Went here for a few drinks as it looked good ended up staying all night. Great atmosphere and the bar staff were terrific (especially Tony) who took time to talk about the gins and the company and created cocktails off the menu whatever we wanted. Had some nibbles as well and food was great too. One of my new favourite places.

A group of us, who love exploring new gin places, decided to try this wonderful sounding place - we were sorely disappointed!
First of all, we arrived to find the place empty except for 2 other parties. The waiter asked us if we’d reserved a table. His manner was rude, dismissive and superior! Not one table had a “reserved” sign on it. After we said we didn’t have a reservation the same, rude, waiter told us they were expecting to be really busy in a few hours. Imagine our surprise! Clearly they didn’t want our custom. I also approached the bar to ask about their own distilled gin - I wanted to buy a bottle! I asked the (not busy) barman which were their gins, he pointed at 3 bottles on the bar, said “them” and walked away. A definite sale lost!
Meanwhile my friends had ordered some nibbles. So we stayed for 1 drink and the nibbles then left. We had intended to stay longer. Our bill was over £80.
Sadly, the drinks were lovely, as were the nibbles but none of us would return there again!

great staff, lovely, decent cocktails and a range of beers, you can drink in the funky bar overlooking the distillery or outside. I have been here several times and have always found it to have a lovely, vibrant atmosphere. They have also tables for eating around the shop and bar. Friends ate here but I did not (they did say it was delicious)

Their shop sells the gin they distill infused with herbs or spices and make wonderful presents.

I was lucky enough to attend one of East London Liquor Company's famous 'Gin Tours'. The tour guide was brilliant in every way, (I think his name was Alexander) welcoming every person and giving extensive talks on the history of gin production and current manufacturing processes. It was endearing from beginning to end thanks to the wonderful variety of gins to taste, the characterful premises and the expertise and the care that our tour guide took over making everybody's experience as enjoyable and informative as possible during tasting. This event is suitable for all kinds of adult parties. It was certainly a very special treat for me.

Walk around Victoria Park followed by a visit to this place. Love the idea of a nice range of gins in a distillery for the stuff. Cool vibe and great drinks. Think the poor bartender thought we were city traders on day off as offered to show us around and the specialist stuff. We declined but I liked the place.
