Sipsmith London Dry 700ML

This London Dry Gin was born out of a desire to see gin production return to the city where it earned its name. With a nod to traditional hand crafted production, the gin combines traditional copper pot distillation with a recipe that wouldn't look unfamiliar to an eighteenth century Master Distiller.

  • Floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness.
  • On the palate dry juniper leads, then reveals lemon tart & orange marmalade, before all the flavours harmonise.
  • Dryness leads the finish with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.

 BOTANICALS:

Juniper Berries
The fundamental ingredient that makes Sipsmith London Dry Gin taste, well, like gin! It’s the oils that we want so we macerate the berries in warm spirit overnight to burst the skins and release the essences.

Belgian Angelica Root
Similar to the orris root, angelica acts as a binding agent to promote the harmony of the other botanicals. It also adds its own dry characteristic and helps to provide the wonderfully long, dry Sipsmith finish.

Bulgarian Coriander Seed
A mellow spiciness and a long finish with hints of citrus and a hint of peppery ginger, is derived from the addition of coriander seed to the Sipsmith botanical mix.

Chinese Cassia Bark

Hailing all the way from China, and from the same family as cinnamon, cassia bark adds a hints of sweet, warm spice to the Sipsmith recipe.

Italian Orris Root
Orris root is the root of the iris flower, and delivers a delicate floral, fragrant note to our London Dry Gin whilst serving to bind the other botanicals together to deliver a harmonious flavour profile.

Spanish Ground Almond
Spanish ground almond is used to bring delicate spiciness and marzipan notes and adds depth and body to Sipsmith’s London Dry Gin.

Madagascan Cinnamon Bark
Madagascan cinnamon bark adds a delicately sweet spiciness to the botanical mix, similar to (and from the same family as) cassia, it is an essential component of the rounded Sipsmith recipe.

Spanish Liquorice Root
Liquorice root adds an attractive bittersweet undertone, and equally importantly neutralises any bitterness from other botanicals to allow their properties to shine through in Sipsmith London Dry Gin.

Lemon Peel
The other key citrus element, lemon peel adds a subtle brightness to the citrus notes of Sipsmith London Dry Gin, showing on the palate as a hint of lemon tart.

Seville Orange Peel
Grown along the streets of Seville and also known as ‘bitter orange’, this fruit has a wonderful tartness that delivers a zesty citrus note on the palate with marmalade overtones.
