Tour the craft distilleries and breweries of londonFeatured Guide
London has been famous for its gin for centuries. But whereas the Hogarthian vision of Gin Lane was one of wretchedness, in recent years this aromatic spirit has been undergoing something of a renaissance, with independent distilleries springing up across the capital. It's no different when it comes to beer - gone are the stereotypes of undrinkable, flat, warm beer - replaced by some astounding microbreweries (often attached to pubs), creating some of the most innovative beers and lagers available to London's discerning drinking scene.
