SIPSMITH ORANGE & CACAO GIN
UNCOMPROMISING QUALITY & CHARACTER
Available at Test Match Hotel from 1st July. Don't miss out!
It all began in 2009, in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith, London. Two childhood friends, Fairfax and Sam, had an unwavering belief in things well made - the way they used to be, the way they should be. So they set up London’s first traditional copper distillery since 1820, and in doing so overturned an age-old gin law that had dated back to 1751.
Their mission was simple: to bring London Dry Gin of truly uncompromising quality and character, back to the city where it first earned its name. Every bottle of Sipsmith is hand-crafted in genuinely small batches. Every drop of every batch is lovingly laboured over by hand, by our dedicated Distillers. No regimented timings, no automatic cuts, just a craftsman’s flair and a passion for gin well made. We believe this is the only way to craft spirits of this quality
It’s zesty, it’s chocolatey and it’s unmistakably junipery. Citrus gins have been around for centuries, but this modern take is also inspired by the popular flavour combination of chocolate and orange. Here, we dial up the juniper and using an age-old tradition, sweeten with plenty of liquorish.
Next we add an array of botanicals from orange blossom to cacao nibs, before resting the gin on fresh orange zest for a wonderfully complex, citrus gin. Pour 50ml over ice, top with premium tonic and garnish with a wheel of orange for a refreshingly zesty G&T.
The Nose: Zesty marmalade balanced with sweet cacao & orange blossom
The Palate: Rich dark chocolate with candied orange and Madagascan vanilla
The Finish: A medley of fresh pine and ginger spice topped with a biscuit sweetness
