East London Liquor Company
East London Liquor Company London Rye Whisky 47% 70cl
Founded in 2014 by bartender Alex Wolpert, the East London Liquor Company distills from grain to glass in a converted glue factory in Bow Wharf. The brand screams 'craft distillery' but the team actually hate the term, believing it diminishes the hard work put in to create great tasting spirits.
With a mashbill of 55% malted rye and 45% unmalted rye and featuring maturation in a variety of casks including regenerated oak, Hungarian oak, American oak and barrels that previously held brandy, this is one of the most unusual rye whiskies I've had in a LONG time.
The nose is actually quite astringent, with hints of petrol, dill and super-dry white wine. I'll be honest, it threw me when I initially nosed it, not expecting much from the palate. But the palate is choc full of dark chocolate orange Ovaltine notes - it's fruity but rich and packed with complexity. Absolutely a game of two halves, this is a belter for an Old Fashioned with orange bitters to accentuate that citrus note even more.
