The London Distillery has set in motion plans devised by Ralph Dodd in 1807, to produce high end spirits in London. As part of the ongoing refurbishment of the Testbed1 historic warehouses, aLL Design were appointed to redesign a portion of the building as London’s first whiskey distillery in a century.
The facility accommodates machinery that resembles something out of Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory, which enables bespoke gin as well as whiskey to be produced with a variety of ingredients. The distillery has become a vital part of Testbed1’s success, serving experimental spirits in the Doodle Bar as well as exporting Dodds gin worldwide.
