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.
