Bimber is a fast growing, innovative and award winning distillery producing high quality spirits based in West London.  We only use natural ingredients and traditional methods to craft a range spirits, including different Vodkas & Gin, and have already received multiple awards from the International Spirits Challenge & the International Wine & Spirits Competition. You can find our spirits in some of London’s best on-trade and retail outlets.

We are one of the first London distilleries to produce Single Malt Whisky for over a century. Our English barley is carefully selected before malting, then it is mashed, fermented and distilled in our two copper pot stills. We age our new-make spirit in four different cask types: ex-Bourbon, ex-Pedro Ximenez, ex-Port & virgin American oak. The first batches will become The London Single Malt whisky in June 2019.

This is a great time join a rapidly expanding company with some exciting plans for the next twelve months.  Do you want to help shape the future of London’s distilling history?

Inspired by tradition.  Crafted in London.  This is Bimber.
