Summer Fruit Cup is a non-commercial drinks website written by a husband and wife team living in an old brewery on the South-coast of England.
We write about topics of drink and drinking, tasting & reviews (particularly Gin & Whisk(e)y), cocktail history and features, vintage barware and vintage cocktail book reviews. Basically anything that is of interest and we’ll enjoy writing about.
Although Summer Fruit Cup is non-commercial website; we have contributed to a number of other media/publications including Imbibe Magazine, The Drinks Business, Channel 4 television, BBC Radio, GinTime as well as other guest articles on websites and contributions to books.
As of 2016 David T. Smith has chaired the gin judging American Distilling Institute, Worlds Best Drinks and Gin Masters competitions. He also judges for IWSC as their gin specialist.
He has published his first book with co-author Aaron Knoll entitled The Craft of Gin and has subsequently published How to Make Gin and Forgotten Spirits and Long-lost Liqueurs.
We are members of American Distillers Institute, The International Gin Association (IGA) and The Drinks Writer’s Guild.
