Juniper overloading...woohoo.  
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.
 
If there was ever a question as to the feelings of Sipsmith towards the juniper berry, it has been answered by this Gin. VJOP means “Very Juniper Over Proof” and is the Gin that was created to answer every Gin lover’s prayers for a juniperier juniper based Gin. To make this drink, juniper is added at three different stages in the distillation process. 
 
This includes a maceration period, added juniper in the pot still and vapour-infused juniper in their specially made Carter Head. Is that enough juniper for you now? Well it had better be, because there aren’t a lot of Gins with such high concentrations of the berry and if you’re into your juniper, this is definitely the way forward.

Appearance / Colour
Crystal Clear
 
Smell / Nose / Aroma
Juniper and pine needles that have freshly fallen on some coriander
 
Flavour / Taste / Palate
A hefty kick of juniper surrounded by smatterings of citrus fruits and a little hint of pepper
 
Finish
The force of the juniper can still be tasted and lasts long enough to pick out more spicy pepper and a little burst of dried fruit"

Constance, the latest arrival to the Sipsmith family and largest of their stills, can produce around 1,500l of Sipsmith Gin per day.
Hardcore Gin lovers say the word Martini should never be preceded by Vodka, lobster, or pomegranate. They say the original and the only real Martini consists of Gin, Vermouth & olives, period!
As with many other Spirits, Gin was originally intended to be used as a medicine—to battle malaria.
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.
As producers try to develop new styles and flavors of Gin, to push the category and find a niche, the need for trying new methods of extracting flavors, as well as using more unusual botanicals, has grown.

One such way is the vacuum distillation method, when the redistillation of botanicals takes place in a vacuum.
How much Tonic is in a Gin & Tonic? The ideal proportions for a perfect Gin & Tonic is one part Gin and two parts Tonic.
