City of London Distillery joins Spirit Cartel

Published:  30 August, 2016

Spirit specialists, Spirit Cartel, has added City of London Distillery Gins to its portfolio of premium liquors.

City of London Distillery's small-batch micro-distillery opened in 2012 inside entrepreneur Jonathan Clark's cocktail bar - and was the first working distillery to open in the City of London for 200 years.

The distillery produces a range of five small batch premium gins: London Dry Gin at 41.3% ABV, Christopher Wren Gin created by former Tanqueray distiller Tom Nichols at 45.3% ABV, Old Tom Gin at 43.3% ABV, Sloe Gin at 28% ABV and the limited Square Mile Gin at 47.3% ABV.

Using artisan techniques and high quality botanicals, City of London Distillery's gins are distilled using the traditional 'one shot' method.

The packaging design references the distillery's location near to St Paul's Cathedral.

Spirit Cartel's Charles Marshall said: "The addition of City of London Distillery will further strengthen our presence in the gin market and complement our portfolio of premium brands that include Don Q rum and Four Roses bourbon.

"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're pretty thrilled to have them on board and 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."

City of London Distillery gins retail between £35 and £45.

They are available in the on-trade through most wholesalers, and in the off-trade in Harrods and other premium fine spirits outlets.
