Sipsmith is a small independent distiller crafting truly artisanal spirits of uncompromising quality.
The spirits are distilled on a handmade 300L copper-pot still, the first to launch in London for almost two hundred years. The master distiller, Jared Brown, crafts each product by hand, in genuinely small batches – just a few hundred bottles at a time. This delivers stunning spirits that are smooth, full of character and have true intensity of flavour.
Having been gently warmed in the copper pot still, the barley spirit is then held in a 5 plate copper column, redistilling on each plate, before the Master distiller judges the optimal time to allow the spirit to come over into the spirit safe. Only the very top of the heart run that is purest, softest and fullest of flavour is retained, delivering an exceptional vodka.
For the gin, after a short burst of heat to deliver the full release of flavour, the botanicals are steeped in the still for 12 hours before a very gentle and patient distillation. The master distiller works hard to bring the botanical notes over gradually, constantly monitoring and cutting by hand to ensure the optimal balance to deliver Sipsmith’s unique intensity and character.
