Distilleries In London That Are Open Right Now

These distilleries in London are open for visitors in a COVID-secure way.

Effective from June, bars are allowed to re-open, which means brewery taprooms can pour beers again, regardless of whether they serve food. However, beer fans should expect a few post-pandemic changes to taproom culture. For example, limited capacity may make reservations necessary to spend time drinking at your favorite brewery, and the beer may be served in disposable cups rather than glassware. Arguably the biggest shift is the absence of sample sizes and beer-tasting flights.
