Sipsmith London Cup

Sipsmith Distillery has also entered the tea-based drinks sector. The producer blends Earl Grey tea with borage, lemon verbena and other botanicals to create a “sublimely sippable cup” to be served long with lemonade.

On the nose, there are aromas of burnt orange, cucumber, caramel and tea leaves, while the taste is said to be reminiscent of marmalade and cherry with herbaceous notes, leading to a scorched oak finish.

Sipsmiths London Cup is available for around £19 for a 70cl bottle.

  1. Interesting article but I think you forgot to include the best tea spirit: Pekoe tea liqueur 🙂

    Great topic, some very interesting or influential products. Nevertheless the selection is focus on UK-US producers/markets … after Dutch Pekoe liqueur, no French producers such as Cartron who has also done a great series of tea liqueur including Lapsang, Rooibos and Maté, Boudier a Darjeeling tea liqueur, also Marie Brizard, Briottet and not to forget the great Slovakian Tatra tea range or some Japanese Umeshu and tea for instance. Cheers, it’s tea time !
