58 Gin Distilled Sloe Gin
The beginnings of 58 Gin were humble. They launched in Hackney (an area in North London, UK), with a vision of being a local, and sustainable micro-distillery. They really wanted to create a truue neighbourhood business, supporting the local area and being part of the community.
Whilst they have come far in terms of the business (winning numerous prestigious awards), they remain dedicated to the area they started - and along with their Gin School are now based in Hagerstone (just outside Hackney).
With this, their distilled sloe gin, they macerate foraged sloe berries for six months. These are then added to the distillation process creating a full-bodied berry kick in a gin that remains crystal clear.
The Sloe Berries they use come from from Kent, which is known as the "garden of england" in the south east of the UK. Limited edition due to the fact it is only produced once a year when the sloes are in season.
A truly unique spirit, and one which once tasted fast becomes essential for any real Gin lover. But don't be deceived, its as easily enjoyed in the summer as it is in the winter. Change up the mixers, and this is a very versatile drink
Along with the juniper (it is gin!), and the sloe berries, an additional 8 carefully selected botanicals are used. Most of these are familiar within the 58 Gin family. Coriander Seed, Angelica Root, Orris Root, Cubeb Pepper, Egyptian Lemon, Pink Grapefruit, Bergamot, and Vanilla, all blending perfectly to create something special.
The juniper, whilst present, takes a back seat with this gin. On the nose, there are delicious aromas of ripe plum and damson, joined with orange blossom and. The taste is truly delicious, with a hint of blackforest gateaux, deep cherry and fresh fruit with a light and gentle spiciness. The finish refreshes, with a smoothness which is enhanced with soft vanilla and a touch of citrus.
