Sam Galsworthy is co-founder of Sipsmith, producers of classic London dry gin. In order to do so, though, he and he co-founder Fairfax first had to change a 200-year-old law. They did reverse it, and therefore gave life to the beverage landscape in the UK.
In this episode, Sam and I talk about what’s behind making things by hand/small batch, how Sipsmith changed the gin game — a ‘ginaissance,’ as he calls it — the different phases of entrepreneurialism, and not riding the trends, but rather sailing through them.
I love Sam’s formula for a successful entrepreneur: perseverance + determination + passion. “What entrepreneurship takes is grit,” he says.
