Architecture and design practice Heatherwick Studio has created a contemporary new distillery for gin brand BOMBAY SAPPHIRE.
The London design studio has transformed the historic buildings of Laverstoke Mill in Hampshire, England.
At the heart of the design is a series of bell jar-shaped greenhouses where visitors can explore 10 different botanicals.
The studio also renovated the site’s Victorian and Georgian buildings, restoring them to their former glory and transforming them into a Still House, a Heritage Room and a Gallery.
The Mill has been awarded the prestigious BREEAM (Building Research Establishment’s Environmental Assessment Method) Award for Sustainable Industrial Design.
Previously a paper mill for the Bank of England for nearly 250 years, the site is opening its doors to the public for the first time on October 1.
Visitors will be able to taste, test and serve their own cocktails onsite.
