The Tuesday night of London Cocktail Week was my chance to learn more about gin in Camden, with the Half Hitch tour and tasting.
Half Hitch gin tour of Camden
Mark Holdsworth, founder of Half Hitch is a local like me and makes his gin in the vaults under Camden lock. We were visiting his new shop right by the main Lock Market for this special London Cocktail week event:
The G with TEA
Camden’s gin history
Gilbeys occupied pretty much the whole of the Camden Lock area up until 1964 – the high walls around the market area were to keep people from stealing the gin and even the iconic Roundhouse venue used to be a bonded warehouse!
