Our distillers have captured all that’s delicious about banana bread and bottled it to create this triple banana, sweet gin.
Some people start the new year with resolutions like dry January and early morning spinning classes, but our Distiller Ellie is most definitely more of a fan of Ginuary. Being an avid baker and a skilled distiller, this year she set her mind to reducing waste. Making use of leftover bananas in the Sipsmith kitchen, inspiration struck and her delicious Banana Bread Gin was born! Fresh and dried banana plus banana peel were rested overnight on our smallest still, Cygnet, before distilling on our London Dry Gin.
To simply enjoy this decadent home comfort, simply top 50ml gin with ginger ale and garnish with a fresh orange wedge.
The Nose: Just-peeled, ripe bananas with a light, sweet spice.
The Palate: A hint of sweet banana, rich vanilla and honey.
The Finish: A long, creamy mouthfeel of light cinnamon, candied banana and a touch caramel.
