The Nose: Fresh fiery chilli combines with fruity mulberry notes
The Palate: Complex and full-bodied with spiced star fruit and ripe cantaloupe melon.
The Finish: Violet, black tea and a bright lime finale.
Drawing on influences from South America, Sipsmith crafted this spicy Day of the Dead gin with botanicals and flavours that have an affinity to tequila. For around 3000 years, the Day of the Dead festival has been practised in Mexico, bringing together family and friends, with food at the forefront of their celebrations. Working alongside friends at Chiswick Chillies, Sipsmith crafted a unique recipe combining 7 chillies from around the world. After a full day of tasting a range of chillies from the rather hot Carolina Reaper, to the rich and fruity Chocolate Habanero, to the Black Naga, Sipsmith can confirm these homegrown chillies really do pack a punch. The various chillies are dried and macerated with lime peel, then vapour infused a second batch of lime during distillation to dial up the citrus and balance the spice. Sip in a Margarita, spice up a mojito, or simply top with ginger beer.
