UK gin brand Sipsmith has created a strawberry-infused bottling to mark its partnership with the Wimbledon tennis tournament.
Sipsmith Strawberry Smash is the second expression in the brand’s limited edition Sipping Series, this new expression follows the release of Sipsmith Chilli & Lime Gin last year.
The expression is made by blending English mint with ripe strawberries from Hugh Lowe Farms in Kent, the exclusive grower of strawberries for Wimbledon, with the brand’s London Dry Gin.
“This year with Sipsmith becoming the official gin partner of Wimbledon we felt it was quite right to harness the taste of British summertime and use last year’s Championships strawberries to make this year’s champion gin,” said Jared Brown, Sipsmith master distiller.
“As with all of our innovative gins we crafted Strawberry Smash to our exacting standards by layering complementary sweet ripe strawberries, fresh English mint and refreshing citrus fruits on top of our original London Dry Gin base to create a delightfully fruity and refreshing gin with a smooth and balanced finish.”
The brand recommends that the new expression be served with tonic water or mixed in cocktails, such as a Spritz or Collins.
