Top 10 things to know about the East London Liquor Company:

1) This is not a bar. The East London Liquor Company is a cathedral to quality drinking and well sourced drinks. If it had a patron saint, it would be Keith Floyd (R.I.P). Filament bulb lighting has the same glow as church candles. Behind the alter, sorry, bar are two huge copper stills making ethereal holy spirits. More specifically gins, vodka and in the future, whiskey.
 
2) The East London Liquor Company vaulted many legal hurdles to become the only distillery north of the river. Ask nicely and you might even get a tour of the almighty equipment including a temperamental Italian bottling contraption.
 
3) The headless horse on the bottle label? Not a mafia symbol but a macabre ode to the bar’s former status as a glue factory. 

4) Our high priest of the cocktail was Mikey, barman and alchemist. He makes liqueurs from the herbs that grow in the bar’s garden to concoct creations far beyond the average imagination – Piccolo Black is whiskey with home pickled beetroot. 

5) There are the classic cocktails you desire (the Negroni was heavenly), but let the bar folk improvise and you’ll be rewarded. Mikey told us that he loves doing “crazy barman sh*t.”

6) There are three distinctly different gins on offer; our favourite one was refreshing and piquant, made with grapefruit peel. The small batch grain vodka is smooth and surprisingly good on it’s own. You can certainly taste the aromatics. 

7) There is a short food menu with posh toasties, cured meats and cheese that complement the drinks and soak up the industrial amounts being imbibed.

8) After a trip to California (all in the name of research), the team discovered small batch rums and whiskeys made from ingredients found in the US. Any fans of whiskey should try the salt-water fermented single malt, which is briny, peaty and rich. 

9) If, like my fellow bar parishioner, you aren’t crazy about supping on neat spirits or cocktails then hidden under the bar are draught beers, carefully chosen and local (everything here is as local as possible, not easy in Hackney).

10) With plans to open a shop, the East London Liquor company is well worth the pilgrimage to this part of town, especially for dedicated worshipers at the alter of high quality liquid fun.
