Mr Fogg's Gin Parlour
Mr Fogg's already boasts an impressive list of over 150 gins to try (not all in one go!), but to celebrate this year's World Gin Day the bar is attempting London's first ever four-metre gin pour, filling a gin goblet from the top windows of the bar onto the street below - now there's a challenge!
