Two childhood friends, Sam Galsworthy and Fairfax Hall, decided there would be no half measures when they set up Sipsmith. Their mission to bring top-quality London gin back to the city that gave it its name began in 2009. Along with drinks aficionado Jared Brown, they set up London's first traditional copper distillery since 1820.

They have come a long way since then, expanding globally, but their ethos hasn't changed: they make gin, not compromises. The same goes for how staff at the distillery work together. The company wants it people to have the greatest experience they can at work, without compromises.

Sipsmith staff do things together, so whatever an employee's role, they are involved with every part of the company, from delivering quality brand experiences to hosting visitors from around the world at their world-class distillery bar. Sipsmith wants everyone to experience and contribute to everything the company does.

Sipsmith staff are a family of individuals — they work together, but everyone is empowered to use their super powers to help the business and brand expand. Part of the company's mission is to support a culture that celebrates success and promotes learning.

Sipsmith encourages the team to think for themselves and develop their own careers. Anyone is welcome to put forward a case for individual growth and learning. If it can be justified to support business objectives, Sipsmith is pleased to support them, financially.
