East London Liquor Company | Bringing distilling back…





Bringing distilling back to the East End with distinct craft spirits done the way they should be | Gin has long been the classic London drink, and the spirit is making a comeback in the city’s bars | At the border of Victoria Park in Tower Hamlets, a new distillery and bar, East London Liquor Company, is bringing locally made gin back to the area, which has an extensive history of liquor-making | Founder Alex Wolpert previously ran the London bar and restaurant Barworks, until his passion for gin led him to try creating the perfect version for himself | Alongside him are master distiller Jamie Baxter and distiller Tom Hills, both from City of London Distillery | The City of London Distillery – COLD for short – opened in 2012 bringing gin distilling back to the City of London after an absence of nearly 200 years | With their speakeasy-style retro cocktail bar over-looking their striking copper stills, they welcome visitors to enjoy a cocktail or share in one of their gin experiences: tours, classes, gin flights etc | COLD is located at 22-24 Bride Lane, just off Fleet Street, in London – at the foot of the steps to St Bride’s Church | cityoflondondistillery.com
