The City is it the oldest, most historic part of London. It is the world’s leading international financial and business centre with the unusual ratio of 33 times more workers than residents. Established in around AD50, seven years after the Romans invaded Britain, the City, or Square Mile as it has become known, is the place from which modern-day London grew.

Alongside, in 1860 Balls Brothers of London was established. Londoners and brothers Austin and Henry Balls started importing the finest ports from overseas and introducing Londoners to new tastes and ways.  Londoners have always been looking out for the ‘new and exciting’…
