Tasting Notes

The Nose

Floral, summer meadow notes, followed by mellow rounded juniper and zesty, citrus freshness.

The Palate

Dry juniper leads, then reveals lemon tart & orange marmalade, before all the flavours harmonise.

The Finish

Dryness leads, with spicy juniper & a hint of lemon tart emerging.

Serving Suggestions


  • Juniper Berries

    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.

  • Italian Orris Root

    Orris root is the root of the iris flower, and delivers a delicate floral, fragrant note to our London Dry Gin whilst serving to bind the other botanicals together to deliver a harmonious flavour profile.

  • Belgian Angelica Root

    Similar to the orris root, angelica acts as a binding agent to promote the harmony of the other botanicals. It also adds its own dry characteristic and helps to provide the wonderfully long, dry Sipsmith finish.

  • Coriander

    Bulgarian Coriander Seed

    A mellow spiciness and a long finish with hints of citrus and a hint of peppery ginger, is derived from the addition of coriander seed to the Sipsmith botanical mix.

  • Chinese Cassia Bark

    Hailing all the way from China, and from the same family as cinnamon, cassia bark adds a hints of sweet, warm spice to the Sipsmith recipe.

  • Spanish Ground Almond

    Spanish ground almond is used to bring delicate spiciness and marzipan notes and adds depth and body to Sipsmith’s London Dry Gin.

  • Madagascan Cinnamon Bark

    Madagascan cinnamon bark adds a delicately sweet spiciness to the botanical mix, similar to (and from the same family as) cassia, it is an essential component of the rounded Sipsmith recipe.

  • Spanish Liquorice Root

    Liquorice root adds an attractive bittersweet undertone, and equally importantly neutralises any bitterness from other botanicals to allow their properties to shine through in Sipsmith London Dry Gin.

  • Lemon Peel

    Lemon peel adds a subtle brightness to the citrus notes, showing on the palate as a hint of lemon tart.

  • Seville Orange Peel

    Grown along the streets of Seville and also known as ‘bitter orange’, this fruit has a wonderful tartness that delivers a zesty citrus note on the palate with marmalade overtones.

More Product Information

Gin made the way it used to be, and the way we believe it should be.

Our London Dry Gin was born out of a desire to see gin production return to the city where it earned its name. With a nod to traditional hand crafted production, our gin combines traditional copper pot distillation with a recipe that wouldn't look unfamiliar to an eighteenth century Master Distiller.

  3. Just simply the best gin in the market. Smooth, full of juniper and very VERY moreish. Cracking G&T but also so good in a martini. I bought the Sipsmith SIP cocktail book too which meant I could make loads of drinks at home with this gin and feel like a proper mixologist. Winning!


  4. My favourite all-rounder gin perfect for any cocktail (gin and even some vodka ones too), any season, any time of day. Always hits the spot.


  5. Incredibly smooth and refreshing. Works well with any mixer and is perfect for a Summer Afternoon G&T!


  6. If you like gin and want the smoothest, tastiest, dry and crisp London Dry Gin look no further. Everything is in the detail from the liquid through to the hand dipped wax seal, no compromise! My absolute favourite for a G&T loaded with ice a lemon twist….
