The London Distillery Company was first established in 1807 by the engineer & entrepreneur Ralph Dodd. While he wasn’t very successful at distilling, over 100 years later a group of drinks lovers decided to re-establish the company and in 2011 it reopened to become the first whisky distillery in London for over 100 years. The first rye whiskey was released in October 2018 and the first single malt whisky was released in December 2018.
Dodd’s gin is widely available in the premium on-trade around London as well as via Fortnum & Mason, Waitrose and Marks & Spencer. It is heralded as a true 1920’s style gin by some of the best baertenders around the world.
BBB continue to strive to deliver the next phase of growth for Dodd’s in the UK.
TLDC Chief Executive Killian O’Sullivan speaking about the new partnership said:
“To grow It was key for us that we find a partner who shared our values regarding spirits education, inspiring bartenders and who wanted to take our range of spirits to consumers beyond London. Great Britain is a demanding and challenging market. BBB are share our values and understand how to address these challenges. We clicked with the BBB team immediately and our approach to building brands is very similar.”
Dodd's Organic Gin
This organic gin is uniquely crafted using a proprietary distillation method; Dodd’s Gin is not just a testament to the eponym, but to all champions of innovation. We distil the lion’s share of our organic ingredients in ‘Christina’, a traditional 140-litre copper alembic, but reserve the more delicate botanicals for our state-of-the-art cold vacuum still, ‘Little Albion’. The two spirits are then married for several weeks before being bottled and labelled by hand. Botanical List: Juniper, Angelica, London Honey, Limes, Green Cardamon, Black Cardamon, Red Raspberry Leaf, Bay Leaf
Organic Dry Gin 49.9% ABV
Dodd's Organic Old Tom Gin
