London copper pot revival.

 
Sipsmith is a London-based distillery that operates with a beautiful 300 litre copper-pot still called Prudence. They were the first to launch under licence in London, some 200 years ago. Jared Brown, Sipsmith master distiller, crafts each product personally, in batches never larger than 500 bottles a time. The outcome is a truly stunning spirit – smooth, full of character and true intensity of flavour.
 
Sipsmith sources the finest English Barley for their London Dry Gin and spices it up with 10 carefully selected botanicals. Finally, the heart is blended with exceptionally pure water of Lydwell spring, one of River Thames’ sources. The final product is a very sophisticated interpretation of the classic London Dry Gin style.
 
Tasting Notes
 
Appearance / Colour
Crystal clear.
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Honey with ripe fruits and a little yeasty. Nutty undertones with a hint of chocolate and grape jam.
 
Flavour / Taste / Palate
A 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 and a hint of lemon tart emerging.

Flavour Spiral
Lemon tart, honey, orange, barley, zesty, spicy, syrup, grape, marmelade. 
 
Cocktail know-how:
 
Bee's Knees
Honey and ginger combine for a refreshing and zingy gin sour. Balance - the perfect parity of sweet and sour - is key here, so all the ingredients mesh without any one flavour dominating.
 
- 1 1/2 ounces / 50 ml of Dry Gin
- 3/4 ounce / 25 ml of strained, freshly squeezed lemon juice
- 3/4 ounce / 25 ml of honey syrup (1/2 cup warm water mixed with 1/2 cup honey, acacia or wildflower)
- orange twist, for garnish 
 
1. Combine the gin, lemon juice, and honey syrup in a cocktail shaker, fill the shaker three-quarters full with ice cubes,and shake vigorously until thoroughly chilled, 15 seconds.
2. Strain into a martini glass and garnish with the orange twist.

Robert
Uuuuu
Scott
I can definitely tell this gin came from barley. It has an earthy, dry nose that is somewhat like whiskey. It's definitely dry with spicy juniper, like the descriptions says.
Chris
A little sharp when neat. Mixes nicely with Fever Tree but not so well with Schweppes.
Virgil
Great dry gin. A little sharp, but heavy in juniper scent and taste.

This is a really great gin! Perfect in a dry martini where you can taste every layer of flavor this gin has to offer.
