About

Puss and Mew London Dry Gin is an inter-disciplinary project by Luis Carvajal and Annie Davey who have collaborated since 2004, exploring the relation of gin to English social history through the recreation and reinvention of cultural artefacts and phenomena.

The artists speculate that the Lambeth Ragged School (opened by the Beaufoys in 1851) was perhaps built as an act of philanthropic guilt, by a family that had made its fortune distilling. It is said that they made gin until one of their members saw a copy of Hogarth's Gin Lane and resolved to have no more to do with this 'destructive force', turning instead to the production of vinegar.

A Puss and Mew gin bar will be in operation in the former girls wing (home to Beaconsfield) over Open House weekend.
