Tasting notes

The Nose

Rich orange, fresh cucumber and delicate tea notes on the nose.

The Palate

The bold juniper and zesty citrus notes of the gin are complimented by aromatic spices and hints of cherry.

The Finish

A long, intricate and complex, flavourful yet refreshingly dry finish.


Praise for our Summer Cup

"...a peppery, perfumed, Earl Grey, cardamom and lemon verbena-spiked take on the traditional English gin sling...Summer in a glass."

Jane MacQuitty, The Times

What could be more delightful than Pimm's on an English summer afternoon? Summer Cup, that's what.

ES Magazine

Move over, Pimm’s: we have a new favourite, endlessly quaffable summer-booze option in the form of this gin-based drink blended with lemon verbena, Early Grey and cucumber.

The Independent

This fragrant gin-based summer cup smells of spices and cardamom and is made with Sipsmith's own excellent gin, combined with infusions that include verbena, Earl Grey tea and cucumber.

Saturday Telegraph

From their tiny distillery in Hammersmith, the entrepreneurial boys behind the fantastic Sipsmith Vodka and Gin have struck gold with their Summer Cup recipe.

Waitrose Weekend

Perfect for marrying with lemonade in the sun. It's bone dry, it's complex. It's summer in a glass.

Sipsmith James

It’s perfect mixed with lemonade or ginger beer
