The City Remembrancer’s Office (which was established during the reign of Elizabeth I) approved our application to hold the Gin Guild Installation at Guildhall in the City of London.
Guildhall has been the City powerhouse since the twelfth century. In an era when the Lord Mayor of London rivalled the monarch for influence and prestige, this was where he and the ruling merchant class held court, and fine-tuned the laws and trading regulations that helped create London’s wealth.
Today, 800 years on, Guildhall is still home of the City of London Corporation, and acts as a grand setting for glittering banquets in honour of visiting Heads of State and other dignitaries, royal occasions, and receptions for major historical anniversaries.
Situated in the heart of the City of London, the world’s leading financial and business centre, this rare and magnificent medieval Grade I listed landmark offers a spectacular backdrop. Our Installation and dinner (lounge suit as usual for this event, as a contrast to our Mansion House event), is to be held in The Old Library. This was designed by Sir Horace Jones and built in 1870.
Guild members are encouraged to consider inviting gin industry guests to the event, such as distributors, colleagues or favoured customers.
