Crafted in honour of Britain’s fragrant botanicals, this refreshing gin is designed to be sipped al fresco.

If you’re lucky enough to have a garden, the season of sizzling barbecues and picnics on petal-strewn lawns has finally arrived (even if this isn’t how we imagined it). It’s also the time of year when our resident green-fingered gardeners – Distillery Manager Reece and Master Distiller Jared – see their flowerbeds, vegetable patches and herb gardens burst into life, and with more time than usual to be pottering in the garden, this year is bringing a luscious yield.

In honour of Britain’s fragrant botanicals, we came up with this summertime gin featuring basil, lemon thyme, coriander, fennel and rosemary. Step into your own herb garden by pouring a 50ml serve into an ice-filled highball glass and combine with Mediterranean tonic. Top it off with a basil leaf, then take a sip and close your eyes. You can almost hear bees buzzing between blooms under the summer sun.

The Nose:Green grass with a delicate light citrus.

The Palate: Sweet herbal notes, light minty freshness, refreshing citrus.

The Finish: Long vegetal herbal notes, savoury and moreish

  2. This is a beautifully crafted gin, which I absolutely love. I think it could do with a minor reduction the sweetness but otherwise a firm favourite with me. Should this gin find a permanent place In the SS family it would be one of those gins I would keep stocked in the cupboard!

  3. You have given me a real problem with this gin! I desperately want to drink it, but I don’t want it to run out!
    A really unusual and complex gin. Absolutely inspired – fantastic!
    In a crowded market of similar London Dry Gins, I like to have a collection of spirits with unusual and different character and aromatic combinations.
    English Herb Garden would take its place alongside my other firm favourites.
    I would definitely buy this for myself and to gift to others if it was available again.

  4. I have been a sipping society member for almost 2 years and I have to say this is nicest gin to date. The Garden Lady cocktail was absolutely lovely, summery, refreshing and very very drinkable. The best gin yet!

  5. Really like this one – very herbal and did evoke an English garden! Lovely for summer, I would definitely buy this if it was on the shelves.

  6. I’m not convinced that these herbs should be used in a gin. On a summery evening I might order a glass but certainly wouldn’t buy a bottle.

  7. I have been a Sipsmith member for 2.5 years. This is my favourite gin so far. This would definitely be on my ‘have all of the time gin’. This has a very fresh flavour, not too sweet slightly herby – delicate and not overpowering. Loved the English Lady cocktail. Unfortunately the bottle is now finished. I am hoping there will be more. Thank you Sips Smith for this great new Gin.

  8. I love this gin! Very refreshing and perfect for summer. I was a little wary as I tend to prefer sweet/fruity gins over the more savoury/herbal ones but this has converted me. I would definitely purchase a bottle of this, and can see it becoming a staple of my gin cupboard if it was made available.

  9. Just the most wonderfully complex and yet refreshingly simple (I know, oxymoron) gin. I have lots and lots of different gins of various flavours etc., this I would buy over and over.f Full bottles on demand please!

  11. Absolutely delicious, right up my street. Beautiful herby flavours.
    I would definitely buy this gin if it was in production

  12. WOW, This is a fantastic Gin, adding Basil to it was a lovely touch. You need to make more of this. I’m sure it would be a winner, it has the Difference factor which is always a good talking point.
