A quintessentially classic London Dry Gin that would stand the test of time.

Flaviar community agrees: 
Sipsmith London Dry was the winner of the Flaviar Community Award 2017 in its respective category! Sipsmith represents a collective of purist craft distillers, whose take on classic London Dry Gin is one of the very best you can possibly get. Anywhere.

Sipsmith’s Distillery is based in Hammersmith, London in the same building that was home to Michael Jackson (the one esteemed for his Whisky expertise, not moonwalking) and a microbrewery. This historic site’s use has been resurrected by Sipsmiths Fairfax, Sam and Jared and blessed with a coppery soul, the beautiful Lady Prudence still. Prudence is a traditional copper pot still that can distill both Vodka and Gin — made by the Christian Carl family in Germany, she’s a rather special lady.

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 flavor.

They source 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. Sounds damned mouth-watering. With a flavor imagination like this, it's no wonder that Sipsmiths created a Gin that's perfect for mixing and general playfulness — make sure you don't miss out on it!

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 flavor 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.

Appearance / Color
Crystal clear

Nose / Aroma / Smell
Honey with ripe fruits and a little yeasty. Nutty undertones with a hint of chocolate and grape jam.

Flavor / 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 flavors harmonise into one integrated taste. 

Finish
Dryness leads, with spicy juniper and a hint of lemon tart emerging.

Gin was so cheap and popular in London in the first half of the 18th century, an epidemic of drunkenness engulfed the city. There were 7,000 Gin shops by 1730 and wasted Londoners fell victim to acts of violence and widespread addiction. The government had to step in with an emergency legislation to stop the so-called "Gin Craze".
Constance, the latest arrival to the Sipsmith family and largest of their stills, can produce around 1,500l of Sipsmith Gin per day.
Few Gin distillers make their own alcohol. Gin usually starts with neutral Spirit: A commodity that distillers buy in bulk. It’s what the distiller does with this commodity in the flavor-infusing process that makes each Gin different.
Is Gin gluten free? Sort of. While Gin is made from a grain Spirit, which could include wheat, barley or even rye, some experts say that it’s still suitable for those on gluten-free diets due to being distilled. The distillation process removes enough of the gluten protein in the drink to make it gluten-free. But proceed with caution.
