The Bartender

Bill Shearer will be your bartender for Canvas 003 and will be taking you through The Pleasing Particularities of Finals Weekend at Wimbledon. From the amazing story behind the Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin to showing you how to perfectly serve each of the cocktails, Bill will be there to ensure you have an amazing experience with us.

Originally from Scotland, Bill spent the first years of his bartending career in Aberdeen before moving to London and working at Dandelyan - the World's Best Bar at the time, no biggie. Bill is now the UK Brand Ambassador for Sipsmith and spends his days sipping Martini's and spreading the word of this delicious London-based Distillery.

 


The Drinks

The SW19 Summer Cup was an elegant take on the summer classic, the Summer Cup. Using the Sipsmith London Cup, this drink was the perfect start to a summer's evening. You can watch Bill explain more about this drink here

Next was The Championships Martini, this drink was all about celebrating the amazing Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin, made with the strawberries ordered for the 2020 Wimbledon Championships. A Dry Martini with all of those deliciously complex strawberry notes you find in the Strawberry Smash Gin.

We couldn't bring you a Wimbledon experience without interpreting the infamous Strawberries & Cream flavour into a cocktail. The Murray's Milk Punch uses a little bit of bartender magic to bring the delicious creamy mouthfeel of oat milk whilst delivering a clarified final drink.

 

 

Beyond the drinks

 When it came to the scent for this box, we looked at the courts at Wimbledon for inspiration. We wanted to bring to life the feeling of walking around SW19 in the morning with the fresh morning air being seasoned by the freshly cut grass. There's nothing quite like that smell to get you in the mood for summer & for some tennis.

 

  

With each Canvas box, we introduce an element of texture through our Canvas Coasters. For Canvas 003 we wanted to highlight something close to the heart of the Sipsmith brand, copper. When we had the pleasure of having our content shoot at the Sipsmith Distillery in Chiswick, it really brought home the importance of the copper to the creation of the Sipsmith spirits. To bring this to life at home, we have some bespoke coasters that replicate the hammered effect found on the Sipsmith stills. 

We were really excited to be able to bring you these equally beautiful and delicious teacakes from the amazing guys at The Marshmallowist. When we first mentioned the Wimbledon & Sipsmith collaboration to founder Oonagh she was immediately dreaming up flavour combinations and tennis ball designs. The final Teacakes include the Sipsmith Strawberry Smash Gin with a fresh strawberry + black pepper centre and a vanilla cream fluff. Enrobed in creamy white chocolate and hand-painted to look like a tennis ball.
