Roast Restaurant (made by Thames Distillers, Clapham), London, England, UK.


Roast Restaurant (London).


Iqbal Wahhab was born in Bangladesh and raised in England. He worked as a journalist for 3 years before starting his own PR Company in 1991, covering the food and drink industry. In 1994 he launched the Tandoori Magazine and in 2001 sold out in order to open the successful Cinnamon Club, an Indian Restaurant and Bar. In 2005 he expanded to open Roast, a British Restaurant and Bar, and it is already hailed as one of the top restaurants in London by many reviewers. Based above the old Flower Hall at Borough Market in South East London, they serve a range of food throughout the day, supported by many drinks including a range of quality British wines.

Many products they serve are available to buy and these offerings continue to grow. In May 2013 they launched this, their own bespoke branded Gin.


Once distilled by Thames Distillers the resultant distillate is shipped to Scotland where it is blended with soft Perthshire water and bottled, before being shipped back to London.

The Gin is presented in a clear squat cylindrical bottle with a white triangular styled label. The label has grey trim with a design of the fabulous Victorian window (found at the Roast restaurant) in the background and “Roast” written in clear black colored text.

Tasting Notes

Unfortunately we have not been able to taste this Gin yet. We hear it is juniper forward with some spice and are impatiently awaiting a trip to the UK to pick up a bottle.

If you find yourself near London Bridge, it should be well worth eating and drinking at Roast. Let us know what you think, should you be able to give them a visit, we would love to hear your comments.
