The Langham, London is joining forces with artisan distillery Sipsmith for the launch of the Sipsmith Gin Palace, opening its doors from 13th September with live jazz and opulent surroundings to transport guests back to the 1800s. Palm Court will be transformed into an enchanting evening venue on Thursday, Friday and Saturdays from 7pm until midnight. The Gin Palace will offer inspired gin-infusions and cocktails designed by Sipsmith Master Distiller, Jared Brown and The Langham’s Head Mixologist Alex Kratena. The bar menu will celebrate the history of gin. Each cocktail will represent a different stage in the evolution of this British classic; from 1690 when gin was first born, to the invention of the first G&T in 1793 and finally arriving at the 21st century with the rise of molecular mixology. The cocktails will be complemented by a selection of tasting dishes to reflect the elegance of the authentic grand gin palaces, including the Princess Louise in Holborn and Princess Victoria in Shepherd’s Bush.
