Sipsmith Small Batch London Dry Gin
Produced in the workshop previously used by the late, great Michael Jackson (whisky writer), 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 the installation, Prudence was the first copper pot still to be brought to life in London for over 200 years. 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. 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 & orange marmalade, before all the flavours harmonise. Dryness leads, with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.
