New tipple ready for sippin'

A Jersey restaurant is hoping that the first batch of its very own craft gin made in its basement will be a cellar-out success.

Sumas has officially announced the launch of ‘Sippin Gin’, which is distilled very close to home – in the Gorey eatery's own cellar.

The official launch comes following the restaurant’s application to install a gin still in the restaurant's lower half – plans revealed by Express over the summer.

The first batch of ‘Sippin Gin’ uses locally sourced rhubarb blended with eight botanicals, which Sumas Head Chef Danny Lancaster and restauraters Paul and Tara Dufty hope will “tantalise the taste buds of gin lovers island-wide.”

Commenting on the launch, Mr Dufty said: “We’re very excited to be launching our new brand Sippin Gin and our first flavour, rhubarb. We believe we’ve created a beautifully smooth, easy drinking gin that showcases the locally grown produce available to us in Jersey.”

‘Sippin Rhubarb’ is available at LoveWine and also to diners at Sumas restaurant.
