The Team

In 2009, on a mission to bring gin of uncompromising quality and character back to the city where it all began, we threw open our blue doors of hope on Nasymth Street and launched a traditional copper distillery which, and we're a little overexcited about this, no one had done in London for nearly 200 years. It was to mark the beginning of a gin distilling renaissance in London. And who doesn't love a renaissance.

We handcraft our gin in small batches with skill, care and an almost fetishistical love. Only ever taking the heart of the spirit, and never made from concentrate, this is gin made the way it used to be, the way it should be. The result is stunningly smooth, full of character and exploding with flavour.

We like to think buildings have a soul. Our original site, on Nasymth Street in Hammersmith, was once home to the esteemed whisky expert Michael Jackson, and before that, was the micro-brewery for a local pub. In 2014 - committed to the distilling standards we founded Sipsmith with - the Sipsmith word began to spread and we out grew our little garage. We moved 5 minutes down the road (to a slightly larger garage) that could house not only Patience and Constance (Prudence's younger sisters) but our growing team of empassioned Sipsmiths too.

We'd be delighted for you to join us for a tour and tasting and see where it all happens.
