In celebration of the much-anticipated summer, we’ve teamed up with Ham Yard Hotel to create an elevated gin-filled experience on the hotel’s beautiful roof terrace in the heart of Soho.
Inspired by our love for the freshest ingredients, Zestival will see a transformation of Ham Yard’s roof terrace into a world inspired by our Zesty Orange and Lemon Drizzle Gins for a celebration of all things citrus, transporting you away from the everyday, entering a vibrant haven which is sure to brighten up your day.
Taking inspiration from the history of British greengrocers, expect zesty oranges and fresh lemons hanging from the gorgeous canopy, wooden crates overflowing with fresh fruit, a stunning fountain flower feature and more.
With a menu of all new cocktails, inspired by historical recipes, set to inspire gin lovers, Ham Yard’s expert bar team have crafted a menu using our award-winning Sipsmith London Dry Gin, as well as our Zesty Orange Gin, Lemon Drizzle and Strawberry Smash. All served with a food pairing to match.
Guests will also have the opportunity to create their very own cocktail, weighing out ingredients on the green grocers scales, taking a ticket and having their own specially curated drinks delivered to their table.
Enjoy the longer evenings and watch the sun set as you take in views over the rooftops of Soho from Ham Yard’s leafy rooftop garden.
Zestival tickets are £22 per person, and include access to Ham Yard’s exclusive roof terrace, a welcome drink and a further cocktail of your choice.
The 90 minute sessions are available from 5pm–10pm Monday-Friday or 2pm-10pm on Saturday.
Lazy Sunday Sessions tickets are also available on Sundays from 2pm-8pm and include a 45 minute live music set. These tickets are priced at £40 per person, and include access to Ham Yard’s exclusive Roof Terrace, live music, welcome drink, a further cocktail of your choice and a sharing charcuterie platter.

– Cocktail ingredients to craft a Strawberry Smash Gimlet
– Cocktail ingredients to craft a Strawberry Smash Collins

What you will need at home:
– A cocktail shaker (don’t worry if you don’t have one, a jam jar will do the same job!)

Join us for our much-loved virtual Sipsmith Distillery Tour and tutored tasting of three of our core range of sensationally sippable gins. Your Sipsmith hosts will take you through the virtual distillery gates and talk you through the history of Sipsmith, our story and how we came to make the award-winning gin that sippers around the world love today. Your two hosts will guide you through a gin tasting of London Dry Gin, Lemon Drizzle Gin and Zesty Orange Gin and answer all of your ginny questions. Please note, this is a live virtual event where only our video will be active. You can simply sit back, relax and shake up some wonderful gin cocktails from the comfort of your home.
One ticket includes 1 Distillery Gift Pack Trio
-5cl London Dry Gin
-5cl Lemon Drizzle Gin
-5cl Zesty Orange Gin
All you need at home to take part:
– Glassware for tasting
– Tonic, garnishes (we opt for a lime wedge in our classic G&T) and some ice if you wish to make a G&T to enjoy during the session
We would recommend one ticket per person so that you have enough of each gin to neat taste and then make a G&T to sip on whilst you enjoy the session. We recommend getting some of your favourite tonic and a lemon or orange to garnish to make this experience even more enjoyable from the comfort of your home. Alternatively if you wish to just do the neat gin tasting, then one kit will be enough for two people.
Please note that this event is for UK residents only and your Distillery Gift Pack Trio will arrive with you 24-48 hours before the event. An e-mail containing a joining link and instructions will arrive in your inbox 24 hours before the event so you have everything you need for an evening of sipping.
