The Gantry and Botanist Gin create the ultimate East London terrace

This summer, Botanist Gin is teaming up with East London’s coolest hotel, The Gantry, they have launched a new summer terrace as well as creating a refreshing gin menu. As the sun sparkles above Stratford, guests are able to enjoy beautifully made cocktails surrounded by flowers, planters and foliage.

Having launched this month, the pop-up Botanist Terrace offers views across the city’s sweeping skyline that can be enjoyed at any time of day or night. The secluded wrap-around terrace is an oasis for after work drinks, weekend cocktails and the drawn-out sunset evenings of summer. The terrace is decorated with gentle foliage, fruit and plants that reflects The Botanist’s roots on Islay and the 22 foraged island botanicals that they use to make the gin. Guests are able to sip cocktails from The Botanist garden swing, or enjoy a Gin & Tonic on one of the sofas.

Botanist Gin has worked with The Gantry’s bar team to devise a selection of refreshing cocktails that showcase the brand’s hand-picked beautiful botanicals. Concoctions like The Wild Garden (£11) combine The Botanist Gin with elderflower and apple, while the Botanist Bubbles (£12) is a delightful tropical spritz option that mixes The Botanist Gin with Passoã, lemonade, fresh passionfruit and Prosecco. Or for those who want to enjoy a pre-dinner classic, The Botanist Gin & Tonic, garnished with mint and grapefruit is the ideal drink to kick off an evening.
