I’ve been fortunate to try two gins from ELLC. Starting with their conventional ELLC gin, it is a gin that I would recommend to friends who are eager to find a solid London dry to create with and also enjoy in a standard G&T. On the tongue it is juniper forward, citrus and herbal followed (coriander and angelica coming forward for me) with a cardamom/pepper finish. In my opinion it is a solid house gin option by a wonderful distillery, a gin i’d recommend for anyone looking to begin their cocktail creation journey with. The Batch 2 gin by East London Liquor Company is where this brand truly shines in my opinion. This has been a solid go-to recommendation for friends of mine as an upper shelf gin to create with in terms of elevated cocktail quality. It sits at a whopping 47%, and takes the botanicals from the above mentioned gin and enhances it with palpable sage, lavender, bay leaf and lemon peel. It is absolutely OFF THE CHARTS in a dry martini and in my preferences truly shines in a dirty martini!
I tried this gin as part of the Sipping Rooms and Boutique Bar Brands virtual gin tasting, cocktail making and distillery tour. I ordered this through the Gin Kiosk and the London Dry Gin was only £21.50 including delivery and two of their own premixed cans – Rum & Ginger as well as Grapefruit G&T.
East London Liquor Company London Dry gin is a fantastic gin! It is a smooth bold gin that has a great combination of juniper led and citrus notes and lemongrass with a gentle spicy finish coming from the cardamom.
Afterwards we created a negroni with the gin. First time, I have created one and it might just be a new favourite cocktail.
Dry Martini Also another great drink! The sweetness form the Sherry was great and added to the citrus tones. I may be converted to making more than just an espresso martini now!
The guys at East London Liquor Company are a great laugh, know their stuff really well and I just loved their story. From the reasons for the bottle shape and design as well as why the horse is upside down on the bottle. It’s due to the distillery being and old glue factory, which used to made particularly from horses hooves.
Brilliant gin that affordable for everyone! They have shown how versatile it is it and can be used as both a G&T or in cocktails.
They have a fantastic range of gins, vodka, rum and whiskey as well as pre-mixed cans. All are available on their website.
They were so inviting and have mainly distillery tours and tasting sessions available.
I first discovered East London Liquor Company back in 2015 when a group of us went on a Gin Journey for a birthday bash. This sealed my love of this gin. When visiting the distillery we were given tasters of their London Dry and Batch No. 2. Batch No. 2 became a favourite straight away, with a purchase made at their shop on site. The gin has the holy trinity of juniper, coriander seeds and Angelica root with the addition of thyme, winter savory, fennel seeds, orris root, lavender, lemon peel, sage and bay leaf.
A fantastic savoury gin, which makes and amazing G & T with plain tonic and sage leaf garnish or give a Negroni a try with it. It has a fantastic 47% ABV with a very reasonable price tag around the £31 mark.
