City of London Gin Distillery

City of London Distillery

Get yourselves to COLD!  We had such a fantastic evening here for my sisters 30th Birthday Celebrations.  I organised the trip for the whole family to meet in London an head to COLD, located in the heart of the city, just off Fleet Street.  Hidden down a narrow street and down some stairs the funky basement bar has a brilliant atmosphere.

The huge brass stills take pride of place opposite the bar and the hundreds of different Gin definitely offers you something you won'y have tried before.

We had booked onto a Gin workshop just for the 5 of us where we were greeted with a City of London Distillery Gin and Tonic on arrival before being guided through the history of Gin, with the illustration of different Gins to taste.  We were shown, with the use of the in house still, how gin is produced and given a run down of different types of Gin.  

For £30 each this was most certainly a brilliant evening out, the staff were lovely, the Gin was tasty, the atmosphere was lovely, and I now love Gin even more!

Gins to try:

Aldi - London Dry Gin
