Spirit of the Month: March 2017
We choose our Spirit of the Month to highlight some of the greatest spirits in the world. Some of them are age-old classics, some of them are great new releases, but whatever it is, you can be sure that it's something we love. This month we've chosen:
Christopher Wren Gin is City of London's second release, produced in honour of the architect who designed St Paul’s Cathedral as well as rebuilding other churches across The City after The Great Fire of 1666. It's more complex than the flagship gin, with a spice-led recipe including juniper, coriander, angelica and liquorice.
From the producer
- Aroma: Strong juniper with lively citrus.
- Taste: Complex multi-layered flavours of juniper, coriander, angelica root, liquorice and fresh sweet orange zest.
- Aftertaste: Long-lasting juniper flavour overlaid with orange.
About City of London Distillery
Founded in 2012, City of London is the only distillery operating within The City itself. The building housing the distillery has a long history as a bar, restaurant and club, and owner Jonathan Clark's first job was working there as a kitchen porter in the 1970s. Along with the distillery, there is now a well-stocked gin bar and a gin lab, where you can learn to distil your own from Jonathan and his team.
The City of London range has grown over the years, from a single London Dry to five distinct gins, including an Old Tom and sloe gin.
