Tasting Notes

👌🏻4.2/5 - Simply Smooth

The objective of Sipsmith when creating this gin was to create a complex and fruity flavour, well they achieved that goal as the palate is very velvety smooth. The sweet and fruity botanicals of the blackcurrant and cherry create a rounded fruitiness that was excellently accompanied by crisp juniper notes and subtle hints of pepper.

This gin kept its consistent smooth flavour until the finish as the finish was sharp, complex and incorporated a nice touch of spices. Overall, this gin is definitely in our top 5 sloe gin list, this sloe gin works perfect as a winter drink and creates a refreshing summer drink also.

Gin and Tonic

There are many ways to enjoy the taste of this gin, our personal preference is to drink the gin over ice with the addition of a lemon wedge and if you want you could add a pinch of nutmeg.

Due to this gin being quite fruity you can use the Fever Tree or Schweppes Indian Tonic Water, this will allow the flavour of the gin to emerge intact.


The botanicals that are featured are: 

Juniper berries, Sloe berries, Coriander, Ground Almond, Cassia Bark, Cinnamon bark, Angelica Root, Liquorice Root, Orris Root, Lemon Peel, Orange Peel

History of Sipsmith

Sipsmith was set up by two friends Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall in 2009 who were former
employees of Fullers and Diageo.

The Sipsmith Sloe Gin still is produced and designed by Christian Carl a German based manufacturer. This copper pot named prudence can hold 300 liters or 79 US gallons. In 2016 December, a subsidiary of Suntory Beverage and Food Ltd, Beam Suntory announced that they now had the controlling stake in Sipsmith but the founders Fairfax Hall and Sam Galsworthy would stay on. In 2017 Sipsmith went into a secret partnership with London culinary Boutique.

Sipsmith first two products Berley Vodka and London Dry Gin produced from English Barley was created from an off-site location. Like before, these two products come in small batches of 300 bottles. Each of these batches are still produced in three traditional cuts: Head is thrown away, the pure distillation is kept and the feints are thrown away. The core is mixed until it reaches its bottling strength using Lydwell Springwater.


The design of the bottle is very attractive. The mix of red, red wax, green, yellow, blue and maroon for the top covers and the stickers on the bottle looks quite appealing.
