Sipsmith Gin and Ham Yard Hotel have teamed up for a second year of their Hot Gin On The Roof pop-up bar. 

I was lucky enough to attend this year’s launch at the beautiful rooftop of the Ham Yard Hotel. For gin fans and novices alike, this is an experience that you won’t want to miss!


Exploring the theme of The Classics, Sipsmith Master Distiller, Jared Brown, and Ham Yard Hotel Bar Manager, Eoin Kenny, have collaborated to reimagine classic gin cocktails from the roaring 1920’s.

Hot Gin Cocktails

Guests will have the opportunity to taste a number of creations, from the Hot Negroni – using Sipsmith’s award- winning London Dry Gin, to the piping hot Reverse Martini and the returning signature favourite the Hot G&T.

“Sipsmith is a real celebration of where the old meets the new, with the spirit of London’s Gin heritage at its core. Just as I did for our original London Dry Gin recipe, I’ve been delving deep into the history books for inspiration. Last year, the Hot G&T was born at this event, and we’re looking forward to showcasing our twisted classics at the iconic Ham Yard Hotel.”

– Master Distiller Jared Brown
