Hey Everyone,

Sure you'll most likely have see either on Facebook or Twitter that I'm in the process of trying to open the first whisky distillery in London in just over 100 years. Had a couple of meeting with investors and have been ask to prove the market a little before a meeting next week.

I've put a together a survey using Survey Monkey, which is very short and should only take no more than 3mins.

The URL is surveymonkey.com/s/…

Thanks Darren

Hey Darren, I saw the London Distillery had begun following me but didnt realise it was you behind it at first! I've done the survey, and best of luck!

Hi Everyone,

Thanks again for doing the Survey!

Just incase anyone is interested and not seen on our twitter (@londonwhisky), or our facebook page (facebook.com/pages/…) we've opened up some space for smaller investments in the distillery.

There are 50 spaces in total, but you can find more info on the TLDC site thelondondistillerycompany.com/founders-clu….

I've started looking at potential locations this week and the round should close in the next 3 weeks at the latest!

Cheers D

Hey Everyone,

Just a quick update as we're £212,000 funded, so only £38,000 to go!

We're on crowdcube.com/investment/… and the minimum investment is £500 for anyone who might be interested (business plan, etc... is on there).

Found a locationa and sent some pre-licensing bits to HMRC this week. Working on the branding, so not too far off now.

Also, here's a link to an interview with Jim at The Malted Muse about what we'll be doing and should have another interview up on Whisky Market Place in the coming weeks


Cheers Darren

@thewhiskyguy Great Idea, wouldn't source your water from the Thames though matey ;)

Like Balcones Baby Blue Whiskey shows -There is alot of merit in letting artisan enthusiasts make small batch whiskey for the Market . Best of Luck
