East London Liquor Company is a distillery producing and importing a range of quality handcrafted spirits including gin, vodka, rum and whisky. Bringing spirits production back to London's East End after more than a century, they are reinstating an industry back to its roots. Located in one of Bow's most well known historical sites, the old glue factory in Bow Wharf.
The East London Liquor Company will be the first distillery in London to produce gin, whisky and vodka in East London for over a century. The spirits are made in two copper stills 450-650 litres at a time. Two of the first spirits to they produced are super premium gins that celebrate the pivotal role London has played in the juniper-based spirits history.
The ELLC rum is a Guyanese Demerara Rum that has rather interestingly been distilled in a wooden Coffey still - the only surviving wooden column still in the world, no less! Following this, the rum is then aged for 3 years in ex-bourbon casks
Nose: Brown sugar and milky coffee, with a whiff of lychee.
