Aroma / Nose / 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 flavours harmonise into one integrated taste.
Dryness leads, with spicy juniper and a hint of lemon tart emerging.

Top reviews for Sipsmith London Dry Gin:
— The best of the best
— This is a bright and juicy gin. Very superior and everything gin should be. Smooth, with a tartiness, followed with a juicy juniper flavor. Many different gins like to incorporate exotic botanicals and flavors. Sipsmith simply maintains what a straightforward gin should taste like, and lives up to what a classic London dry gin should be. Versatile, perfect for a martini, or good enough neat. You really can't go wrong with this gin...
Member Reviews and Ratings of Sipsmith London Dry Gin
Heavy Juniper Nose , Citrus/Juniper Effervescence, thick mouthfeel on the body. Dry clean Finish
Very clean and bright flavors. Nothing particularly exotic here but distinct and smooth. Excellent with everything I have mixed it with. I will buy this one again.
Fresh scent with not too harsh taste. Subtle flavors make it hard to pick out particular notes but goes down smooth without lingering.
Sweet citrus. Oily body
Very smooth. Fair amount of flavor. On the slightly sweeter side for a gin. Excellent choice
A very good dram. Worth the bottle.
No clue. Never got my order. Still no refund. Avoid this company like the plague.
I’m not big on gin, but this is pretty good. It’s not overly heavy on the juniper and has botanical and even floral notes underneath.
I'm not a huge Gin person, but my significant other is. This drink, however, was an exceptional drink. We both enjoyed it greatly. She would have preferred a stronger Juniper flavor, so if you're looking for STRONG Juniper this probably isn't for you.
I did enjoy it especially for not being a gin fan, unfortunately I made a martini with it and added bleu cheese olives and juice. It was very tasty and did not have the traditional piney taste it as mediocre gins do. If I wanted a bottle of gin for my bar this would make the list.
The best of the best
My gin of choice. Granted, I'll take a single malt Highland any day of the week but for a Gin and Tonic? I will always have a bottle of Sipsmith on hand. The juniper is not too heavy and there is a refreshing hint of citrus to accompany the finish. For the price point, you will be hard pressed to beat this bottle of Gin.
Simply the best
Pretty good at a decent price.

Perfectly juniper forward smooth gin.
very smooth and clean tasting, sweet and decently strong, but not overpowering
Sweet smooth taste I didn't expect from a gin. Enjoyed drinking it on ice, in tonic water I liked it less which might have more to do with the tonic water
I am not a Gin drinker but this was not bad. Nothing like what I remember Gin being.
Very nice. Excellent flavor. Likes to hang out on the taste buds for a bit. Found myself enjoying it more and more as it warmed up a bit.
A really nice gin with a decent tonic from Fever Tree.
A great gin to enjoy with a either straight up or with a splash of tonic. The lemon is infused wonderfully
Thought that I was "gin-ed" out from too many youthful experiences with cheap gin but Sipsmith has reconstituted the belief that gin is drinkable and enjoyable. Sipsmith London Dry Gin is very enjoyable, light on the palate yet flavorful, dry but not arid, and, with dry vermouth, made an excellent "real" Martini. Excellent choice.
Guess it taste gin, no wow experience.
Good for parties, fresh and good
Very good gin.
Goes down easy!
Very light and fragrant. The nose was smelled strongly of rubbing alcohol, but the taste was very mild
Fantastic Gin. I've never been able to just sip gin ever. Until now.
This is a fantastic gin. Best sipping gin I've ever had.
Lemon and honey are big on the pallet. This is a great gin by itself which is new to me... really enjoyed it
One of the better gins I've ever had.
Best. Gin. Ever. Period.
One of the best gins I've ever tasted! Citrus and grape!
My favorite gin! Having it the first time about 4 years ago in a pub in Hammersmith. We were there for an Adam Ant concert. Told the bartender that I wanted a local gin and he brought me and my wife Sipsmith, and I was hooked!
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.
A little sharp when neat. Mixes nicely with Fever Tree but not so well with Schweppes.
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.
One of my new treasires. Nice original gin. Artisanal product.
My "go to" Gin. Very traditional with good Juniper kick.
