Sipsmith Summer Cup

Sipsmith Summer Cup Sipsmith Summer CupGiven the number of great spirits that the Sipsmith boys produce, one could scarcely believe that they operate out of a diminutive garage/distillery in Hammersmith.  The latest liquid to pour out of their distillery is Summer Cup, a classic British drink made with homegrown Lemon Verbena, Earl Grey tea, Cardamom, Cucumber, Orange and a few other secret ingredients.  Harking back to the quintessentially English ‘cups’ of the 1800s, Summer Cup’s ingredients are blended with Sipsmith London Dry Gin in Prudence, London’s first copper pot still since 1820, to produce a drink that provides an interesting and delicious alternative to everyone’s favourite summer drink (the one that rhymes with Timms!).  Sipsmith Summer Cup is available for £18.50 from Waitrose, Majestic and online from
