City of London Distillery Ltd

After many years of running hotels, bars & restaurants and enjoying G&Ts, Jonathan Clark decided to bring the gin craze back to the City of London; opening the City of London Distillery & Bar in Bride Lane, just off Fleet Street, in November 2012.

The City of London Distillery is a small independent artisan distillery and the first product is a traditional connoisseur’s London dry gin. The distillery’s striking copper stills are sealed behind huge glass panels and can be viewed from the comfort of the bar, over a gin cocktail.
