City of London Distillery (COLD) gins, owner of the first working distillery to open in the City of London for 200 years has been added to Spirit Cartel's wide portfolio of fine liquors. The addition to Spirit Cartel marks a big step for the small-batch micro-distillery, which opened in 2012 inside entrepeneur Jonathan Clark's cocktail bar.
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.
Charles Marshall, Spirit Cartel consiglieri, says: “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 COLD, as well as getting Tom (Nichol) into the trade.”
COLD gins have an RRP ranging from £35 - £45 and are available in the on-trade through most of the wholesalers, and in the off-trade in Harrods and other premium purveyors of fine spirits.
