Produced in the workshop previously used by the late, great Michael Jackson (whisky writer, not Moonwalker), 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 her installation, Prudence was the first copper pot still to be brought to life in London for over 200 years.
Sipsmith London Dry Gin is distilled with 10 botanicals carefully selected for an even drier balance than a classic London Dry Gin.
Nose: Floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness.
Palate: Gentle mouthfeel, with initial dry juniper joined by growing sweetness, showing lemon tart & orange marmalade, garnished by a wave of fresh lemon zest, followed by bolder juniper & light dryness, before all the flavours harmonise into one integrated taste.
Finish: Dryness leads, with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.
