Overview

The City of London Distillery is a unique combination of a working gin distillery and a speakeasy style cocktail bar - called the COLD bar. We're open from 12:00 mid-day until 11 pm (Mon-Fri) and from 4 to 11 pm (Sat) and welcome visitors to take a tour of the distillery, enjoy a gin-tasting or masterclass, make their own bottle of gin in our distilling classes or just chill-out in the bar taking in the ambiance and aroma of gin that hangs in the air.
