Sipsmith Sloe Gin - London, England
A blend of ten classic gin botanicals that include Orris root, lemon peel, ground almond and juniper, master distiller Jared Brown includes licorice root to soften the tannins of the other botanicals and coriander seed and angelica root which lend traditional notes associated with London dry gin.
After years working in the drinks industry, Sipsmith struck out on their own to pursue their passion for beautifully handmade spirits. They call themselves “sip-smiths” to celebrate the craft of distillation and their artisanal methods.
Sipsmith likes to think buildings have a soul. Theirs, in Hammersmith, west London, was once home to the esteemed whisky expert Michael Jackson, and before that, was the micro-brewery for a local pub. Now it is where they craft and hone their artisanal spirits. It is as if it knew what it wanted to be all along.
