Project Case Study

Bombay Sapphire Gin Distillery

There has been a Mill on site in Laverstoke since at least 903 AD


Transforming a 300 year old paper Mill with over 1000 years of history within a Conservation Area and a Site of Special Scientific Interest took patience and dedication. Working with Heatherwick Studio, Bombay Sapphire sympathetically renovated Laverstoke Mill into a sustainable distillery that showcases the natural beauty and industrial heritage of the site…

What we did

To protect this historic property, AFS installed a state of the art Notifier networked fire alarm system across the entire site.

A particular challenge was the protection of the stills as the production process creates an explosive atmosphere, requiring the use of EEXD classified intrinsically safe and explosion proof equipment.
