With a mission to create the world’s finest London Dry Gin, gin pioneer Sipsmith opened its doors in London in 2009, marking a significant milestone: the first traditional copper-pot distillery to open in the original gin city since 1820. The brand successfully revived authentic London Dry Gin the way it used to be made, but with a modern, distinctive flair you can savour in every sip…

Since then, the brand’s beautifully balanced gin has taken the mixology world by storm, winning multiple awards and finding its rightful place in bars in over 50 countries.

In 2020, Sipsmith joined forces with Wimbledon, becoming the Championship’s first official gin partner. Both steeped in history, Sipsmith and Wimbledon – the oldest and most prestigious tennis tournament in the world – are a match made in heaven and go together like gin and tonic.

“We are honoured to be associated with such a renowned institution that shares our pursuit for greatness. Wimbledon is just as committed to quality, attention to detail, and incredible talent as we are, and we can’t wait to see what this perfect partnership bears,” says Stella Bischoff, Head of Marketing at Sipsmith.

This year’s Championship kicks off on 27 June 2022 and marks Wimbledon’s 135th tournament of serving world-class tennis entertainment – and its second stint serving sensational gin, thanks to Sipsmith. Spectators can sip and mix a perfect tipple, either courtside or couch-side, as they watch the professionals play.

To share the splendour of this sporting extravaganza, Sipsmith is giving away two Centre Court tickets to the Men’s Final to one lucky winner. The match will take place on Sunday, 10 July 2022, concluding the prestigious tournament.
