East London Liquor Company are proud to present their Whisky Lover's Tour and Tasting at their distillery in Bow Wharf. Visiting the first whisky, gin and vodka distillery in East London (the city's historic distilling district) in over 100 years offers the chance to witness part of London's whisky revival. With their in-house brewery, distillery and bottle shop (which hosts a wide range of gins, vodkas, rums and, of course, whiskies from around the world), expect a spirited and informative visit to this award-winning East London destination. Starting January 2018, you will not only be guided through the brewing and distillation process, from the modern day methods to the illicit distilling history of the past, but also have the rare behind-the-scenes opportunity to explore every step of the way: from the fresh grain and beer wash, to the 'low-wines' and the clear 'new make' from the still. You will then head downstairs to their maturation room to discover the secrets of barrel-ageing while tasting whiskies from around the world.
