A unique journey where gin, Savile Row, history and style come together in the heart of London’s Mayfair

Arrive on Savile Row

On the day of your session, all guests will meet at the Conduit Street end of Savile Row. The Savile Row Gin Experience starts with a guided walk down Savile Row learning about the history of the famous houses, looking at the unique dressed window displays and hearing about some of the high profile customers that have shaped the rich heritage and history of the worlds most famous Street for bespoke tailoring. All tours will be conducted by a Savile Row Legend, a cutter or tailor with a decades long history working in Savile Row.

The history of Gin and gin distilling
Walk through the famous front doors of No. 1 Savile Row, home of Gieves & Hawkes and into the military archive room for a welcome Gin & Tonic where you will hear all about the history of Gin and Gin distilling.

How Gin is Made

Once you’ve taken in the surrounding of the world’s most famous royal military outfits that surround all corners of the archive room, your gin stylist will explain to you the processes involved in creating gin and give a quick overview of the many rules and regulations which gin producers are obliged to abide.

Get to Know the Botanicals

Now it is time to get a little more hands on, and noses on as well, as you will be given a tutored tasting and nosing of the botanicals that are available to you, some will be familiar to you from the worlds of cuisine, perfume and confectionary, others less so. This is where you really get to understand the impact on your gin that the selection of these ingredients is going to have.

Make your own Gin

Enter the William Kent Room and be guided through the process of choosing your botanicals and making a bespoke made gin on your own mini copper pot still, all overseen by one of our expert Gin Stylists who will assist you in blending your chosen botanicals into your very own gin, whilst you last get to sample delicious Gin cocktails, surrounded by some of Savile Row’s most famous outfits including those worn by Princess Diana, Winston Churchill., Gregory Peck and many more.


Once each of the guests present has created and received their blend of gin you’ll all be given one last cocktail, usually a Martini if you’re feeling up to it, and you will also be presented with your own personalised Savile Row Style Graduation certificate.

A unique and unforgettable event for all Gin lovers, delivered in the world’s most iconic street for bespoke tailoring and delivered in true Savile Row Style.
