DEATH’S DOOR COMES TO EAST LONDON
East London Liquor Company and Death’s Door Spirits of Wisconsin, last month announced a collaborative distillation project to take place on Friday 9 October, 2015 and this one-off is still available! The respective head distillers Tom Hills and Brian Ellison produced a single gin batch of 150 bottles in honour of London Cocktail Week, using Death’s Door signature three botanicals – juniper, coriander and fennel from the USA – and East London’s 100% British wheat distillate.
Available through Master of Malt, the extremely limited bottles are numbered and adorned with a special label signed by both of the innovative, expert distillers.
Founder and President of Death’s Door Distillery, Ellison says; “Our company was created on collaboration when we began working with the farmers on Washington Island (Wis.) in 2005 to grow our organic hard red winter wheat and harvesting wild juniper berries. Fast-forward to October 2015 when we have the opportunity to distil with one of the newest and most intriguing gin distilleries in the UK on a single batch gin. It is an exciting opportunity, and we invite the industry to join us to celebrate this unique partnership.”
Founder of East London Liquor Company, Alex Wolpert says, “We are excited to have created this limited edition gin with the incredible team at Death’s Door Spirits. This is a perfectly matched partnership, with both distilleries placing value on exceptional quality, independence, innovation and honesty”.
