Description

From 1750 to 1850, gin had moved from being a deadly and foul drink slurped in the slums of London to something sophisticated that was quaffed in the sparkling surroundings of gin palaces.

Located in the heart of Shoreditch, on London’s ancient thoroughfare of Worship Street, Worship Street Whistling Shop celebrates those convivial and glamourous gin palaces of Victorian London.

Opening in 2011 to great critical acclaim, Worship Street Whistling Shop won Time Out London’s ‘Best New Bar’ award that same year and went on to feature in the World’s 50 Best Bars list for three consecutive years.

Whistling Shop takes a very unique approach to the art of creating great cocktails, specialising in delicious libations inspired by the past that are executed with a proficiency in cutting-edge culinary techniques, such as nitrogen stir down or rotovap liqueur. Years of in-house experimentation with flavour, multi-sensory perception and theatricality have resulted in a menu that includes gin-inspired cocktails such as the ‘Imperial Feathery Fizz’ (Tanqueray Gin, lemon, olive oil, fermented baobab, yuzu and lecithin) and the ‘Persian Slipper’ (Tanqueray No.10, Whistling Shop’s chai masala, cocchi di torino, tobacco aroma and dry aged acid).

Join one the expert bartending team at Worship Street Whistling Shop in a tasting through gin history. The experience begins with a helping of neat Genever served with bar snacks (nuts and olives) and an introduction into the fascinating world of gin. As part of the introduction, guests will handle, smell and identify a selection of traditional botanicals to better understand the distilling process.

This is followed by a flight of three premium gins made using different techniques, such as Rotovap gin, London Dry and Compound. Each gin will be accompanied by a perfectly suited tonic water to taste. Finish the experience with an innovative house cocktail, crafted using Whistling Shop’s renowned culinary wizardry.
