Sipsmith Sloe Gin 50cl
A deliciously balanced sweet sloe gin, bursting with fruity flavours
Sipsmith Sloe Gin
Each autumn the sloe berries (a hedgerow fruit in the plum family) are picked and left to rest with Sipsmith's award-winning London Dry Gin.
The harvests vary each year due to the ever changing and unpredictable British weather. The result is much like a good wine, every vintage that is produced has its own wonderfully unique character. But every year it's always complex and bursting with flavour!
On the nose you immediately get a full aroma of redcurrants and ripe winter fruits, this has an edge of almond to it as well. On the palate, cassis comes through which is joined with cherry and a general full and rounded fruitiness. The finish leaves the mouth delightfully coated, with a velvet feel and a balanced sweetness.

Whilst Sloe Gin has a reputation as a winter drink, this is certainly not the only time this can be enjoyed. Try with a tonic or ginger ale for a refreshing drink (50ml of the gin to 150ml of your chosen mixer). We like this with Double Dutch.
Or for a real summer drink, try a Sloe Gin Spritz. In a large wine glass filled with ice, add 50ml of the sloe gin, 10ml of port and 75ml of lemonade. Stir gently, and top up with 75ml of Prosecco. Garnish with a twist of lemon, and a blackberry.
