Sipsmith Orange & Cacao Gin
In Stock - 2 available
In a nutshell:
Zesty and chocolately citrus gin distilled in London.
This is a new take on the citrus gin style inspired by the popular flavour combination of orange and chocolate. Along side orange blossom a good measure of liquorice is used among the botanicals to give a sweetened backdrop allowing the richness of the cacao nibs to do their thing. It's further flavoured with fresh orange zest to make a wonderfully complex citrus gin. Use it to make an Orange Collins with some fresh orange juice and soda water.
Sipsmith's story began in 2009, in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith, London. Two childhood friends, Fairfax Hall and Sam Galsworthy, had an unwavering belief in things well made - the way they used to be, the way they should be. So they set up London's first traditional copper distillery since 1820 - quite a few have since followed. Their mission was simple: to bring London Dry Gin of truly uncompromising quality and character, back to the city where it first earned its name. Every bottle of Sipsmith is hand-crafted in genuinely small batches. Every drop of every batch is lovingly laboured over by hand, by dedicated Distillers. No regimented timings, no automatic cuts, just a craftsman's flair and a passion for gin well made. They believe this is the only way to craft spirits of this quality.
the current distillery is situated in a residential street in Chiswick close to where it all started. In 2016 they were bought by the Beam Suntory group, but still operate on an pretty independent basis and true to their craft distilling beliefs.
