Looking for some ginspiration for your bar? British microdistillery City of London has made its way onto Spirit Cartel's books.
Founded in a cocktail bar in 2012, the distillery produces a range of five small-batch premium gins: London Dry Gin (41.3% abv), Christopher Wren Gin created by former Tanqueray distiller Tom Nichols (45.3% abv), Old Tom Gin (43.3% abv), Sloe Gin (28% abv) and the limited Square Mile Gin (47.3% abv).
The gins are distilled using the traditional 'one shot' method – helping to achieve what the distillery describes as a 'uniquely smooth liquid'.
Bottle wise, the design showcases the distillery's location near St Paul's Cathedral, with a dome-shaped top and elongated spire-style neck.
'Knowing Spirit Cartel's history with their other brands, I was still a little dazed even whilst the celebratory-deal-sealed G&Ts were being sipped,' says Jonathan Clark, founder of City of London Distillery.
'The addition of City of London Distillery will further strengthen our presence in the gin market and complement our portfolio of premium brands,' added Spirit Cartel's Charles Marshall. 'They're a perfect fit for the Cartel with their attention to detail, as well as the slight off-the-wall essence to the things they do.
We look forward to telling their story and working with Jonathan and the team at C.O.L.D, as well as getting Tom [Nichol] into the trade.'
