The London Distillery Whisky The London Distillery Company (TLDC) builds on the traditions of the Georgian era, though with a contemporary twist. TLDC is based in a former Victorian dairy cold room in Battersea, and produces English whisky, London gin and other British spirits. Its rye whisky was the first to be distilled in London in over 100 years! The distillery has created gins in collaboration with The Royal Botanical Gardens, Kew. Experimental spirits are also released under the TESTBED brand, named after the site where the distillery was built.
