Ableforth's Bathtub Sloe Gin 50cl
Bursting with tart sloe berries, this is a deliciously fruity gin from Ableforth's.
Ableforth's Bathtub Sloe Gin
Since their founding in 2011, Ableforth's have been making drinks that the founders (three friends) would enjoy themselves. They took inspiration from the past, looking at drinks which had robust, fresh - yet unusual flavours. In fact, they just wanted to ensure a "range of really bloody tasty spirits'.
Ableforth's Sloe Gin is made using up to 225g of sloes in every bottle. These are sourced from a UK farmer, and paired with fresh sloe juice to ensure a full flavour of sloes. This, along with a blend of copper-pot distilled gin, made using juniper, cassia, coriander, orange peel (and a few more secret botanicals), ensures a full-bodied Sloe Gin.
Upon pouring this sloe gin you're immediately greeted with the aroma of marzipan, almonds, a rich piney juniper and juicy berry aromas. The sloe gin coats the mouth perfectly, delivering almond, juniper and a profusion of tart berry flavours. It finishes with hints of spice.

Bathtub Sloe Gin tastes great with a bitter lemon or lemon flavoured tonic. 50ml of the gin to 100ml of your chosen tonic worls well (We love this with Double Dutch Double Lemon). Garnish with a wedge of orange.
For a longer, and more spicy drink, try a Sloe Gin Mule. In a highball glass filled with ice, add 40ml of the sloe gin, 3 dashes of Angostura Bitters and 20ml of fresh lime juice. Fill the glass to the top with ginger beer, stir gently and garnish with a wedge of lime.
