Bermondsey Distillery Information
Bermondsey Distillery Description
The story of the Bermondsey Distillery starts in Japan in 2001, when Founder Christian Jensen lived there and discovered one of Japan’s legendary hidden bars. The barman poured Jensen a Martini, which was unlike anything he’d ever tried before.
The Gin used was something that’s no longer produced, with the label almost worn away. On his return to London, Jensen set about finding the recipe to this now defunct Gin. After months of thorough research, he enlisted the help of Charles Maxwell at Thames Distillers, and the two began experimenting and trying to recreate the Gin.
After 10-15 trial distillations, they settled upon a recipe which was true to the original. Jensen persuaded his local bar to take a case so that he could order his favorite Martini in a local bar once more. Jensen’s Gin was born. Production was small scale, but word spread and demand grew.
In 2014, production moved to the Bermondsey Distillery, under the rail arches, just a stone’s throw from Tower Bridge. Production remains small, but the distillery not only houses a John Dore & Co. still but also opens as a bar on weekends.
