Four members of the Jenever Guild of the Golden Glass from Schiedam in the Netherlands were invited as guests of the Worshipful Company of Distillers to London for the April dinner in Vintners’ Hall.
Following the visit of a group from the Livery to Schiedam last year and the inauguration of IPM Richard Watling and PM David Raines as Knights of the Guild, an invitation was extended to four members of the Guild to attend the April dinner
The following day a guided visit to the Guildhall was arranged.
Liveryman Jonathan Clark gave our guests the opportunity to make their own gin according to their individually selected recipe at the City of London Distillery.
The magnificent weather on the day played its part and out guests enjoyed a panoramic view of London from the top of One New Change next to St Paul’s Cathedral before enjoying a convivial lunch.
It is planned to stay in touch with the Guild and have regular exchanges between the two companies.
