London Cup and Carafe
Sipsmith London Cup is a sublimely sippable punch crafted from our award-winning London Dry Gin, infused with tea, borage, lemon verbena and a host of other botanicals. Best shared with friends; in a carafe, over lashings of ice, to three parts lemonade and a lemon wheel garnish.
Burnt orange and caramel with a burst of fresh citrus
The bold juniper notes of the gin are complimented by a zesty marmalade on the palate
Notes of scorched oak and bitter-sweet spice
Also known as the starflower, the leaves of the borage plant give a fresh, almost sweet flavour reminiscent of cucumber.
Our Lemon Verbena brings sweet, fresh citrus flavours reminiscent of the finest lemons.
Rose petals give a subtle, but beautiful floral note to our London Cup, and are distilled as a single botanical and then blended to the mix.
The fundamental ingredient that makes Sipsmith Gin taste, well, like gin! It’s the oils that we want so we macerate the berries in warm spirit overnight to burst the skins and release the essences.

A gin cup inspired by the punches of 1800's London
Punch proliferated in a city gone mad for gin. After British sailors returned to London from India, they brought with them a magical potion that takes its name from the Hindi word 'panch,' meaning five, and named for its five flavour components (spirit, sweet, dilution, citrus, spice, bitter). Our Sipsmith London Cup is inspired by these punches of old and blends tea, lemon verbena and borage with a selection of vermouth and bitters, and of course our classic London Dry Gin.
This set contains: 1 x 70cl bottle London Cup & 1 x 1 litre carafe.
