East London Liquor Company releases 400-day Barrel-Aged Gin

22 November 2017

The silly season it may be, particularly if you work in the on-trade, but there inevitably are some consolations to be found around this time of the year too. Take this latest launch from ELLC, for example. The east-London distillery’s final barrel-aged gin release for 2017 has been timed, it says, to kick off the festive season, and sounds like a fitting way to do so.

Having spent 400 days in former sherry casks, the distillery’s London Dry Gin is then bottled at 46.1%. We have yet to try it – it hits shelves and back bars on 1 December – but the team at the distillery reckon it’s ‘Christmas in a glass’, that ‘fits the season perfectly, with aromas of orange zest, gingersnap cookies and chocolate-covered coffee beans, with flavours of bright citrus and baking spices such as cloves and allspice’.

A total of 401 bottles will be released next month, each individually numbered, and going for £49 RRP for 70cl.

This is just the latest from East London Liquor Company’s Barrel-Aged Gin Programme, which produces as many as four new limited-edition gins every year.
