Laverstoke Mill is a former paper mill located on the River Test near Laverstoke in England. The mill complex contains three grade II listed buildings: the Mill House, Mill Cottages, and the Glazing House.[1]

The mill originally produced corn before the site was bought by Henry Portal in 1718 and converted into a paper mill.[2] In 1923, the mill began printing bank-notes for Britain and the British Empire.[3] It is currently used as a distillery which was designed by Heatherwick Studio[2] for the manufacture of Bombay Sapphire gin.[4]
