Discover a world-class, state-of-the-art distillery. A behind the scenes gin tour, G&T and a tasting of six gins.
WHAT'S THIS ALL ABOUT?
See the copper stills in their distillery and learn how their spirit is made before completing the visit with a gin tasting. With a gin and tonic in hand discover the history of gin from its illicit beginnings to the craze that has taken over the London bar scene. First off you will be sipping their East London Gin, followed by their Brighter Gin and Louder Gin. Try to pick out the botanicals before tasting another three contrasting gins. At the end of one and a half hours, you will absolutely be the font of knowledge on all things gin.
TELL ME MORE?
Back in ‘the good old days’ of 1743, gin was peddled from street carts and cut with turps and sulphuric acid to give it an edge. East London Liquor Company may have set up in a former glue factory but there the comparison ends. This is a world class state-of-the-art distillery. The copper stills ping and glasses gleam as you explore behind the scenes. This is the first east London whisky, gin and vodka distillery to open its doors for over a century.
