Description

The quintessential expression of a classic, traditional London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic – smooth enough for a Martini, yet rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T.

The Nose

Floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness.

The Finish

Dryness leads, with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.

Produced in the workshop previously used by the late, great Michael Jackson (whisky writer, not Moonwalker), this super-small-batch artisinal Gin is flavoured with restraint, making it easier for the natural quality of the spirit to shine through.

Distilled in a marvellously compact pot still / column still combo named Prudence, Sipsmith epitomises distilling on a truly artisinal scale. At the time of her installation, Prudence was the first copper pot still to be brought to life in London for over 200 years.

In 2009 Sam Glasworthy, Fairfax Hall and Jared Brown teamed up with a still named Prudence, and launched perhaps the most iconic gin of craft renaissance in London. Sipsmith London Dry Gin was distilled on the first copper still in London in nearly two centuries. In some ways, Sipsmith Gin was the beginning of Modern gin in London.

Sipsmith London Dry Gin stays true to those roots. It begins from a base spirit of wheat, and opts for a fairly traditional botanical bill: angelica, coriander, licorice [seem familiar?]. It’s made with a single shot method of distillation— meaning they only dilute with water, not additional neutral spirit. Sipsmith Distillery was one of the first distilleries of the craft gin renaissance to talk about the single shot vs. multi-shot approach and are a big reason why there’s entire classes devoted to to the subject.

Tasting Notes

Sipsmith London Dry Gin is classic on the nose, but distinctive in its own right. Orange zest dripped with warmed orange blossom honey lends complexity to a nose that has a traditional piney juniper with slight hints of angelica root musk and licorice.

The palate of Sipsmith Gin unfolds in three waves. Juniper with an expressed pine character comes on early, with bright lemon curd, mandarin flesh and citrus mid-palate.
