2AA Rosette Restaurant, Sumas, has announced the launch of it’s own brand of premium craft gin, ‘Sippin gin’, and the first blend ‘Sippin Rhubarb’.
The Rhubarb Gig, created in the restaurant’s new distillery under the professional eyes of executive Chef Dany Lancaster and restaurateurs Paul and Tara Dufty, is the first of its kind to be distilled on the island of Jersey. Using locally sourced Jersey rhubarb and a blend of 8 botanicals, Sippin Rhubarb capitalises on the exciting trend for craft gins and is set to tantalise the taste buds of gin lovers island wide.
Sippin Rhubarb 42% ABV, is a smooth, modern new world style gin. Containing natural flavours that are perfectly balanced, It can be enjoyed with tonic, ginger ale, in a cocktail or simply “sipped” over ice. Every botanical and ingredient has been carefully selected, flavour extracted and blended to create a superb premium Gin.
“We’re very excited to be launching our new brand Sippin Gin and our first flavour, rhubarb” says Paul Dufty, owner of Sumas.
“We’ve spent nearly a year working on our blend and having our executive chef lead this process means we believe we’ve created a beautifully smooth, easy drinking gin that showcases the locally grown produce available to us on Jersey. We would like to think we’ve created one of the best rhubarb gins on the market!”
Future additions to the Sippin portfolio are already in progress and the distillery is set to extend the range in the coming months.
Sippin Rhubarb is available for purchase at local retailer Love Wine, and to diners at Sumas Restaurant, with plans to expand to further outlets.
