From ginful festivals to seasonal cocktails made with our uncompromisingly handcrafted gin, from bar quality G&Ts for sipping on the go to ginny tipples sipped on sunny bars and terraces, here’s how to celebrate the summer with Sipsmith.
Summer is the season for sipping—and there are plenty of ways to celebrate with us this year. Seek out our handcrafted tipples at a summer festival, host a garden party (complete with a multitude of gin cocktails to go around), enjoy our gin at venues as varied as Lord’s Cricket Ground and the Royal Opera House—or simply grab a chilled can of our bar-quality, ready-to-drink gin for refreshment on the go. No matter where the summer takes you, Sipsmith makes the season as festive as can be.
It isn’t truly summer until you’ve planned a day out—or a weekend away—at a festival. Happily, we’ll be making appearances at a number of top-notch events all season long. Seek out our pop-up Gin Palace at The Big Feastival for ice-cold drinks and jazz-age ambiance; sip a G&T in style as you watch the rowing at Henley; or pair a cocktail with live music, lakeside yoga classes, and tempting bites at Wilderness. Find out more about these events, and other upcoming gin festival appearances, here.
Just in time for summer, our brand-new, Ready-to-Drink Gin and Tonics mean you can enjoy a quenching, ginful tipple almost anywhere the season takes you. From festivals to camping excursions, garden parties to train journeys, simply pop a chilled, copper-hued can in your bag and enjoy on the go. Made with a base of our exceptionally crafted London Dry Gin, this bar-quality gin and tonic is unlike any other gin in a can you’ve had before.
