Sipsmith creates range of traditional gin cordials
Sipsmith gin is to release a selection of cordials designed to complement its London Dry Gin.
Master distiller and cocktail historian, Jared Brown, has been crafting the range of three Original Cordials for Gin by Sipsmith for several years, inspired by how gin would have been enjoyed in days gone by.
The cordials are comprised of The Original, a candied ginger cordial with a touch of orange bitters; The Gimlet, describe as delivering sweet florals with “punchy lime peel”; and The Bishop, Sipsmith’s take on Charles Dickens’ favourite cocktail – the Good Bishop.
Brown said: “London is the home of gin – the place where it all began – and the city’s rich spirited history is a constant source of inspiration and ideas.
“At the heart of what we do has always been a restless enthusiasm for discovery and experimentation as well as an appreciation for what went before.
“It’s with great excitement that we’re releasing three cordials that nod to London’s distinguished drinking history.”
The cordials were produced using traditional methodologies to fit the style of Sipsmith’s handcrafted, small-batch production values, reflecting the flavours popular in the late 1800s.
Brown added: “Each of the first release cordials has two serving suggestions: a simple fizz to emphasise the subtle flavours of the cordial, and a shorter Martini glass serve, similar to the original serves that inspired them.”
