Meet The Makers – The Sipsmith smith to smith series
Taking shortcuts is crafty, doing things properly that’s craft. The talented distillers at Sipsmith will host a series of talks, discussions and masterclasses with like-minded smiths. In turn they hope to inspire the next generation of makers, to a future better made by hand.
Sipsmith opened the first small batch gin distillery in London, for just shy of 200 years and are now celebrated as the pioneers of the craft gin renaissance. Spear-headed by their three passionate founders, Sam, Fairfax and Jared, who firmly believed the world deserved to sip better gin, they set out to make a gin of truly uncompromising quality and bring it back to its birthplace, London.
In 2009, after successfully petitioning the government to change the law around the scale of gin production, the first handcrafted gin was bottled in the UK in 189 years. From the first bottle, Sipsmith have championed the belief that making gin by hand, with passion and immense skill, will lead to the most extraordinary tasting gin. The Sipsmith team are at the heart of every drop, with a passion to inspire ever more people to discover and enjoy their uncompromisingly handcrafted London Dry Gin. This authentic style is beautifully balanced and wonderfully versatile, making it bold enough for a G&T and smooth enough to sip neat in a martini.
Sipsmith gin has won over 30 international awards and is used by top bartenders and gin lovers across the globe, as an essential ingredient to a vast range of classic cocktails.
