Quintessential London gin Sipsmith launches Martini sessions to inspire Aussies

Sipsmith, the quintessential London Dry Gin, joins forces with Sydney’s The Barber Shop and Melbourne’s Gin Palace & Trinket, to bring a series of Martini events to Aussies. 

Sipsmith, which launched in 2009 is the original London Gin distilled the way it used to be, the way it should be. The gin is distilled in small batches in copper stills, using only the heart cut (middle cut) and ‘one shot’ method, meaning that Sipsmith gin comes out of the still according to exact preferences. 

Founders Sam Galsworthy & renowned cocktail historian Jared Brown will be in town to launch the series of Martini events, starting with a ‘Personalised Martini’ session. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity will be hosted at The Barber Shop & Gin Palace, where cocktail historian Jared Brown will be taking over the bar and creating personalised martinis for all, based on their personality. You will also be able to mingle and learn from Sam and Jared throughout the afternoon – how good!

In addition to this, Trinket and The Barber Shop will be hosting a 3 Martini event, bringing back the boozy tradition whilst pairing drinks with delicious gin-infused dishes.
