An image of a bottle of the classic Sipsmith London Dry Gin

Sipsmith London Dry Gin

  • London Dry Gin
  • Ireland, 700ml

The quintessential expression of a classic, traditional London Dry Gin. On the nose, floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness. On the palate, dry juniper leads, then reveals lemon tart and orange marmalade, before all the flavours harmonise. Well-balanced finish, dryness leads, with spicy juniper and a hint of lemon tart emerging.

  • Distillery: Sipsmith
  • Type: London Dry Gin
  • Region: London, England
  • Alcohol: 41.6%
  • Volume: 700ml
  • Goes with: Ice, premium tonic, orange wedge, sprinkle of juniper berries

This super-small-batch artisinal Gin is Sipsmith’s flagship gin. It is distilled in a marvellously compact pot still/column still combo named Prudence and is a masterful blend of ten different botanicals: Juniper berries, Coriander Seed, Angelica Root, Liquorice Root, Orris Root, Ground Almond, Cassia Bark, Cinnamon, Orange Peel and Lemon Peel. As such the gin is very juniper forward, with a superb bittersweet quality, offset by an earthiness and wonderful bright citrus. Very refreshing in a gin and tonic, but also makes a mean Martini!

The epitome of a timeless and traditional London Dry Gin. Bold, complex and aromatic, smooth enough for a Martini, yet rich and balanced, perfect for a G&T. Great gift for someone special or perfect for corporate gifting too.

If you have even the slightest interest in British craft spirits (or simply just quite like a good gin), you’ll undoubtedly have heard of Sipsmith. The distillery’s founders, Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall, kicked open their doors in London in 2009, becoming the first copper pot-based distillery to do so in almost 200 years. With Master Distiller Jared Brown by their side, they launched their own spectacular gin, and soon enough a vodka and various seasonal expressions. Though it wasn’t quite as simple as that. Y’see, when the Sipsmith chaps tried to get a licence, they were planning for their Hammersmith-based outfit to be quite small indeed, which HMRC wasn’t too excited about (not the technical term, obviously). It took over two years of lobbying for the law to be changed and Sipsmith to be granted their licence. Not only did it mean they were able to start making their own drinks, it also allowed many others to open their own distilleries too! Sipsmith began in a small building on Nasymth Street which was previously a microbrewery and the office of the legendary drinks writer Michael Jackson. They soon outgrew the building and headed west to Chiswick - this building houses their first copper pot still, Prudence, as well as her sisters Constance and Patience
