The New World Trading Company is to open its second Birmingham venue in August, which will include an on-site gin distillery.

The venue also marks the launch of the sixth brand from the company, who also operate the Botanist chain. The Canal House is inspired by the late engineer, James Brindley and will replace the former James Brindley pub on Bridge Street, with spaces including Brindley’s brew room, study, lounge and drawing room.

The cocktail menu will include oak-smoked spirits and overproof rum, 60 world beers, as well as Budvar’s unpasteurised tank beer ‘Tankové Pivo’, that’s matured for 90 days. A ‘secret’ gin distillery will sit at the back of the first-floor bar.

The new venue is expected to provide around 80 jobs.

'Following the success of The Botanist, we’re really excited to launch The Canal House in Birmingham this August,' general manager, Liam Carney said.

'Birmingham is a great city with lots of ambition and passion. By delving into the rich history and heritage of this amazing location, we’ve created a fantastic concept that we are confident locals will enjoy the story of.'
