Media flocked to The City of London Distillery (COLD) on Friday evening to celebrate its five years of successful trading. A preview in The Times business pages promoted the anniversary event, which was attended by journalists from outlets including Press Association, Sainsbury’s Magazine, The Cocktail Lovers, Mayfair Magazine and BBC Good Food.
The Rt Hon The Lord Mayor Alderman Charles Bowman toasted COLD’s success, with special recognition as the only gin distillery in London’s Square Mile and the first for over 200 years.
Jonathan Clark, MD of The City of London Distillery, created a bespoke limited edition gin for the Lord Mayor – The City of London Distillery Lord Mayor’s Gin – to mark the five-year anniversary, which was distilled with five botanicals: juniper, coriander, angelica, liquorice, lemon and cubeb berries.
The City of London Distillery has plans to treble growth across all trade channels over the next five years, in London, nationally and via export markets and global travel retail.
