Sipsmith Raffles 1915 Gin
Sipsmith // England
This gin was produced in honor of the 100th anniversary of the Singapore Sling created at the Raffles Hotel's Long Bar in 1915. The London-made gin highlights botanicals from the Malayan peninsula. Ingredients such as jasmine, pomelo peel, Kaffir lime leaf, nutmeg, lemongrass and cardamom to name a few are used along with some classic gin botanicals. Exclusive to the Raffles Hotel & Bar, you may find a rare bottle up for sale in the UK at Selfridges.
Modern GinAlso has been referred to as "Contemporary", "New Western", "New Wave", and "New American". This style is not legally defined. In general, this category of gin, while it does contain juniper, places less of an emphasis on this botanical. Other botanicals not classically used in London Dry gins are often utilized and often highlight botanicals grown in the region the gin is produced. Most produced as either London Dry or Distilled Gins.
