SINGLE MALT LONDON WHISKY
The seeds were sown for Bimber three generations ago in communist-era Poland, where Darius, our founder and master distiller’s grandfather, distilled his own spirits, known as moonshine. This craft was carefully perfected and passed through the generations to Darius who learnt the art of distillation from a very young age.
This rich distilling heritage has shaped and influenced our approach to spirit making. We are proud of our past and pay tribute to it with our name Bimber, which means moonshine in Polish.
The founders of Bimber, Darius and Ewelina, emigrated from Poland to London in 2003 and created a successful business in West London. However, Darius’s passion for whisky and distilling were always at the forefront of his mind, and when the opportunity arose to establish a whisky distillery in 2015, he knew he had to go for it.
Bimber’s first casks were laid on the 26th May 2016, and we have been patiently awaiting our first whisky since. In September 2019, the next chapter of our exciting story begins. We are launching one of the first single-malt whiskies to be produced in London for over a century. Bimber London Single Malt is going to be a new style of highly drinkable whisky, light, accessible, fruity and handcrafted with passion.
