Sipsmith London Dry V.J.O.P. GinRegular price $56.99
All hail the juniper berry! If, like us, you think the juniper berry is a proper champion of the botanical world, then you'll love Sipsmith's V.J.O.P., which is jam packed with the fresh, peppery berries. V.J.O.P. (which of course stands for "Very Junipery Over Proof") is made in a similar way to Sipsmith's regular gin, except that the juniper has been turned up to eleven. With extra juniper added to the original recipe, even more is added while the gin is in Sipsmith's lovely pot still, and it's also vapour infused via their Carter Head. As if this wasn't enough to make the V.J.O.P. stand out in a crowd, it's also been bottled at 57.7% to give it a hefty, "junipery" kick.
Sipsmith London Dry V.J.O.P. Gin Tasting Notes
Nose: Massive helpings of pine and peppercorn on the nose, with just a hint of orange underneath.
Palate: Oily juniper once again dominates, supported by clove, waxy peels and coriander.
Finish: Lasting peppery heat and earthy juniper richness.
It all began in 2009, in a tiny workshop in Hammersmith, London. Three great friends – Sam, Fairfax, and Jared – set up London’s first traditional copper pot distillery in nearly 200 years. Their mission was simple: to bring London Dry Gin of truly uncompromising quality and character, back to the city where it first earned its name.
Every bottle of Sipsmith is hand crafted in genuinely small batches. Every drop of every batch is lovingly labored over by hand, by our dedicated Distillers. No regimented timings, no automatic cuts, just a craftsman’s flair and a passion for gin well made. We believe this is the only way to craft spirits of this quality.
