A visit to The London Distillery Company in Battersea

Having met the LDC team at Imbibe Live, at Olympia, I paid a visit to their headquarters in Battersea. They offered me the chance to see where they make their artisan Spirits and the process of how they get from sampling & research to the final bottled product (a process not dissimilar to that of designing and making furniture). Seeing the equipment provided an obvious material palette and the team offered plenty of expert insight into what should be included in my Spirit Cabinet.

Many thanks to Darren, Joseph & Graham for their time and help.

When there's no paper around, you just have to use whatever's close to hand.

Needed to sketch out my idea for a exhibition piece but was lacking any paper, so step-up MDF to save the day. Its actually a very nice surface to draw on. I've chosen to design & make a drinks cabinet: specifically, Spirits cabinet that shows off the best of British design, Materials & distilleries.
