The Distillery Presents: A Night Eating and Drinking as James Bond …

Being the superb gin fans that you are, I’m sure you will have heard of the ‘The Distillery’ on Portobello Road; home of the Ginstitute masterclass and gin creating experience, brilliant cocktail bar ‘The Resting Room’, mouth-watering restaurant ‘GinTonica’ and of course the famous Gin Hotel!

This year The Distillery have added another fantastic experience to their repertoire – the mysteriously named The Distillery Presents immersive dining experience …

Recently the ILoveGin team were very lucky to visit and experience one of their three immersive dining experiences:

Tales of Glamour and Excess: The Drinks and Dinners of James Bond

That’s right, after a quick aperitif in the GinTonica restaurant bar, we headed to The Distillery’s famous Boardroom for a night of James Bond inspired food and beverages!


The Boardroom


Upon entering the Boardroom, we were treated to a wee tipple as The Distillery Director and Founder Jake Burger introduced us to the world of James Bond.

Seven courses (can you guess why 7?) of JB inspired food and drink followed. In between each course, Jake would tell us what we were about to eat/drink and why. He relayed a few fascinating anecdotes from the Great British spy’s culinary history and how they were transformed into some of the most delicious dishes we’ve tasted!


Jake Burger

Unfortunately the drinks and food menu is classified top secret – so no spoilers here! – but what I can tell you is that each course was incredibly well crafted with an incredible amount of thought and reference to both Ian Fleming’s texts and the silver screen interpretations.

Every single drink and food course served, was of an impeccable quality and we had a M-agnificent time. 007/007 would recommend for both newbie and die hard JB fans alike.



However, if James Bond culinary extravaganza isn’t really your thing (but it definitely should be) there are two other fantastic immersive dining experiences to choose from:


  • “I’ll Have What She’s Having” The Food & Drink of TV and the Silver Screen
  • 5 Centuries: An Edible Adventure Through the Ages
