Our Brewers and Distillers
Crate is an unstoppable force in the brewing world. Starting canal side in Hackey Wick brewing 1,600 litres per week, in a few short years they have grown into a brew team of seven and are now stocked in boutique pubs and stores across the UK. Crate has earned its reputation for cracking craft beers and wood-fired soughdough pizza served on site. With their stylish branding they are a perfect EGO match.
The boys at Villages are newer to the brewing scene but packed full of talent. Recently celebrating their 3rd birthday, their star rising fast. Incredibly passionate about their brews, lovingly crafted into refreshing and intricate flavours. EGO is lucky to partner with Villages, as the vast majority of their stock is sold in their local South East London neighbourhood of Deptford. The village is a whole lot cooler with these boys on the scene.
Nirvana was started by a beer loving family with a mission to make those who don't drink feel included in social settings. Another fresh brand, born in 2017 and located in Leyton, Nirvana recognises the growing movement of people having a good time but keeping their senses intact. Nobody wants a drunken selfie on Insta.
Started by an Aussie who moved to East London and fell in love with the gin scene. The gin is produced in a traditional manner using alembic copper stills. This makes their gin extra tasty, providing a distinctive smooth, clean taste from distillation. Add a logo by East London Tattooist, Mo Coppoletta, paying homage to 1930s prohibition, this gin pushes boundaries.
With the base motto of 'What to drink, when you're not drinking' Seedlip was always going to be ground breaking in a world of soda and lime and sugary soft drinks. Born out of a UK kitchen, aromatic Spice 94 debuted in Selfridge's in late 2015 with its first batch of 1,000 bottles sold out in three weeks. A new way to 'drink' was officially born.
Square Root Soda Co.
Starting out of a kitchen in 2012, Square Root sold ginger beer at a local farmer's market. As demand for their ginger beer grew, they decided to trial new flavours using premium ingredients, and added a 1920s delivery tricycle (named Elsie) to cart their drinks to thirsty chaps and gals across London. Square Root Soda is made with love and care.
