Worshipful Company of Distillers
The Worshipful Company of Distillers
is one of the Livery Companies
of the City of London
. The Distillers were incorporated under a Royal Charter
in 1638. They were empowered to regulate and supervise the production of spirits and liquors. Now, however, it does not retain such powers. Instead, it supports the distilling industry by offering distilling scholarships.
The Distillers' Company ranks sixty-ninth in the order of precedence for Livery Companies. Its motto is Drop as Rain, Distil as Dew.
