Sipsmith Zesty Orange Gin
Sipsmith Zesty Orange starts out with a fairly classic botanical mix of juniper, coriander, angelica, licorice, orris, almond, cassia, fresh orange, bergamot, and orange blossoms - all macerated in the distillate or infused in the vapor basket. Inspired by the same technique used to amplify and layer the types of citrus in their Lemon Drizzle bottling, Sipsmith distillers hand peel fresh oranges and rest the distillate in the peels to collect the brightest, zestiest, and sweetest notes of true orange flavor. Delightfully tangy, with notes of sharp citrus, sweet marmalade, tangy sherbet, and a hint of warm cinnamon. There are unlimited applications here, as orange is one of the friendliest flavors known to the cocktailian, but none are so essential as the Negroni. We implore you to take this gin to the Negrone zone. The truly zesty elements here elevate the orange notes present in both vermouth and Campari, making for a grove-y negroni of the highest order. Think less of the grand boulevards of Milan and more of the lush orange groves of Sicily. Or perhaps if the weather is warmer, a spritz. Bubbles and zest - partners in crime. We’ll be waiting for you there.
