The London Distillery Company, creators of whiskies, gins and other amazing liquids, don’t just represent a city or a production site. Their values of openness and experimentation embody the melting pot that London represents and this year almost 2 million G&T’s will be enjoyed using their products.
TLDC was established as the first whisky distillery in London for over 100 years & the team was proud to launch the first whisky in Oct 2018, a limited edition four-year-old 100% rye which sold out in a matter of weeks. We also produce a range of award-winning organic spirits under the 'Dodd's' and 'Kew' brands, with Kew being a unique partnership with the Royal Botanic Gardens, Kew in London (each bottle supports their research and conservation work).
We are a small team of 8 but one with tremendous reach as you can find our range in some of London's best bars as well as in Waitrose, Marks and Spencer, online (at Master of Malt, Whisky Exchange and Amazon) and on-shelf at Hong Kong International Airport. Exporting to over 15 markets including China (where we own a share in a distribution business based in Shanghai), our first exports to Canada and 6 South East Asian markets are in progress & we have plans to launch in the USA and India by the end of 2019.
Since new management took over in Nov 2017, sales volumes have increased by 44% to £864k in Mar 2019 (net loss £373k) & we are now looking to expand the sales team to drive growth both in the UK & overseas. We also intend to experiment with innovative whisky finishes & to release further limited expressions of London whisky.
The Company has had significant media coverage with the BBC, ITV and The Financial Times amongst others.
