Established in 2009, Sipsmith is the brainchild of Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall, ex- Fuller Brewing and Diageo respectively. Distiller Jared Brown heads the distilling team.
It has been almost 200 years since a copper pot still was operating in London until Sipsmith commissioned theirs named “Prudence” spearheading the resurgence in small batch spirits and the pure artistry of distillation. Sipsmith Independent Spirits produces a stunning range of small-batch gins, vodkas, liqueurs and cups.
Sipsmith London Dry Gin
The quintessential expression of a classic, traditional London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic – smooth enough for a Martini, but rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T. Tasting notes Floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness. Dry juniper leads, then reveals lemon tart & orange marmalade before all the Flavours harmonise. Dryness leads, with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.DOWNLOAD
Very Junipery Over Proof. At 57.7%, the VJOP boasts amplified Juniper in a surprisingly smooth gin. Imagining the botanicals as components in an orchestra, here we have taken the lead instrument, juniper, and amplified its presence in the ensemble, and then raised the decibels by increasing the proof alcohol. The result is our very own symphony in 'J' major. Tasting Notes Junipery pine and cedarwood dominate with hints of zesty orange. BIG juniper upfront with rich spice and notes of dark chocolate. Long and dry with a lovely balance as the juniper shines.DOWNLOAD
Sipsmith Sloe Gin
Wild sloe berries are macerated in Sipsmith’s award-winning London Dry Gin. Subtle, complex and bursting with flavour. First we distilled our award-winning London Dry Gin in our copper still. Then we left it to rest on wild sloe berries, hand-picked in the autumn. The result is a truly handmade sloe gin that is subtle, complex and bursting with flavour. Tasting Notes Gorgeous redcurrant and ripe winter fruits with stone-fruit almond. Cassis comes through with soft cherry hints and a rounded fruitiness. Velvety mouth feel and balanced sweetness.DOWNLOAD
Sipsmith London Cup
Based on our award winning London Dry Gin, London Cup is the perfect summer sip for gin lovers. A host of carefully selected summery ingredients, including infusions of Earl Grey tea, lemon verbena (grown in Jared's garden) cucumber, vermouth and a touch of bitters are blended together to create a deliciously refreshing and sophisticated summer gin sip. More herbal than purely fruity, with cucumber to the fore and a dry, very slightly bitter edge. Top up with ice-cold lemonade, mint and/or lemon.DOWNLOAD
