The Stillroom

The Stillroom

The stillroom, its where it all starts.

The stillroom is our inhouse distillery and laboratory, its where we create all of our spirits, liqueurs, tinctures, ferments, cordials, syrups, shrubs, bitters and garnishes. We use it a lot and you can find the team working away in here daily, when we are not making ingredients for the parlour we open the stillroom up to our guests and invite you to join us and experience the art, craft, secrets, and history of cocktails and distilling with our fully immersive stillroom sessions.

Whether your drink is a scotch on the rocks, a French 75 or an espresso martini. We offer a range of sessions and classes to suit your taste. Each of our stillroom sessions has been carefully tailored by our team.
