70cl * Vegan * 22% ABV * Surrey Hills, UK
Handcrafted in the Surrey Hills, after almost 18 months of experimenting and blending batches at the distillery, Sipello was, uniquely, on cocktail menus in some of the UK’s most highly respected cocktail bars almost 5 months ahead of launch!
The bittersweet aperitif marries a gooseberry-led blend of British ingredients such as rhubarb and the little known chuckleberry with sustainably sourced botanicals from around the world. Led by sandalwood, gentian and wormwood, it is a fruit-forward aperitif with a long bitter finish. It takes 4 weeks to make as many of the ingredients are separately macerated before blending the fruity-bitter liquid to give it depth, complexity, and a long finish. You'll find no artificial colouring or flavouring here, all of the botanicals are hand-picked, wild harvested and where certifiable, organic.
Not only does Sipello lend itself to a myriad of classic cocktails such as Boulevardiers, Martinis and Negroni’s, but top end bartenders have happily mixed Sipello with everything from gin, prosecco, sea salt, single malt whisky, coconut water and Champagne to mezcals, pale ales, fruit liqueurs and Elderflower Pressé’s.
