Leon Dalloway founder of Shake, Rattle and Stir, is an award-winning, booze-loving, knowledge-thirsty bartender, originally from Leicester, corrupted in Manchester and inspired in London.
He has worked for Beautiful Drinks, The London Bar Consultants, closely with Martin Miller's Gin and now Shake, Rattle and Stir is Leon’s masterplan to show people new and exciting ways about the world of alcohol.
We offer something refreshingly different - days and nights, full of decadence and delight - which will open your mind to the wide world of drinks.
We at Shake, Rattle and Stir are wild about gin, loco about cocktails and insanely in love with London so we wanted to bring these three wonderful things together to create an utterly unique experience. Check out our gin tours and all the other amazing gin treats we offer below.
The Gin Journey is a night out like you've never experienced before where you will be taken on an educational and fun-filled tour of London’s finest cocktail bars to explore the spirit that has become so synonymous with the City.
Gin is BACK and it's got its swagger on. You’ll learn all about the beautiful juniper lead spirit which has had such a tumultuous yet romantic history with London. Gin Lane, Genever, London Dry, Mother's Ruin, cucumber or lime - you name it, we'll chat about it.
On our tour you’ll be chauffeur driven by gin carriage to five bars including a working gin distillery. You'll enjoy samples of specially selected premium gins. You'll quaff well crafted gin cocktails, all whilst finding out about the history and production methods behind everything that touches your palette.
You won’t need to book a taxi, order a drink, and what’s more, there’ll be an area reserved for you in every bar. Sound great? It is.
The tour costs £50 per person and includes 5 samples of gin, 5 cocktails, a chauffeured drive from bar to bar, no hangover and a ridiculous amount of fun.
