Naturally, The Gin Kin is interested in the gin based cocktail! We do love a classic Bramble but we also love any excuse to try out something new. Royal Lancaster’s version of the Bramble – The Sipsmith Bramble – is a modern take on the original recipe, which was invented by Dick Bradsell in the 1980s.
Inspired by a childhood spent picking blackberries on the Isle of Wight, Bradsell created the first Bramble while working at Fred’s Club in Soho, while Royal Lancaster’s adaptation features a mix of locally-distilled Sipsmith London Dry Gin and Sloe Gin, complemented with fresh lime juice and and Crème de Mûre blackberry liqueur.
The Sipsmith Bramble is just £8.50 and is available at Island Grill, the hotel’s eco-friendly restaurant and bar. With a focus on sustainability, Island Grill’s team are proud to work with London distilleries to serve locally sourced – and delicious – drinks and cocktails.
