Sipsmith London Dry Gin
THE LONDON BRIDGE MAY BE IN ARIZONA, BUT TRADITIONAL LONDON GIN HAS COME HOME.
It all began in 2009, in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith, London. Two childhood friends, Fairfax and Sam, had an unwavering belief in things well made - the way they used to be, the way they should be. So they set up London’s first traditional copper distillery since 1820. Their mission was simple: to bring London Dry Gin of truly uncompromising quality and character, back to the city where it first earned its name. Every bottle of Sipsmith is hand-crafted in genuinely small batches. Every drop of every batch is lovingly laboured over by hand, by our dedicated Distillers. No regimented timings, no automatic cuts, just a craftsman’s flair and a passion for gin well made. We believe this is the only way to craft spirits of this quality.
In 2007, two great friends from Cornwall embarked on a mission to bring gin of uncompromising quality and character back to the city where it first earned its name. After a two year battle to obtain a distillers license, we triumphantly threw open our little blue doors on Nasmyth Street, Hammersmith, and Sipsmith was born. Our launch was to mark the beginning of a gin distilling renaissance in London, and made us the first traditional copper pot distillery to open in London for nearly 200 years – something that we’re more than just a little bit proud of.
By 2009 we had found the perfect location, been granted our license, and commissioned our beautiful copper pot still Prudence. All that was left was to find a Master Distiller. It was at a Negroni party (of all places) that Sam and Fairfax were introduced to the world renowned drinks aficionado Jared Brown. It soon became apparent that Jared shared Sam and Fairfax’s passion for things well made, and before the evening was out he had agreed to join them on their mission to create the world’s best London Dry Gin.
