Continuing the success of the last couple of years this is the 2012 vintage of Sipsmith's Sloe Gin. Made from their award-winning gin and rather a lot of sloe berries it's a big and fruity liqueur that's great for summer drinking on ice or nursing in front of the fire in winter.
Sipsmith’s London Dry Gin is a boutique English Barley spirit distilled with ten carefully selected botanicals, and blended with the exceptionally pure water of Lydwell spring, the source of the River Thames. A classic dry style, with intense juniper balanced by citrus freshness. IWSC 2012 - Gold Medal - Gin
A 2013 release, Sipsmith V.J.O.P Gin turns the juniper up to 11 as well as being bottled at higher strength of 57.7%. The process includes a 'triple juniper' technique which adds the juniper at three stages - first it is macerated for three days, then more juniper is added to the pot still and finally vapour infused into the spirit. This will work well in fuller flavoured gin-based cocktails.
