Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin
In Stock - 3 available
In a nutshell:
A limited edition version of Sipsmith's London Dry Gin that's been distilled with real strawberries.
One of Sipsmith's 'Sipping Series' limited edition gins this has been distilled with the 2020 strawberry harvest from Hugh Lowe Farms in Kent, the exclusive grower for Wimbledon - and where the strawberries would otherwise have been destined for - together with a hint of English mint. With a perfectly balanced flavour it's delightfully versatile and makes a delightfully summery twist on a G&T with a winning garnish of a freshly sliced strawberry.
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.
