Imagining the botanicals as components in an orchestra, here we have taken the lead instrument, juniper, and amplified its presence in the ensemble, and then raised the decibels by increasing the proof alcohol. The result is our very own symphony in ’J’ major.
After years working in the drinks industry, we struck out on our own to pursue our passion for beautifully handmade spirits. We call ourselves “sip-smiths” to celebrate the craft of distillation and our artisanal methods. We like to think buildings have a soul. Ours, in Hammersmith, west London, was once home to the esteemed whisky expert Michael Jackson, and before that, was the micro-brewery for a local pub. Now it is where we craft and hone our artisanal spirits. It is as if it knew what it wanted to be all along. We make our spirits by hand in genuinely small batches – just a few hundred bottles a time. We passionately believe this is the only way to craft spirits of this quality. Inspired by the two hundred years of London distilling history we have inherited, we balance modern technology with traditional recipes and techniques. We like to think that old meets new and the two get on really quite spectacularly.
