"A novel way of exploring London’s long-standing love affair with gin."

~ Lonely Planet

The Gin Safari takes you on a juniper-fuelled jaunt across London to reveal a story of gritty social history and the city’s turbulent affair with its favourite tipple.

As we wobble our way around picturesque Dickensian architecture, libations of ‘mothers ruin’ will be served from our GinCycle™, a rickety Victorian gin parlour on wheels.

The Gin Safari celebrates the eccentric and all that is best about the British. Think of it as a liquid history lesson on bicycles, with laughs and banter along the way. 🇬🇧

Expect a gentle cycle, bustling food markets, colourful graffiti, fabulous views, interesting insights, crude jokes, and, of course, plenty of gin tasting! 🙌

Explore a lesser known side of London through the history of gin.
