For the holiday season this year, there is a unique Sipsmith gin being created by the London-based distillery. The limited-edition Mince pie Gin is being touted as "Christmas in a glass," boasting favors of warming cinnamon, nutmeg, clove and Madagascan vanilla, as well as spiced raisin, dates, fresh juniper and Norwegian spruce. In all, the Sipsmith gin is said to have a "buttery biscuit aftertaste."
The Mince pie Gin is being packaged by Sipsmith in a special gift set that pairs the uniquely flavored spirit with a small bottle of Sipsmith London Dry Gin.
With the rise of the foodie movement challenging the average consumer to become more adventurous with their eating habits, the beverage and alcohol industries are responding by creating exotic crossover products that take inspiration from comforting foods.
