Fancy a Little Tipple?
Then you’re in for a big surprise.

If the Little Tipple’s Gaudi-esque sign above the entrance doesn’t give you a clue about the individuality of this family-run village shop in Long Ashton, near Bristol, then the weird and wonderfully organic timber counter and fixtures that greet you once inside certainly will.

It’s like a grotto, with every nook and cranny filled with interesting wines from small family vineyards from around the world and full-bodied craft beers from local breweries. And that’s before you realise that, squeezed between more familiar bottles, there are also some rather remarkable and tempting single malt whiskies, vintage ports, liqueurs, sherries and ciders each individually selected by its owners.

Smeaton’s Dry Gin recreates a hand-written 1870s recipe discovered in the historic Bristol Archives on Smeaton Road, Spike Island.
Today, the master distiller respects the original ‘Bristol Method’ of bespoke gin-making – varying the maceration, temperature and cuts for each small batch distillation of each individual botanical. According to their season, juniper berries, barks, roots and delicate oils are each distilled separately in traditional copper pots.
This single-minded dedication allows the botanicals to express their rich flavours and reveal their bright, clean flavours while avoiding unwelcome cooked notes. Rested for three months before release, Smeaton’s is a premium dry gin of exceptional balance, complexity and length.

In the rolling fields of Jo Hilditch's Herefordshire farm, grows a tiny currant. Grown here since 1876 it's rarely seen and little known but Jo is one of just 35 growers trusted to grow blackcurrants for Ribena. This vitamin-rich and succulent blackcurrant is harvested under the summer sun and now some of the fruit is carefully crafted into the very finest British Cassis.

White Heron British Cassis is intensely fruity and sweet at first taste, before finishing with an irresistible sharp after-kick. This sultry liqueur is the perfect aperitif and twists beautifully into fizzing champagne or prosecco and is decadent in cocktails. El Diablo tequila anyone?
