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. In addition, the ELLC will make a London Dry Gin, an “artisanal"� vodka and a whisky aged on site for a minimum of three years. They also import rum from Demerara Distillers in Guyana.
The finest Demerara rum made using molasses produced from 100% Demerara sugar, grown on the banks of the Demerara river in Guyana. The molasses is distilled at the last remaining distillery in Guyana, Plantation Diamond on the East bank of the Demerara River using the world"„¢s only surviving wooden column still. This two-column wooden Coffey still is a unique example of the early 19th technology once widely used in rum production, it contributes to the complexity of the distillate. After distillation the new spirit is aged in ex-bourbon casks for at least 3 years before bottling.
Aromas of butterscotch, toffee and hints of tropical fruit on the nose. Classic smooth Demerara, notes of vanilla, coffee, toffee and raisins, toasty vanilla shows on the finish.
