Darley Abbey Distillery
THE UNCOMMON THREAD – LONDON DRY GIN
We make our own gin. Please take a look over at www.darleyabbeydistillery.co.uk



ABOUT US
Whilst a wine merchant by trade (Est. 2007); in recent years we have added a wine bar with a couple of roaring fires throughout the winter & a 200 year old courtyard which we open up each spring. It is a fairly bustling place full of like-minded souls enjoying a good glass of something, in good company with great music.

The Wine Bar
Inevitably, there is a focus on wine at our bar, and we have whittled our trade wine offering of 500+ wines down to around 80 wines on the bar list at any one time. We also have six beers on draft, and many an artisan spirit including our own London Dry Gin going by the name of ‘The Uncommon Thread’ which rolls in at 44%. Talking of spirits… If you are a fan of Whisky then the ‘Cage Of Age’ may be of interest! We have a rapidly expanding range of around 60 Whiskies – and if you happen to be keen on the budding English Whisky scene, you will find plenty of examples to try here. If you are fancying an evening off the above, then we have various 0/Low options including local Kombucha Mocktails & a lovely 0% ‘Spirit’ from Pentire in Cornwall.

Food
Our artisan cheese & charcuterie board displays the wares of legendary local cheese Shop; Morgans alongside fine Italian produce from Vallebona in Wimbledon, we also sell bowls of sun-dried tomatoes, stuffed red peppers & Olives to go with your wine.

Wine Tastings (see latest tasting dates above)
We run wine tastings from our Distillery Room next door to the original wine bar. There’s always at least a couple of hours of informative fun to be had at our tastings with half a dozen interesting wines tasted alongside accompanying Charcuterie & cheese. Wines are presented by a mixture of hosts from in-house, winery representatives, sommeliers, wine educators and the occasional visiting wine-maker.

Private Hire Of The Distillery Room
The 70 seat Distillery Room is available for private bookings at certain times January to November.
For private hire enquiries, please email charles@darleyabbeywines.co.uk

Trade Partners
We are proud to work with a number of boutique wineries to provide high quality, good value wines from around the world. ‘Cheap’ we are not, but if you want an exciting wine list full of hidden gems for your customers to enjoy, give us a call & join our merry band of quality bars, restaurants & specialist shops that we supply to.

For all of the above & probably more; you can find us imbibing away in ‘The Stables’ (built in 1805) within the historic UNESCO Darley Abbey Mills World Heritage Site.
