Sipsmith London Dry Gin Review

Sipsmith London Dry GinTime for another gin review, this time the wonderfully buttery Sipsmith London Dry Gin.

This is a cracker of a gin, buttery creaminess entwine with earhty juniper and floral ctrus sweetness, an easy drinker and one I will be adding a bottle of to the gin selection at home.

You can buy a bottle from The Whisky Exchange and I would recommend you doing so, this really is worth having in the Gin cupboard.

As per all of the Gin reviews, to maintain consistency each is tasted straight and then with the addition of Fever Tree tonic

Thanks to Georgie at Sipsmith for arranging the official sample.

Tasting Notes & Details

Nose

(straight) There's an initial short blast of juniper before more floral notes come in, carnations and hints of lillies, then a waft of something chocolatey and velvety mixes with homemade lemon curd before the juniper jumps out again to say hello.

(with tonic) Juniper and the lillies come through the tonic well, with the lemon notes coming in gently also.

Palate

(straight) very creamy and buttery on the tongue before it becomes much more earthy with juniper coming first then ground ginger before a mellow creamy lemon mousse takes over.

(with tonic) very citrussy now, lots of creamy lemon curd mousse with juniper coming in behind

Finish

(straight) hints of ground white pepper and splashes of ginger mix with lemongrass and juniper

(with tonic) sweet lemon curd.
