Based in leafy Chiswick, Sipsmith are the first new copper distillery to open in London for nearly 200 years. Their aim is to make a fine, traditional gin with an invigorating lift from all its fragrant botanicals – bold, complex and super-smooth.
"New-school gin, will become a classic"
Of the 10 botanicals used to create this amazing gin, it is coriander and angelica that give the authentic ‘London’ flavour. From around the globe, the rest are: Macedonian juniper berries, Chinese cassia bark, Italian orris root, Madagascan cinnamon bark, Spanish ground almond, liquorice root, lemon peel and orange peel. Each carefully selected botanical plays its part in making a completely distinctive drink. Jared Brown is the wizard behind the blend. He teamed up with Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall in 2009 to create Sipsmith, pledging always to use the traditional ‘one-shot’ method – gin is bottled straight from the still, mixed with water to the correct bottling strength. We like serving this fine gin with a lime slice, ice and tonic!

Laithwaite's began in 1969, when geography student Tony Laithwaite took a job washing bottles in Bordeaux ...

friends and neighbours at home, things went so well that hundreds of little wineries all around the world were soon
queuing to take part. Today we're the UK's No.1 home-delivery wine merchant, with over 1,500 wines to choose from
including red, white, rosé, Champagne, Prosecco, spirits ... you name it. Tony's still at it - and now really good
at washing bottles. Read more
