The Bombay Sapphire Distillery offers a truly unique conference venue with a variety of room and setting options.

For £49 per delegate including vat, they provide:

  • All-day room hire in the Gallery
  • Bombay Sapphire branded stationary and flip chart
  • Audio visual equipment
  • Unlimited complimentary tea, coffee and water
  • Finger buffet lunch
  • Entry to the Distillery experience

Room hire rates are also available for events. The other event spaces include:

The Mill Bar and Terrace: the Mill Bar is a spacious multi-level bar with both indoor and outdoor seating along the River Test. A unique space for social or networking events, the mill bar can also be hired with the adjacent Entrance Hall, making the perfect space for a dance floor or buffet to complement the bar.

The Vault: the Vault is a great private space for informal meetings and intimate gatherings. Adjacent to the Mill Bar, its fully restored original vaulted ceilings and door gives this unique space real character. The Vault can be hired with the Mill Bar in the evening or on its own on an hourly rate during the day.

The Empire Bar: the exclusive Empire Bar is the jewel in the crown of Laverstoke Mill. The Empire Bar can be hired throughout the year as a perfect space for Masterclasses, drinks receptions or as a casual meeting space.

The Glasshouses: a real highlight of the Bombay Sapphire Distillery – the two intertwining glasshouses contain living examples of the ten exotic botanicals infused into Bombay Sapphire. These iconic glass structures emerging coming out of the river test make an excellent unique space for cocktail receptions.
