You could say it all began in No 97, a little neighbourhood restaurant located in the heart of leafy Maple Road, Surbiton.

City meets country. In all the good ways. An easy mix of innovation and international cuisine with the openness and rootsy warmth. It’s a natural extension of who we are – part city slicker, part bumpkin.

As bartenders, we wanted to create a gin that was an expression of our travels and experiences. An inspired mix of all the interesting flavours we’d discovered along the way, driven by a real passion for the hospitality industry.

Sam, Alex + Our Fantastic Team


Discover Surbiton’s hidden distillery + gin bar. A hideaway for luxury libations & late night liaisons in a speakeasy-style basement.

This is the where The Good Life Gin Company was hatched and is now home to our tiny Nano Distillery, where our 10L copper pot still ‘Barbara’ lives literally on top of the bar. By day we work hard producing gin for all four of our restaurants, on top of all our amazing customers. By night we are slinging tasty gin cocktails into the late hours of the evening.

Sam’s House rule: always swirl, nose and sip your gin like a seasoned connoisseur.
