If you have even the slightest interest in British craft spirits (or simply just quite like a good gin), you’ll undoubtedly have heard of Sipsmith. The distillery’s founders, Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall, kicked open their doors in London in 2009, becoming the first copper pot-based distillery to do so in almost 200 years. With Master Distiller Jared Brown by their side, they launched their own spectacular gin, and soon enough a vodka and various seasonal expressions.
Sipsmith began in a small building on Nasymth Street which was previously a microbrewery and the office of the legendary drinks writer Michael Jackson. They soon outgrew the building and headed west to Chiswick – this building houses their first copper pot still, Prudence, as well as her sisters Constance and Patience.
