On 17 January 2020, the British Honey Company (BHC) announced to TLDC shareholders that, following discussions with administrators to purchase some TLDC assets, it had taken over the distillery operations. The BHC founders then incorporated a new business on 20 January 2020 as The London Distillery Company (BHC) Ltd.
The products are now made to the same original recipe in Buckinghamshire, just outside of London.
January 2020, the company went into administration. The British Honey Company purchased the Dodd’s Gin and Rye brands.
official information by The British Honey Company:
In 2020 we acquired the brands of the London Distillery Company (LDC) - Dodd's Gins and its Rye Whiskey LV-1767 Edition. We are delighted to have these exceptional spirits in our portfolio, which are now made to the same original recipe and to our highest quality standards by our Master Distiller Jamie Baggott and former LDC distiller Marzio di Rocco at our distillery in Buckinghamshire, just outside of London.
After another failed funding round by O’Sullivan in December 2019, three TLDC directors resigned and in January 2020 the company appointed Geoffrey Martin & Co as administrators.
It was bottled at 54.3% ABV, with only 251 bottles produced.
The distillery secured a railroad arch on "London's Beer Mile" on Druid Street in Bermondsey. Following the move production at the distillery was shut down for eight months while the company transferred its distilling approvals from Her Majesty's Revenue and Customs (HMRC)
In October 2015, The London Distillery Company's original location on Parkgate Road in Battersea was sold to a property developer and the business was relocated.
