Some call it Mother’s Ruin, but we think this classic liquor doesn’t deserve the bad reputation. Sure, there’s no doubt that gin may have caused the fall of a reveler or two, but we’re exceptionally pleased that this old-fashioned tipple is making a comeback.
And, London's newest and hottest bars are embracing gin’s prodigal return with gusto. We’ve cherry-picked nine of our favorites — from fable-inspired wonderlands to speakeasies surreptitiously hidden in pie shops — and we convinced the bartenders to share recipes for their best cocktails. So, get ready to go out — or pick up a bottle of Tanqueray and stay in — either way, it’s time to enjoy some of the best drinks in London.
