City of London Christopher Wren Gin is “No 2” in a range of gins made by the City of London Distillery (aka COLD). The Christopher Wren Gin sports a “No 2” on the neck label and completes the range along with No 1 Dry Gin, No 3 Old Tom, No 4 Sloe Gin and No 5 Square Mile London Dry Gin. The City of London has always been associated with the Gin Craze of the 18th Century when there were many gin shops and gin distilleries in the city. Indeed, in 1743 it is estimated England was drinking 10 litres of gin per person per year! However the City of London did not have a gin distillery for nearly 200 years when the City of London Distillery opened in 2012.

The distillery was opened on the 20th December 2012 and is located inside Jonathan Clark’s cocktail bar in Bride Lane, just off Fleet Street, and forms an unusual backdrop to the bar where it sits behind floor to ceiling bomb-proof glass. The distillery has 2 copper pot stills made by the still manufacture CARL from  Stuttgart, Germany named Clarissa and Jennifer after television chefs The Two Fat Ladies. Jonathan is the head distiller but the City of London Christopher Wren Gin was designed by bona fide gin legend, Tom Nichol, formerly the Master Distiller of Tanquery. This fantastic gin only has 5 botanicals and is testament to the fact that sometimes less it more. The botanicals are juniper, coriander, angelica root, liquorice and sweet orange. It is bottled at 45.3% and is marketed as a “cocktail gin”.

The City of London Distillery now has a new fantastic bottle design which reflects the dome of St Paul’s Cathedral (designed, of course, by Sir Christopher Wren) in both the shoulder and the punt of the bottles.
