Sloe Gin

Sloe Gin

28% ABV

A classic British infusion, Sloe Gin became popular when farmers would use blackthorn bushes to separate their fields and keep animals in. They found that soaking the normally bitter and tart sloe berries from this bush in gin would, over time, bring out the residual sweetness and plum-like flavour of the berry. Ours is a simple and classic rendition, using our Authentic Dry as the base and soaking sloe berries for between six and nine months to extract as much depth of flavour as possible.

Sweet and fruity, forest fruits and with a little oak and nutty notes.

Palate

Stone fruits dominate this expression, rich stewed plums and black cherries. A little marzipan delivers depth and character. Sweet but not cloyingly so. Some juniper character shines through the top notes.

Finish

Sweet and full of rich dark fruit. Mouth-watering and moreish.
