Master Distiller Jared and Head Distiller Ollie’s idea was to create a unique and balanced recipe of Sipsmith London Dry Gin, Campari & sweet Vermouth, then redistill it. The result, was a sublimely sippable, unrecognisable ‘phantom’ Negroni.
Orange Marmalade first hits the nose, to be complemented with sweet spicy clove.
Huge juniper flavours are the backbone of this gin with a hint of fennel to give a herbaceous twist.
Subtle herbaceous bitterness is lasting on the palate, giving a refreshing memory long after your first sip.

This mind-meddling clear 'phantom' Negroni was born in the Distillery Lab in December last year. One can't distil colour hence why spirits are always clear; the reason for this being that the colour compounds are too big and volatile stopping them from turning to vapour like the rest of the spirit. A spirit can however gain colour post distillation, through methods such as infusions, macerations and aging. The classic Negroni is made from a combination of Gin, sweet Vermouth and Campari. The sweet Vermouth and Campari are both aged and infused with a secret combination of ingredients, giving them a strong red tone and the classic Negroni its distinctive colour.
I love a Negroni and this peculiarly clear version is great fun….
