Will you be sipping Sipsmith this summer?
This week’s featured spirit is the gin which reignited London’s distilling craze - Sipsmith Gin.
THE STORY OF SIPSMITH
In a city famous for its gin, Sipsmith stands head and shoulders above the rest as our favourite for a summer G&T!
In 2009, Sipsmith were responsible for the opening of London’s first traditional copper distillery since 1820.
The idea began with two childhood friends in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith with Fairfax and Sam who held the belief that spirits should be well made in the way they used to be, focusing on creating a gin using original distillation methods with no modernised shortcuts.
With a mutual love of gin, they set out with a simple mission to bring London Dry Gin back to the city where it earned its name - and so Sipsmith was created!
Every drop of Sipsmith is handcrafted in small batches in their London distillery, with the Sipsmith range now encompassing six flavours of various strengths and a vodka.
The gin which started it all is our top pick, the quintessential London Dry Gin.
Combining 10 botanicals, including angelica root, coriander seed, cassia bark and ground almonds, the gin’s botanical blend will treat you to a spectrum of flavours from a warm and spicy start to a citrus and sweet palate to finish!
A stylish gin, perfect for when you want your G&T to be a little more special!

Each distillery has created their own perfect serves which we’ll be sharing across our Summer of Gin so you can enjoy a G&T as the distillers intended. After all, who knows the gins more than those who work creating them!
