We got a reply from Sipsmith Independent Spirits to our question about the differences between their different batches:
Since we started up we have used the same recipe as well as procuring our botanicals from the same place. This means that the flavour should’t change too much! However, we do make them in small batches which can make them differ slightly- not enough to change the taste too much though.
I think your surroundings may have had a big influence on your taste buds- I hope you were not disappointed by the change in flavour. Do keep up the tasting of lots of our different batches!!!
