphire’s unique vapour-infusion distillation process in the Dakin Still House. Then discover your own personal taste profile in our Dry Room, and use your profile to order a complimentary cocktail from the Mill Bar suited to your tastes.

Why should I visit?

    • The Botanical Glasshouses - designed by Heatherwick Studios, the iconic Glasshouses at the Bombay Sapphire distillery house living examples of all the botanicals which go into creating the exquisite flavour of Bombay Sapphire Gin
    • The Botanical Dry Room - smell the aromas in the 22 jars around the botanical dry room, and clip the aroma wheel on your map to indicate your favourites.
    • The Dakin Still House - venture inside the Dakin Still House to see Bombay Sapphire gin being distilled before your eyes. You can even try a sip of Bombay Sapphire gin straight off the still.
    • River Test - flowing through the middle of the Bombay Sapphire Distillery is the crystal clear River Test, a chalk stream river home to an array of wildlife and plants. Keep your eyes out for brown trout, eels, and if you're lucky, even water voles and otters in the river.
    • Mill Bar - Inside a beautiful Grade II listed building, the Mill Bar is where you can enjoy your complimentary cocktail at the end of your tour.
