A celebration of Scottish gin
a breakdown of the true origins event
This was a relatively new event and the organisers wanted to bring Scottish gin to a new London audience. After a trip to the venue for another consumer show, Mungo and Guy Finlayson, True OriGINs founders know they had found the right place for their own event. Tobacco Dock’s convenient location combined with the flexible space on offer and the scope the venue provides to grow events were key factors in the decision-making process. The North Vaults are a distinctive and stylish setting for a consumer show and are self-contained while enjoying the impressiveness of the wider venue.

Journey of discovery
The organisers were passionate about introducing attendees to the many emerging distilleries in Scotland and making this as immersive an experience as possible. The flexible space in the North Vaults meant that they were able to create a compelling journey through the venue taking their guests on a gin tour of the different areas of Scotland.
The bars were spread out around the space, with the barrel-ceilinged vault spaces serving as breakouts for workshops and masterclasses.
This was an event with an extremely short lead time, so the organisers appreciated the experience and professionalism of our team who helped get everything ready in time. We were able to support on the organisation and in amplifying their marketing to ensure their target audience knew about the event and was inspired to come along.
We picked Tobacco Dock due to it being such a great event space in a perfect location, with lots of potential for growing the brand.
"Having first run True OriGINs - The Scottish Gin Festival in Aberdeen, our aim with the brand was to introduce it to a wider audience. After visiting lots of London venues, we finally picked Tobacco Dock due to it being such a great event space in a perfect location, with lots of potential for growing the brand. Andrew Cameron and his team at Tobacco Dock were a pleasure to deal with and all our questions both before, during and after the the event were answered quickly."
