Summer Cup

Based on our award winning London Dry Gin, it is then blended with a host of carefully selected summery ingredients including infusions of Earl Grey tea, Lemon Verbena and Cucumber. Aromatic yet surprisingly dry, it's crying out for lemonade and fruit.

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

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

It’s perfect mixed with lemonade or ginger beer, and topped with fruit and mint.

Woman & Home

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 a mixer in the sun. It's bone dry, it's complex. It's summer in a glass.
